Abstract

In 1997 Liverpool, London and Sheffield were designated as Centres of Excellence for adult ocular oncology in England by the National Commissioning Group (formerly the National Specialist Commissioning Advisory Group). The National Services Division in Scotland similarly designate a service for Scotland at North Glasgow University Hospital.

These guidelines are not intended to be prescriptive but to act as an aid to considering referral of patients to the nationally designated ocular oncology centres. Referring ophthalmologists should continue to exercise discretion based on the individual clinical presentations of individual patients.
