"Outpatient day surgery"

About: Holme Valley Memorial Hospital / Day surgery

(as the patient),

I had a small cyst in the corner of my eye. It was noticable and people passed comment about it. A male doctor at my surgery said it could not be removed on the NHS but the lady doctor immediately agreed it could be done when I again broached the subject of having it removed. So get another opinion. It was a really quick process from the doctor writing to Holme Valley Memorial Hospital. Excellent service when I got there and a quick, efficient operation.
