Other Useful Information:

Ludlow patients who are seen at Hereford hospital – The Low Vision clinic at Shrewsbury hospital is hoping to set up a new clinic in Ludlow in order to issue magnifiers free of charge for people who live in Shropshire but are seen by a Consultant at Hereford hospital. This is done via a referral from the Eye Care Liaison Officer from Hereford hospital, Jenni Moorhouse. If you have one of these letters please ring Shrewsbury Low Vision appointments on 01743 261000 Ext 3324 (NOT the appointments number on the letter)!


If you live in Shropshire & see a Consultant in Hereford but haven’t been referred for a magnifier please let Rachel know and she will can look into the situation for you. (If you live in Herefordshire and see the Hereford Optometrist you already have access to receiving a magnifier free of charge).
