Once a patient has been entered into the Low Vision service, their appointment can be booked.
Look for the yellow tab with 'Book LV Service'. As with all OPERA yellow tabs, simply click it to start the booking process.

You should only discharge a patient if you have followed the local protocol for patient contact. If you wish to book an appointment you will be asked to enter the appointment details as usual.

Patient Appointment Letter
Once you have completed the process, a copy of the patient's appointment letter will be available in the document section of the referral and the tab will update. If you have indicated a failure to contact or engage this will be recorded.
