Urgent Eyecare Service Leaflet

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CUES (COVID-19 Urgent Eye Care Service) was launched to support the pandemic. This service now supersedes the Minor Eye Condition Service (MECS)

The CUES is an extended version of the MECS service which allows remote consultation and uses IT capability to provide a digital service. In some areas, an Independent prescriber may be used to prescribe medicines for the patient.

For further details please refer to the service summary, available here

Where a medicine is required, Pharmacies will directly be supplying or selling (where appropriate), “Pharmacy only” (P) medicines and General Sales List (GSL) medicines, and the following POMs: chloramphenicol, cyclopentolate hydrochloride, fusidic acid and tropicamide.

In these new CUES areas, patients will be provided with a private written order for purchase items over the counter or access the Minor Ailment Service (MAS) in areas where the MAS is commissioned.
