GHA Ophthalmic Clinic team thanks the University of Gibraltar

The team at the GHA’s Ophthalmic Clinic gave staff and students at the University of Gibraltar a cake to say thank you for giving them a temporary base over the last few months as part of Covid-19 measures.

The clinic, which has now returned to its usual location at the hospital, was relocated to the University’s specialist medical simulation suite back in March in order to reduce the impact on essential medical services.

The simulation suite, which will again host the University’s BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing students as from September, had been used by the GHA’s specialist eye team to offer intravitreal injections for patients suffering from Acute Macular Degeneration as well as seeing patients requiring urgent treatment and reviews.

“The initiative was an example of how Gibraltar’s different institutions have collaborated in response to the pandemic. The University is also currently hosting the Covid-19 testing facility,” said a statement from the University.
