minor eye conditions service
To qualify for an NHS funded Minor Eye Conditions Service appointment, you will need to be triaged over the phone. This tells us if your symptoms meet the NHS criteria and how quickly you should be seen.
Demand for these appointments is currently very high.
You may need to travel outside your area to be seen.
If we are unable to see you in the prescribed time period, you will be directed to contact one of the other participating practices listed below. If your symptoms do not meet the MECS criteria and you would still like to have them checked by an Optician, most practices can offer you a private emergency appointment.
