South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

01 Out of Hours emergency care for Ophthalmology

The aim of this programme was to deliver a safe and sustainable out of hours emergency service for Ophthalmology across seven trusts. The Senate was consulted for advice on the options developed. The Senate was asked to review the 5 options and identify areas of concern; determine to what extent the models would address the shortfalls identified with the current service and identify any clinical concerns associated with individual options.
