"Eye surgery"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

Recently had surgery under general anesthetic for detached retina and a one night stay on the wards. Impressive. Approachable and friendly surgeon. Reassuring operation room staff. Kind, chatty nurses who made you feel comfortable and safe. Good food and as many cups of tea as we wanted. Ward was very clean.Nothing was too much. Thank you so much.
