Foreign body in eye/scratched cornea, CAN'T MAKE AN APPOINTMENTWatch
A&E said it's not urgent enough, they said go to urgent care center.
Urgent care center said I need a referral from a GP.
Phoned the GP, they told me I don't need a referral and need to go to A&E.
What do I do?
do you really think i should go to a&e then? I don't want to sit there for hours to be told I wasted their time and get sent home. It's not urgent at all, I've had this sensation in my eye for 4-5 days, it's just that no other place will see me.
If you’re just assuming that something went in your eye “at some point”, then no probably not. You still need to be seen fairly urgently somewhere, though.
Also some A&Es have eye casualties which are separate and you can just self present to without a referral.
