Urgent WET ARMD cases can be referred via the above two numbers.

Wet ARMD clinic coordinator (Jo Chapman) phone 01422 224110 for queries about wet ARMD appointments or existing patients

Ophthalmology clinic reception desk – 01422 222247

UPDATE

Jo Chapman is the retina clinic co-ordinator and she is based in CRH, the wetARMD service is only based in CRH ( ie all Huddersfield patients travel to CRH if they require this service)

Only suspected wetARMD patients will be seen in wetARMD clinics (previously called “macula clinics”)

Inflammatory CNVs must not be sent to the wetARMD clinic, they should go through the uveitis service.

Myopic CNV’s should be referred to the retina clinic . The same would go for traumatic CNVM etc.
