"Cataract surgery - NHS at Nuffield"

About: Nuffield Health, Shrewsbury Hospital

Treatment was very good.

However I arrived with others at 8.30 a.m. and had the operation at 11.a.m, so did not leave hospital until 11.30 a.m. (Includes 15 minutes rest after Op.)

At least one person arriving after me went in ahead of me for the operation.

I felt the operating list could have been better arranged.
