"Surgery for removal of a cataract."

About: Ilkeston Community Hospital

Anything else?

Although I live in Derby, I was given the option of having my surgery carried out in Ilkeston hospital, as the waiting time was likely to be less. I have nothing but praise for every aspect of my treatment, from the nursing staff, the surgeon, in fact, everyone involved, even the tea lady who kept us supplied with lovely cups of tea before and after the operation. Thank you to all of you, you give an exemplary service. When my other eye needs to be treated I will not hesitate to return.
