Urgent Referral Update
31 July 2021
Please note the following changes made by Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust when seeking ophthalmology advice for emergency referrals.
As of Monday 2nd August 2021 the ophthalmology emergency advice/referral guidance line number (2065335) which was a temporary measure during COVID, will cease to exist as the service will be handed back to central PCAL i.e. pre-covid pathway.
The number for central PCAL is (0113) 2065996 and any optometrist wanting to refer in acutely should now use this number.
The CUES pathway is ongoing and any patients that qualify for CUES should continue to be referred through to this pathway.
