MECS stands for Minor Eye Conditions Service. It is a NHS funded service for all that are registered with a GP within Ashford, Canterbury & Coastal, Dartford, Gravesham & Swanley, Medway, Swale and Thanet . If you have a sudden concern with the health of your eyes or if your GP advises you to attend – you may be entitled to an appointment with a specifically accredited optometrist. These community based practices offer ease of access to highly trained health professionals with specialised equipment, with the aim of helping to manage your eye complaint.
