About: Furness General Hospital

What I liked

My wife is undergoing treatment. She had a sudden onset of acute glaucoma. Her ailment was immediately identified in Casualty and she was referred to the Ophthalmic Department without delay. The Ophthalmic Department staff are the most professional healthcare people I have met. My wife's treatment from the start has been first rate. Her treatment continues and she is treated by all as if she is the most important business of the day. I have nothing but praise for the department. without their astute help and professionalism I fear the outcome might have been far worse - thank you.

What could be improved

Very little - if anything

Anything else?

An outstanding Ophthalmologic Department for which I remain extremely grateful.
