How to be referred

Although some patients with existing macular conditions can self-refer to our service (you will have received a letter from your GP), most patients must first be referred by your optician/optometrist or GP.

If you are from the Greater Preston and Chorley and South Ribble area you will be directly referred to us if you need Wet AMD treatment.

If you are from outside the area you may still be able to be treated by us. If you are suffering from Wet AMD or have suspected Wet AMD, simply speak to your GP or optometrist who will contact us directly.

Once we've received your referral we'll contact you to make an appointment to see us at the most convenient location for you. If you can’t make it to your appointment please contact the centre to let us know as soon as possible. We’ll do our best to reschedule your appointment for the date and time that suits you.
