HOW TO ARRANGE FOLLOW UPS?

Before arranging for a follow up, think of "how, when and where the patients will be best followed up?" 


Patients can be followed up by 5 methods:

  1. Refer to a subspecialty service for review in their clinic.

  2. Primary Care Follow Up Clinic

  3. Modality Clinics if need to be seen after a week. Click here for the criteria.

  4. Back to their local hospital (see patient postcode) - ask reception to fax urgent letter to arrange appointment

  5. Eye ED if need to be seen within 1-3 days (PLEASE ONLY USE THIS AS A LAST OPTION)

Please indicate on Medisoft and advised patient to go to the reception desk to make the relevant appointment as well as ticking on the sheet note for ED review / PCFU / Modality / subspecialist review.

HOW TO USE THE SLITREC

Slit Rec is a simple device that can assist taking photo for whatever your view on the slit lamp (anterior segment but also post segment using Volk lenses) using your own mobile phone. Sometimes you need to adjust the fixings of the device to get a good photo. There are 4 fitted in the respective rooms (ED2, Eye Ward second room, OPD Area 3 Room 1 and Sandwell Room 6). 

For data governance, we ask you to take the photos only using the MS Teams mobile app so that photos will not be stored in your device. Attached below is a simple guide on how to use.
