Wet AMD is not an emergency but should be referred, on the same day that you see and diagnose the patient, to a dedicated FAST TRACK Wet AMD clinic where they should be seen within two weeks of referral. Wherever possible you should try to obtain proof of delivery (either by requesting a delivery/read receipt on emails, or by phoning the co-ordinator).

Also note that hospitals on occasions reject wet AMD referrals if the patient’s GP is not in the correct area.

EeRS is now available for Dudley Optometrists referring to Russells Hall, and the AMD fast track pathway can be accessed via that route. If you haven’t yet signed up please see this page. Otherwise follow the instructions below:
