AMD Direct referral

Aintree University  Hospital


In the Sefton area we are lucky to have  Aintree University  Hospital who have been approved   for the treatment of WET AMD with  Lucentis/Eylea 

Patients will be under the care of one of the Retinal Consultants Mr D Clark, Mr A Kamal, Nihal Kenawy. Indu Kumar, L. Toth

The treatments can now be on first as well as second eyes.To avoid delays and ensure the patients are seen promptly a direct referral scheme has been set up.

Please note patients with vision LESS THAN 6/96 are not eligible for referral under the direct scheme and should be referred as normal via their GP.


However patients with lower levels of vision but recent vision loss (less than 1/12) can have their details faxed through under the "Fast track" scheme.


Please use one of the following numbers 

  • 0151 529-0144
  • 0151 529-0208
  • 0151 529-0145



You should leave a message on any of the answering machines to say that you have sent a fax referral  and who the patient. Aintree will only return your call if we they a problem with the referral or we they not received the fax referral.


Community Optometrists are encouraged to refer their patients directly to  Aintree using the downloadable forms  as long as they meet the 6/96 or better criteria. Please complete the form using black ink and fax through as per the details on the form.
