Eye clinic moveworries patients – Bognor Regis Observer

The wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) clinic, which previously operated out of Worthing Hospital, has been moved to BMI Goring Hall Appointments have been cancelled with some yet to be rescheduled.

Mrs Quilter, who has been receiving treatment for the last five years, was two months into a three-month course of treatment when the change took place.

She said: “My injections are already three weeks late and it is making a big difference to my sight. I don’t understand why they would chance a practice that has been working so well without any warning.

“I don’t know how long I will be waiting, it could be one week, it could be two, three or more and we have had no explanation why this has been changed.

A spokesman for the clinical commissioning group, said: “As a result of a recent review of the service provided by Mr Rassam and Mr Kon, the CCG was unable to continue with the current arrangements and took the difficult decision to move patients currently using this service to one of our other existing providers.

“It is absolutely vital to the CCG that our patients are able to receive the best possible care, and for us this means a service with robust clinical and information governance frameworks in place.
