"Excellent and fast treatment"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I suffered an "acute glaucoma attack" in my right eye in September last and could hardly see with that eye. Lincoln County Hospital A&E saw me quickly and referred me to the hospital's eye clinic. I was offered corrective laser surgery there and then; the treatment was quick, painless and saved the sight in my right eye. I was treated with professionalism, efficiency, compassion and urgency by the nurses and by ophthalmologist, Doctor Hassim. The words "thank you" are completely inadequate to express my gratitude towards the hospital's staff. I thank God they were there for me at that critical time in my life.
