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:
Refer to a subspecialty service for review in their clinic.
Primary Care Follow Up Clinic
Modality Clinics if need to be seen after a week. Click here for the criteria.
Back to their local hospital (see patient postcode) - ask reception to fax urgent letter to arrange appointment
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.
