COVID-19 update

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, and following national guidance, Bristol Eye Hospital will be reducing all routine work with immediate effect. The Bristol Eye Hospital Emergency Department will remain open for emergency eye problems only (8.30am - 4.30pm).

If you had an appointment scheduled at Bristol Eye Hospital, please call the number on your appointment letter to discuss the options available.

To protect both patients and staff we are also trying to reduce attendances and will be assessing patients at the entrance to the eye hospital. We may turn some people away from the emergency department if they present with mild, non-concerning symptoms.

To avoid this, we would highly recommend that patients call the Emergency Department prior to attendance to discuss their visit (unless it is a clear urgent problem).

We have opened up new phone lines to contact the Ophthalmic Emergency Department:

  • 0117 342 4613 (9am - 4pm)
  • 0117 342 4572 (9am - 4pm)

Outside of these hours please contact 0117 923 0000 who will be able to direct you appropriately.

If you have a query about an existing outpatient which is not an emergency please contact your regular medical team to discuss.

Thank you for your understanding in this difficult period.
