"Cataract Operation"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

I had to have a cataract in my right eye removed and was scheduled for this to be done on 29/01/2016.Having not been in hospital before I was a little nervous. I arrived as requested at 8 and was signed in and made welcome by the staff who made me feel really at ease as did pre check with Doctor. I was taken into surgery around 11. Back in waiting room at 11:30 where I was given tea and biscuits and all post care orodeures fully explained.

All the nurses and Doctors were excellent than you
