Looking for a consultant?
Patients can request a referral on the NHS to see a specialist, such as an ophthalmologist, for the diagnosis and treatment of a condition. But this depends on what your registered GP feels is best for you. Consultant ophthalmologists cannot enter into discussions about individual patient conditions without a referral from the patient’s GP.
More information can be found on the NHS Choices website about how referrals work.
