"Care received at the Ophthalmology Dept. at..."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the doctors, nurses and staff working in the Ophthalmology Department where I received excellent care during the first couple of weeks in February 2015 for an eye abrasion. I was in real pain when I visited the Department and could not look at any light. One of the nurses immediately offered me a dark room where I could wait for my appointment as it would be easier on my eye, which I was really grateful for. Throughout my trips to visit the Ophthalmology Department I was always treated with the utmost care and dignity by all of the nurses and staff, who always had a smile and a kind word for you no matter how busy they were, (and they were always working extremely hard). The care I received from all staff was really excellent, and my eye started to feel better within a week and is now fully recovered. I would highly recommend this Department to others should you need care and treatment for your eyes. Thank you all very much for your care and help and keep smiling!
