Did you know that Hull patients suffering with certain eye problems can be seen free of charge at a number of Opticians across the city as part of the Community Ophthalmic Referral Refinement Scheme (CORRS)?
CORRS allows Hull patients suffering with the following symptoms to be seen free of charge at selected accredited opticians across the city:
- Red/irritable eyes
- Sore and painful eyes
- Sudden or recent vision changes
- Flashes and floaters
Patients being treated as part of CORRS will be seen by one of the selected NHS approved optometrists for treatment, advice or onward referral as necessary. Patients with the above symptoms can self-refer to CORRS without having to attend their GP first. GPs and Pharmacists can also refer to CORRS.
Distribution of posters has begun, to both the Opticians involved in the scheme and GP practices across the city so patients are aware of where to go for treatment.
