"My First Injection"

About: Sussex Eye Hospital

I went to the Eye Hospital yesterday for my first injection for diagnosed macular degeneration, and was nervous to say the least.

I was seen by a nurse initally who tested my eyes whilst looking at the familiar lettered chart. The nurse wore a medal and I asked what it stood for, they said they had worked at Moorfields eye hospital for 10 yearsand was awarded it for brilliant service (my words not theirs).

I thought what a good start and I was right as all my dealings with every member of staff there after was superb, kind and friendly.

I will be having further treatment over the coming months and feel confident that I shall be getting the best care.

Thankyou NHS.
