York MP Julian Sturdy officially opens the clinic in York
Increasing numbers of consultant ophthalmic surgeons will have practice privilege opportunities as Optegra Eye Health Care expands its clinic network.
Business development director Kathryn Bryant said: ‘The new clinics which we are launching allow us to work even more closely with Integrated Care Boards around the country providing timely cataract care and helping to reduce their cataract waiting lists.
‘For surgeons in these regions this also creates an opportunity for them to individually expand their core NHS or private work and enables them to focus on specialist high-volume cataract surgery.’
Its newest eye clinic in York, opened by Julian Sturdy MP, is purely dedicated to NHS cataract patients.
For each new clinic, such as York, Optegra is appointing one surgeon, with a view to increasing this as demand increases in the future.
