There are Wet AMD services available locally at St Helens and Warrington eye departments. Local optometrists should refer rapidly to these services where they suspect the presence of wet AMD. This page includes versions of the AMD atlas document, where the referral form can be printed already with the required fax number. Alternatively, you could use the GOS PDF or practice software to generate a letter with the same information included.
The referral letter should be faxed or emailed via NHS email directly to one of our AMD services at St Helens or Warrington on the same day as the patient’s appointment. The service will contact the patient and arrange an initial assessment within 2 weeks. NB The LOC does not advise referring AMD patients to the GP for onward referral.
