The Minor Eye Care Service (MECS)
University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, Derriford Road, Plymouth, PL6 8DH
Tel: 01752 202082

The service will provide urgent eye assessments for recent and sudden onset of minor eye conditions such as red eyes; with no loss of vision, dry, gritty or itchy eyes, ingrown eyelashes and mild ocular pain. The service aims to provide easily accessible care closer to home for patients, avoiding a trip to Derriford Hospital’s busy Royal Eye Infirmary.

Please see leaflet below for more information about the MECS service.
