"The treatment I had at Ophthalamic department"

About: King George Hospital

Anything else?

1. I made an appointment to have my cataracts assessed lead time 2 weeks very efficient. I was seen by the Consultant ophthalmic surgeon who booked me in for the operation approximately 14 days after assessment for the eye No 1 2. My appointment was for 7.30am I arrived at 7.15am ( I recommend anybody going for the 1st time arrive at least 45 minute's before) the reception books in the operation on 1st come first serve. I had the pre op preparation carried out about 1 hour later, by 10.30am I was in the operating theatre 15 minutes later I was back in the ward had a nice cup of tea & cake they let me go one hour later. I was at home by 12.30. 3. The 2nd operation on the other eye went as smoothly as the 1st. I got there 45 minute's early and was at home by 11am. 4. The whole experience I found very efficient, spotlessly clean and the staff were vey helpful and pleasant. I was impressed especially at 7.30 in the morning!! Kind regards Philip Pell
