All our oculoplastic patients are welcome to attend a drop-in, oculoplastic meeting held on a Wednesday afternoon, 2.00 - 4.30pm, every other month.  Recently we have had informal talks given by members of the Oculoplastic Team, and hand massage, nail and hair treatments by the Hair and Beauty students from Manchester College.

We would be delighted if you could join us for a cup of tea/coffee and cake.
