Replacement glasses - how to get them

Setting: modern day, NHS hospital
Scenario: my adult OFC has been attacked while out jogging. In the course of this, her glasses were knocked off and stood on, resulting in both lenses being smashed and the frame being rendered unwearable. Witnesses help drive her attackers off and call an ambulance; it's one of these guys who find her broken specs on the ground.

What I want to know is what will the result of this be at the hospital? She needs her glasses to see. Without them she won't even be able to do something as simple as cross a road safely, and she's likely to be walking into every lamppost, bin, parked car, low wall, pushchair and small child in her path. Would she be sent home anyway once her injuries are treated?

She's entitled to an NHS voucher towards the cost of her glasses, but the prescription on file at her optician's is several months old and already out-of-date so she'd need an eye-test as well.
