Teach and Treat Clinics

NES has established regional teach and treat clinics to provide support.

Teach and Treat Clinics give community Optometrists the opportunity to manage and treat patients under the close personal supervision of an Ophthalmologist whilst at the same time providing first class patient care for patients presenting with acute eye problems. 

The training is designed to increase the Optometrist's exposure to acute conditions and work through the differential diagnosis to a management plan agreed with the Ophthalmologist. 

We have a dedicated page in Turas Learn, where you will find more information (eg consultant CVs, clinic essential information).
