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, this will normally be supplied or prescribed by the optometrist, as part of the consultation, through the issue of an NHS CUES written order. The written order is signed by the prescriber. This will be supplied by a community pharmacy of the patient’s choice.

You should only receive NHS CUES written orders from patients registered with a GP from one of the areas above (previously MECS areas).
