"Outstanding (eye department)"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I don't know where to start! From my first visit to the eye dept.. Last year Until 2 ops later I come away everytime with nothing but praise for every member of staff I have had contact with! The care is on another level! The staff are worth their weight in gold all of them ! and we truly have a hospital to be proud of! I have felt nothing but confident and safe in their expert hands! I've felt very able to speak to all levels of staff ... Nothing is too much trouble for them ! There just amazing I truly have no words to describe their worth! I might of waited 90 mins for my appointment today but I'd wait 9 hours without complaint for that level of care! Outstanding ! Today I'm a very happy tearful woman Dr you said you would do your best ... I honestly can't put into words how I feel right now nor thank you enough for what I'm looking at today! Bless you all !
