"Very pleased but...."

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital

I was refered in january by my opticians, I had all the tests etc then in May I had my cataracts operation on my lazy (left eye) At Dewsbury hospital. I was somewhat suprised to be told I had been discharged, I asked when I would have my right eye operated on and was told I would have to be refered again ? Mid June and I receive letter from Pontefract infirmary asking me attend for outpatients visit for my Right eye, (less than two months ago this was done in Dewsbury) I don't live anywhere near Ponteract, So I cancel my appointment only to find out I'll be refered back to my optican. What a complete shambles.
