Whipps Cross Ophthalmology Referrals

26 August 2020

Please be aware of the following guidance:

Routine referrals to Barts Health, can only occur via the electronic referral service. This has restricted referrals to be made via GP’s. Paper referrals are no longer accepted, and this has been for the past two years.

Urgent referrals can still attend the walk in eye casualty. In addition there are the email addresses that were circulated in April, which we are still monitoring.
