In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the local Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS) has been replaced with the Urgent Eyecare Service in Primary Care (CUES). CUES is for all patients registered with a GP in Kingston, Richmond, Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth areas.
The service will help to ensure that our patients can still access urgent eyecare within Primary Care and using an established trained workforce, while reducing demand on hospital eye services during the pandemic.
The service uses telephone triage and, where necessary, offers face-to-face assessment.
You can find the practices in Wandsworth involved in CUES at www.primaryeyecare.co.uk using the ‘Find a Practice’ tool.
