We have successfully introduced and maintained a new video consultation pathway to review new patients with benign eyelid lesions referred to a tertiary ophthalmic unit. Over a year, there were a total of 1,101 appointments for 974 patients. Read More
558 patients (57.3%) were listed for a surgical procedure directly from virtual assessment, 222 patients (22.8%) were discharged, 10.7% (n=104) were monitored via further virtual assessment, 6.7% (n=65) required face-face follow up, and 2.6% (n=25) did not attend their virtual assessment. This new virtual patient pathway provides safe, convenient and efficient care to patients with benign eyelid lesions.
