The purpose of the Bassetlaw Ophthalmology Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (CATS) is to improve access and patient experience of common ophthalmic conditions, promote awareness and understanding to improve self-care and treatment for patients with long term ophthalmic conditions and improve the health and well-being of Bassetlaw residents.

The Ophthalmology CATS will possess clinical autonomy and a reputation for the delivery of a high quality and clinically safe service.

The service will operate as two parts:

A service which offers diagnosis and management of patients with; cataracts, glaucoma / suspected glaucoma, YAG, general / oculoplastics, medical retina, macular conditions & wet AMD. Management of patients defined as "stable" will reflect the national guidance set out with the NICE guidance and SYB CfO policy.

This method of "One Stop Shop" will ensure patient care is effectively delivered through a minimum number of patient contacts.
Follow up ratios will need to exceed an average of 1:1
