Sheffield Local Optometric Committee

Referral Via SPA

Optometrist Referrals via the Single Point of Access (SPA)

Current initiatives for the review/triage of Community Optometrist GOS18 referrals and appropriate direction of Child Eye Screening referrals are at present:
Please send GOS18s to : Single Point of Access (Ophthalmology Referrals), Lightwood House, Lightwood Lane, Sheffield S8 8BG.

FAX 0114 3051461, 0114 3051462 or 01143051463

• Only GOS18 or Optometrist referral letters clearly marked “GOS18’‘ will be accepted by the SPA
• All referrals for cataracts, glaucoma that have gone through GRR or CATS, and referrals from PEARS for an ophthalmology opinion must be sent directly to the patient’s chosen secondary care provider.
• Letters for GP information/notification should be sent directly to the GP, not to the SPA.

If you have questions about these changes please contact Lynda Liddament (Tel 305 1179 Email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address))
