The Chesterfield Eye Centre opened in June 2012, a £2 million, purpose built centre that has transformed an area previously reserved for private care into a state-of-the-art Ophthalmic facility.

The centre combines all outpatient facilities previously situated in geographically separate outpatient clinics with the diabetic retinopathy service that was previously situated at the Saltergate Health Centre.

Each ophthalmic area has its own seating for waiting and there is a dedicated area for paediatrics with wall art and books to keep them occupied whilst waiting for their appointments.

There are also clinic rooms for consultations, viewing rooms, testing booths and photographic areas to take detailed pictures of a patient’s eyes if necessary. There is also a base for Sight Support Derbyshire and a reception area for check in.

The Trust is also part of the Derbyshire Diabetic Eye Screening programme which you can read more about by clicking here

The centre took just over seven months to complete, you can see more about it on the information video below:
