Community Eye Services

Glaucoma Referral refinement

SE Hampshire and Portsmouth City

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust has sub contracted work to a number of practices in SE Hampshire and Portsmouth City. For a fixed fee they carry out a number of tests on patients referred with raised IOPs and refer findings to PHT who then decides whether patient needs to be seen by consultant.

Glaucoma Monitoring Service

SE Hampshire and Portsmouth City

A number of practices provide a stable glaucoma monitoring service within Portsmouth hospitals catchment area.

CUES

If you are a practice bordering West Hampshire or North Hampshire CCG and you see patients registered with one of their GPs you may wish to take part in CUES (the Covid Urgent Eye Care Service).  This service triages and manages, where appropriate, urgent conditions in the community https://primaryeyecare.co.uk/services/urgent-eyecare-service/. Ocular emergencies (such as a penetrating eye injury or chemical injury) should continue to be directed to Eye A&E.

If you do not provide CUES but the ocular condition is appropriate for this service, please provide patients with a West Hampshire or North Hampshire GP the central telephone number:  0300 303 4922

You may also want to consider registering to provide post-cataract appointments and glaucoma referral refinement for these patients.  Please contact Hampshire LOC for further information.

Guidance on conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care

NHS England carried out a public consultation on reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for minor, short-term health concerns from December 2017 to March 2018 resulting in guidance for healthcare professionals being published.  Likewise, guidance regarding treatments eligible for NHS prescriptions continues to be updated and can be found on NHS England’s webpage.

NHS England request GPs not to give NHS prescriptions (even to those eligible for ‘free’ prescriptions) for many conditions in the following categories:

  • Conditions which are considered to be self-limitingand so does not need treatment as it will heal of its own accord;
  • Conditions which lends itself to self-care, i.e. that the person suffering does not normally need to seek medical care but may decide to seek help with symptom relief from a local pharmacy and use an over the counter medicine.
  • Vitamins/minerals and probiotics

Conditions (and treatments) affecting patients seen by optometrists include:

Conjunctivitis

Dry Eyes / sore tired eyes

Mild to moderate hayfever

Lutein and Antioxidants

Omega-3 Fatty Acid Compounds

Please familiarize yourself with the following resources in order for you to advise your patients appropriately regarding self-care rather than routinely directing them back to their GP for an NHS prescription.

Referral Guidelines

For Ophthalmic Contractors wishing to refer patients for Low Vision to local providers:

Referral-For-Low-Vision-Aid

QA Hospital Portsmouth

Currently optometrists use the GOS 18, a letter or a practice template for referring to Hospital Eye Services.  To encourage feedback from consultants it is vital that the name of the referring optometrists and contact details are clear.

Secondary care referrals (with the exception of urgents) must go via the patients GP as they have access to the eRS advice and guidance function or to Practice Plus Group (St Mary’s), which is something CCGs are encouraging within their system to help manage referral demand.

In terms of the agreed pathway for referral to eye casualty –

Portsmouth Hospitals Mailboxes – Ophthalmology Department

We are aware there have been some concerns around duplicate mailboxes within the Trust and as a result the Trust has reviewed their processes and confirmed the following:

Urgent referrals: pho-tr.phteyeurgentrefs@nhs.net  –  to be used for urgent referrals (Including Wet AMD) in replacement of the fax machine and inability to access eRS, monitored daily.

Emergency referrals: Emergency cases should be discussed with eye casualty via 023 9228 6162. If following discussion with eye casualty patient data needs to be shared, it should be sent to the above email address (pho-tr.phteyeurgentrefs@nhs.net)  entitled FAO EEC to ensure it is picked up by the correct person.

The following accounts will be closed down with immediate effect:

pho-tr.eye-emergency@nhs.net

Ophthalmology@porthosp.nhs.uk  – this is not an encrypted mailbox

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

GPs have been notified by the CCG that they will be responsible for forwarding non-urgent referrals to QAH as per the following message:

“Direct Optometrist referrals to secondary care providers

Following a number of queries relating to the local referral pathway, the CCGs would like to confirm that local Optometrists are not able to refer directly to secondary care providers – the referral must go back to the GP for validation and onward referral.

 Optometrists can however refer directly to the Practice Plus Community Service (previously Care UK) where the referral meets agreed clinical guidelines.

 The CCGs continue to look at opportunities around streamlining this process going forward and will keep you updated. In the meantime, if you receive a request from an Optometrist to refer your patient onto secondary care (GOS18), please could you ensure this is done and not sent back to the Optometrist.”

Glaucoma and Cataract patients should be referred to St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre.
