Launch of a new urgent eye service in Leeds
The NHS in Leeds has teamed up with the Leeds Local Optical Committee to launch a new service called CUES, which stands for Covid-19 Urgent Eyecare Service. Access the service by calling NHS111.
CUES is free to access and is for all patients. The service will predominately be delivered over the phone or a video consultation. However, depending on the severity of the individuals eye problem they may need to be seen face to face by a clinician, this could be in the community or at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
