"Cataract Surgery"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I went to Macclesfield District General Hospital in November 2008 and January 2009 for cataract surgery to both eyes. The operation took place on separate occasions. The nurses on the ward of the day care were considerate of my needs and allayed all my fears and anxieties. Mr Hubbard and Mr Quay the eye surgeons and their teams put me completely at ease throughout the operations. Not forgetting the doctor and staff at the outpatients clinic for their care on appointments and punctuality and consideration of the patient. With grateful thanks to all.
