"The NHS as it should be."

About: Queen's Medical Centre

I first noticed that I had a problem with one of my eyes on Sunday afternoon. I went to my optician on Monday morning (I didn't even bother with trying to get a GP appointment). The optician referred me to my local hospital (only 30 miles away) and I was seen that afternoon. The local hospital referred me to Queens Medical centre where I saw a consultant Wednesday morning, the consultant operated on Thursday afternoon. and I am now on the road to recovery.
