"NHS at its best"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Anything else?

On Sunday I went to the optician who saw something in my eye. He faxed a message to my GP. On Monday morning at 9 am my GP phoned to ask more details and to tell me he was referring me the JR eye hospital. By 9.30 am (the same day!) I received a call from the eye hospital asking me to come in within the hour. By 13.00 on that day I had been seen by a consultant, treated and discharged! This was all on the same day! Awesome service! NHS at its best. At all times communication was excellent. I can not believe how efficient and professional the service at the JR is. Thank you.
