About: Sunderland Eye Infirmary

The Eye Infirmary has been treating my dad since his accident in 2010.

He has had operations and more recently 2 operations within 3 months which has caused him to stay in the hospital.

As well as having other medical conditions we have always had fabulous care and support from all the staff at the eye infirmary and when he has been an inpatient we have always had confidence in the care he will receive.

Nothing has ever been a problem for all the staff, always friendly, willing to chat and just show how much they care about their patients and families.

We have had numerous emergency appointments and always been seen in a reasonable amount of time as we have had to visit at different times of the day - non of the waiting time would be classes as excessive.

My dad has regular appointments with consultants any way at the infirmary and they are just the same - amazing .

The staff here are an absolute credit to the health service and we as a family cant thank them enough for everything they have done for my dad.

As much as you are a great team I hope we don't have to visit again so soon xx
