Community Ophthalmic Referral Refinement Scheme (CORRS)
The Community Ophthalmic Referral Refinement Scheme (CORRS) allows Hull patients to be seen free of charge at selected accredited opticians across the city.
Patients suffering with the following symptoms can be seen by one of the selected NHS approved optometrists for treatment, advice or onward referral as necessary:
- Red/irritable eyes
- Sore and painful eyes
- Sudden or recent vision changes
- Flashes and floaters
Six Opticians are part of the Hull scheme which allows patients registered with a Hull GP to be seen free of charge when presenting with the above eye problems. Patients do not need to register with the selected Opticians they can self-refer to the service, by calling their preferred CORRS optician to make an appointment, without a prior visit to their GP. GP’s and Pharmacists may also refer patients to the scheme.
Routine optical check-ups will often pick up any causes for concern, but painful and irritating symptoms or sudden changes to vision should be looked into as an emergency.
If you have been suffering with any of the above symptoms contact one of the below Opticians to be seen as part of CORRS:
