"Emergency operation on detached retina"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Ophthalmology

A Huge thank you to the team that came in for me on Sunday morning 9th October 2016 for an emergency operation for a detached Retina ! Not only do I pass out at blood tests I'm not good having an eye test I have to say everyone was fantastic right down to the tea person. I was terrified but what a team made me keep calm throughout I was totally shocked (and so was my wife ) that I didn't pass out thank you so much for saving my sight ! Fantastic team of people!
