At the Duke Elder Eye Unit, St George’s
Jarvis is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
at the Eye Unit, or phone the Helpline number 020 8543 4989
The aim of the service is to be a bridge between the medical
world where doctors do their best to repair people's eyes and
the support services that exist for people with reduced vision.
Some of our specific aims are:-
- To have
time to listen to patients at a very stressful moment.
- To help inform patients of the services
and help available to them and of the possible benefit to them
of accepting registration
as the trigger for such support services.
- To liaise
where necessary with further support services
- To make
sure that the overall system does act in as 'seamless'
manner as possible.
The service is available to all patients
who attend the eye clinic at St. George's Hospital, not just Merton
