The COVID-19 pandemic has caused dramatic changes to the provision of medical services within the UK and has caused a reduction in ophthalmic services being provided to reduce the spread of the disease. This guidance has been developed to aid ophthalmic services in the prioritisation of their outpatient capacity of their departments. The majority of outpatient appointment types are covered within this guidance however it is not an
exhaustive list and services may wish to adapt this list to create a prioritisation system which best suits the population which they provide an ophthalmic service.
