Eye care vision nears reality
Works for phase one of the Lions Caribbean Eye Care Centre are nearing completion and the staff of the Ophthalmology Department at the QEH are making preparations to move into their new home come February.
In a press release, Acting Director of Medical Services, David Callender, explained that there will be no clinics in the Eye Department from Monday to Friday of next week in order to facilitate the planned relocation of the department to the Lions building.
“All of the clinics for that week are being rescheduled and we are currently working on assigning new dates. During this period however, only emergencies and post-operative cases will be seen and repeat prescriptions will be written for those patients who need them,” he assured in the release.
“We apologise for the inconvenience; however it is necessary in order for us to expand the service delivered by the department and the hospital as we make the transition to our new home. We anticipate that clinics will resume on Monday February 4 and we look forward to the public’s cooperation,” Callender said. (DS)
