Ophthalmology

With eye related treatments making up 10% of all outpatient appointments and eye clinic attendances up 30% over the last five years, it’s safe to say that ophthalmology departments are under strain right across the UK.

When it comes to eye care, patients need to be seen as soon as possible. And that goes for follow-up treatments too. Any delay, and a patient’s sight is at risk.

How insourcing ophthalmology services from 18 Week Support can help your team

Led by Nabeel Malik, we can provide full operational and clinical teams to provide additional subspecialty clinics and surgical services.

Our skill mix allows us to tailor clinics to sub specialty needs, giving Trusts the flexibility to provide care where most urgent.

We employ best practice pathways, one stop clinics and a fully formed service from 1st attendance, treatment to follow up and discharge.

As a national provider, we bring together expertise across the broad range of ophthalmology subspecialties namely:

  • Cataracts
  • External Eye disease / Cornea
  • Glaucoma,
  • Medical Retina
  • Neuro-ophthalmology and
  • Oculoplastics
  • Laser and Intravitreal Therapies
  • Minor ops
  • Cataract and Oculoplastic surgery
  • Nurse led preassessment and clinics
  • Our pre-assessment clinics are run concurrently with our patients or as standalone services.
