Eye doctor’s resignation leaves clinic short-handed

| 12/10/2011

(CNS): The unexpected and sudden resignation of the Health Services Authority’s ophthalmologist patients are now facing cancellations and appointment changes, the hospital has stated. Officials said arrangements are in place to maintain the services at the eye clinic withlimited hours until the clinic is able to recruit a new full time physician.  The HSA apologised to patients but gave no reasons for the unexpected departure of the eye doctor. Staff members at the Lion’s Eye Clinic are currently contacting patients to reschedule appointments.

“We are working diligently to recruit an Ophthalmologist and hope to have someone permanently in the post in the near future,” the HSA said.   “The HSA would again like to  thank  all our patients for their understanding as we work to resolve this unexpected gap in physician staffing at the Eye Clinic.”

For more information and to clarify appointment times please call the Eye Clinic at 244-2818 or our Patient Services Representative, Ms. Tina McLean at 244-2820.
