"Excellent experience for cataract operations"

About: Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre

I have now had two cataract operations at Shepton Mallet and can only give the highest praise for all the staff involved - from the first appointment when I was given excellent information regarding the procedure through to the pre-op treatment when the nurse was cheerful, efficient and very friendly to the actual operations which were swift and painless, to the after op discussion where instructions for care were clear and precise.

I would highly recommend Shepton Mallet for efficient, kind and exceptional care
