Specialist eye hospital group, Optegra, has opened its first-ever outreach clinic in Cheshire.
The new clinic is based within Wilmslow Health Centre and was the brainchild of local GP, Dr Amar Ahmed, who is a partner at the centre.
Dr Ahmed said: “I approached Optegra as we were very happy with the care they were giving our patients. It was timely, high quality, and always led by top eye consultants. This is the latest in a number of projects we offer here in Wilmslow, and we see it as an ideal service to offer patients – not just those registered at our surgery, but patients across Cheshire.”
The clinic runs every Tuesday evening and Saturday morning and is led by a number of ophthalmic surgeons including Optegra’s Niall Patton.
Caroline McHugh, hospital manager for Optegra Manchester Eye Hospital, added: “This is our first outreach clinic, and it is wonderful to bring our experts and state of the art equipment to a GP surgery, making our services so easily available throughout Cheshire.
“We are always looking for suitable partners and this new clinic at Wilmslow Health Centre is an exciting opportunity to bring our full range of treatments as well as offering advice on all aspects of eye care and eye health. We are already starting to look into other outreach clinics.”
