"Eye depart mane - cataract operation"

About: Ashford Hospital

My 84 year old mother recently had a cataract operation on a Saturday afternoon at Ashford hospital. Throughout the whole process she was treated with respect, care, dignity and with great professionalism by everyone who spoke to and treated her. The whole process, from comment by optician, to doctor's letter to hospital referral and finally to operation, took less than 3 months. Her sight is already improving, making a big difference to her life! So, from a very grateful and appreciative patient and family, a big thank you. Unsung heroes, all of you! P.s. Can't select 'Eye Department' on comment form, not an available choice.
