Cross Border Directive

If you have have been referred to the HSE waiting list for cataract treatment, you could receive reimbursement if you have your treatment at Cathedral Eye Clinic.

The Cross Border Health Directive means that you can skip long waiting lists, some of which have been stated to be up to three years, and have your procedure conducted by our expert team within one – two months.

The process is as follows:

  1. Visit your GP and ask for a referral to Cathedral Eye Clinic, via the Cross Border Directive
  2. Print off and fill in these forms CBD Pro Forma
  3. Book your consultation and procedure with Cathedral Eye Clinic
  4. Have your cataract procedure(s)
  5. Claim your reimbursement from the HSE

You can then claim back the full amount through the HSE Cross Border Directive, who aim to reimburse all costs within 30 days. The only outstanding cost to you would be your travel to and from Belfast.
