SpaMedica fundraise for Cornerstone charity

SpaMedica has been collecting staff donations for the Cornerstone Day Centre in Salford. Cornerstone is a charity local to our Manchester hospital, so we are delighted to be able to help a cause that is so close to home. 

The Cornerstone Day Centre provides a “warm, safe and comfortable environment” for homeless and vulnerable people in the area, where they can enjoy a hot meal, showering facilities, access to a telephone and counselling services. The centre also provides links to safe overnight accommodation for clients and can assist people in looking for employment. 

Our donations will be used to buy food which will be distributed to users of the centre over the Christmas period. 

As well as collecting monetary donations with which to do a 'big shop' for the centre, we have also been collecting tins and long-life food to donate.

We hope this small gesture will go a long way to helping the centre feed more vulnerable people this Christmas.

SpaMedica translates patient information booklets to Urdu

SpaMedica is currently working to translate our patient information booklets from English to Urdu. In doing this, we hope our Urdu-speaking patients will be able to understand more about the eye condition they have been diagnosed with and the treatment they will undergo with us.

Initially, the Urdu booklets will be available to read and download on the SpaMedica website. It is hoped this will be achieved by the end of the year. 

Our booklets may be translated into other languages in the future, depending on patient need.

SpaMedica visits Liverpool's Whitechapel Centre to help the homeless

Three SpaMedica staff  members visited the Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool last week in a drive to help the city's homeless in the run up to winter.

Our staff took scarves, socks, hats and gloves donated by SpaMedica, and distributed them to the homeless people who dropped by.

A local optometrist was also present, giving free eye tests to the many people who turned up. This was an invaluable service, helping people who cannot easily access healthcare services. A free hot lunch was also served. 

Our staff found the day very rewarding, and SpaMedica is delighted to support such a good cause. Photos of the event can be seen here.

SpaMedica relaunches patient information booklets

SpaMedica is delighted to announce the relaunch of its patient information booklets.

Staff have worked hard in recent weeks to ensure the information booklets provided to patients ahead of their surgery are as good as they can possibly be.

SpaMedica produces four patient information booklets in total, covering cataract surgery and post-operative care, YAG capsulotomy and AMD treatment.

Each booklet contains comprehensive information about the condition itself, the treatment provided by SpaMedica and post-operative care instructions to help ensure a quick and straightforward recovery.

Presented in a clear and easy-to-read format, it's hoped the booklets will provide patients with all the information they need prior to their visit to SpaMedica, and answer any queries they have relating to their upcoming procedure, setting their mind at ease.

SpaMedica holds CET evening for local optometrists

SpaMedica is celebrating the success of its latest CET (Continuing Education and Training) evening, held on 11th June 2015. 

SpaMedica CET evenings are a chance for optometrists from around the North West to continue their training and education, through informative lectures by some of the leaders in the field. By attending these evenings, optometrists earn points which show that their training and industry knowledge is current and up-to-date.

Our latest CET evening centred around AMD (Age-related macular degeneration) and included three lectures by industry experts. The lectures discussed the signs and symptoms of AMD, the relevance of OCT scanning in diagnosing AMD and the relationship between OCT scan findings and FFAs (a process in which dye is injected into the arm, travels to the eye and highlights the blood vessels here) .

The event was held at the Thistle Haydock Hotel, with dinner and drinks provided for attendees. A fantastic turn out meant the evening was a great success.

Staff have donated blankets, tents and sleeping bags to help the people who have lost their homes, and these are due to be sent out on a flight shortly.

SpaMedica has also made a monetary donation of £1000, which has bought 100 LifeStraws. LifeStraws filter dirty and contaminated water, making it safe for people to drink.
