A one-stop macular degeneration clinic opens at Amersham Hospital

by | Nov 7, 2016 | Health, News

People living in Buckinghamshire who suffer from some of the most common forms of avoidable sight loss can now benefit from dedicated one-stop clinics through a partnership between the Trust and Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd.

By expanding the service at Amersham Hospital to create additional and dedicated clinic rooms, wet age-related macular degeneration (wAMD) patients can now be assessed and treated on the same day. It is hoped that these improvements to the service will greatly improve the patient experience by reducing the number of hospital visits required and also by reducing the waiting times following diagnosis. Bucks Healthcare
