Official launch of Beacon Eye Clinic Rapid Access
Pictured at the launch of the #BeaconEyeClinicRapidAccess at the Beacon Consultants Clinic this morning were the Minister for Health, Simon Harris and Dr Arthur Cummings, who in addition to being Medical Director at the Wellington Eye Clinic, also has the same role at the new service.
The Beacon Eye Clinic Rapid Access is designed to complement existing urgent services for patients with eye problems. The Clinic offers a priority appointment with a Consultant Specialist Ophthalmologist for patients within 1-2 days, and targets a waiting time of less than 30 minutes for patients when they arrive at the Clinic.
Also pictured with the Minister are the other Eye Surgeons on the Wellington team. From left to right, Dr Graeme Rogers, Dr Dylan Joseph, Dr Arthur Cummings, Simon Harris and Dr Paul Kenna.
