"Day Case Patient - Cataract Removal"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Three days ago, I had a cataract removed from my left eye on the Day-Case Unit. As he had performed the right eye cataract removal nine months earlier, I had no fear whatsoever and was very grateful to have no pain throughout the operation. I would highly recommend this treatment at The Kingsmill Hospital and give encouragement to any patients on the waiting list to be assured they are in the hands of a dedicated, professional, and friendly Staff. From the minute you arrive you are kept informed of the whole procedure, by a team of very caring health workers who listen to you and answer any queries you might have. Kingsmill Hospital is like a small village, looking after so many concerns, and it never ceases to amaze me,how they manage to treat every patient so 'individually and with such care and warmth. Even a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits are on hand right at the appropriate time.in the Day-Case Unit. The cataract Op. itself takes only about half an hour, but allow a couple of hours for the before- and- after procedures and paperwork- which is equally as important. A Huge Thank You to all of the Kingsmill Doctors Surgeons and Staff (especially Ophthalmology Dept. in my case) and wishing you continued success in future patient -care programmes.
