Information for referrers
The North-West Macular Service provided by Care UK and MCEP is the highest performing in the UK, and is unique in achieving clinical trial outcomes (mean of ~8 letters BCVA improvement at 12 months) at CCG scale.
We achieve this through tight adherence to existing treatment protocols, and early, accurate intervention. We see patients within 48-hours of referral, and therefore have established fast-track referral pathways for optometrists and GPs.
Local referrers will have received information packs and fast-track referral forms. If you are not within our existing CCGs and have a patient who would like to be referred to the service, please download a fast-track form here. Upon receipt, we will contact you to confirm that we have received it, and will treat the patient.
