Cataract Referral Pathway Reminder for Practices – Portsmouth, SE Hampshire and Fareham & Gosport CCGs

Portsmouth, SE Hants and Fareham & Gosport CCGs ask that when referring patients to their GPs for onward referral to ophthalmology services, please could optometrists not recommend a provider. The GP will discuss provider options with their patients before referring on, so to make a recommendation ahead of this is limiting patient choice.
