Confirmation of  the optometrist referral pathway for Portsmouth, Fareham & Gosport and South Eastern Hampshire/Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust

It has come to our attention that a general enquiries mail box held by the Ophthalmology Department at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust is being used by optometrists to send referrals to the department.

The department has set up an autoreply message explaining this and the mailbox is regularly checked, with emails being replied to giving the correct email address but the department have also asked us to share this message with local optometrists.

To clarify, the pathway for optometrist referrals for our local population is as follows:

Urgent referrals – to PHU via Pho-tr.phteyeurgentrefs@nhs.net

Routine referrals – to PHU via GP or to Practice Plus Group (St Mary’s)directly

Best wishes,
