The last week has seen radical changes to all of our lives. Professionally the vast majority of optometry practices in the UK are only providing essential emergency eye-care in line with the government lock-down and minimising social movement and contact.
During this period I thought it might be useful to share one of the tools I have developed for emergency eye-care work for you to use free of charge. The Eye Emergency Triage Note will help you and your staff when fielding calls from patients and trying to decide whether they need to be seen in practice. It can also provide a useful record of this communication for their records.
I thought it would be helpful to share this, as I neither want to profit from this situation or to be making multiple trips to the post office.

I hope this is useful, and please take care during this time.
