Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy Monitoring

A new community service is being commissioned to monitor patients on HCQ/chloroquine. Please do not refer any patients to the Eye Hospitals in the meantime unless the optometrist has diagnosed definite toxicity. When the service is up and running the provider will be in contact to make sure they have a complete record of all the patients needing monitoring and when.

More details about the arrangements are in the letter here.
