DHSS Minister visits Ophthalmology Clinic 20 December 2007

Hon W E Teare MHK, Minister for Health and Social Security yesterday (Wednesday, 19th December) visited staff and patients at the Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic to see the progression of the Ophthalmology Waiting List Initiative first hand.

The Minister said,

“It is great to see the Ophthalmology Waiting List Initiative underway. I am sure the launch of this service and rapid decrease in waiting times will be the best possible Christmas gift for patients, who have waited too long for treatment.”

The Minister added,

“I was very pleased to meet with the Ophthalmology surgeon, Mr. Poellman and the Ophthalmology staff. Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital is ideally suited to the type of work necessary for the Ophthalmology Waiting List Initiative and the staff have embraced the challenge.”

Ophthalmology pre-assessment sessions are already underway at Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital, with the first operating sessions scheduled for January 2008.
