I attended Spire for surgery on cataracts under NHS.
The referral letter from the optician was faxed through on Tuesday afternoon. By the following Friday, 3 days later, I had been consulted about where I would like to be treated and received an appointment letter to see the Consultant Eye Surgeon 3 weeks later. I was seriously impressed by this administrative efficiency. By the end of that presurgical appointment, I was confident that I had the best surgeon & location and the operation was scheduled for 5 weeks later.
Surgery was performed last Sunday. What an amazing experience! And all thanks to the wonderful anaesthetist, the brilliant surgeon and the excellent nursing & theatre staff. I couldn't have been operated on, looked after or cared for better. The quality of my vision has been hugely improved by this first, essentially painless (for me), operation.
