Just to add that not all hospital eye clinics have a contact lens department. Those hospitals usually then contract out the supply of contact lenses to a specified optometrist in the area giving the patient what's known as a HESp voucher. While the £57 per lens charge still applies with this voucher, from what I've heard from our members, opticians under the 'contracted out' scheme do tend to make some additional charges, and these seem to vary from practice to practice.
