NHS referrals

How do I become an NHS patient?

If your optician or GP suspects or diagnoses you with an eye condition, they will explain all your treatment options and where you can choose to receive your treatment on the NHS.

If you want to choose Newmedica for your treatment, just let them know and they’ll make all the arrangements for your referral in line with locally-commissioned NHS referral pathway.

How long does the NHS referral process take?

Once we receive your referral from your GP or optician we will contact you within a few days to book your initial appointment. We aim to see you within 4 weeks of receiving your referral.

When will I hear back from Newmedica?

Once we’ve received your referral, we’ll be in touch with you within a couple of days to organise an appointment for you.

What do patients say about the NHS clinics?

Feedback is really important to us. That’s why we encourage all our patients to tell us about the quality of service they received at our clinics via NHS.UK. We also ask them to complete a patient experience survey after they visit. You can read about some of the nice things our patients have said here.
