CHANGES

Glaucoma Changes scheme (available at the Huntingdon practice only for Changes 1 & 2, available at Ramsey practice for Changes 1 appointments only).

Gathercole & Ward participates in the CHANGES (Community and Hinchingbrooke Allied Network Glaucoma Evaluation) Scheme. Patients who are suspected of having glaucoma are evaluated in the practice by our Optometrists with a Special Interest (OSI) in Glaucoma before either seeing a Consultant Ophthalmologist at Hinchingbrooke Hospital or being discharged to their own Optometrist. In future, our OSIs will be seeing patients with stable glaucoma in the practice, reducing the need for these patients to visit the hospital. The CHANGES scheme was the runner-up in the 2007 ‘Allergan Glaucoma Achievement Award’.
