"Going to Mount Gould and Plymouth Eye Hospital"

About: Livewell South West Royal Eye Infirmary / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I come to Mount Gould for my feet appointments. I think it’s wonderful here, the staff are kind, and the toilets are nice. I’m always seen on time. The café is lovely – it’s great to have it on site, and the mobility shop on site is very useful. Also, the parking is very good.

I also go to the eye hospital – and think they do great work. However, the hospital really needs a new building like they have at Mount Gould. I find the eye hospital too busy and hectic. Also, there is always a long queue up to reception – and just not enough seating. If you’re blind, or have trouble seeing, you need someone with you – but the parking is terrible, so you have to drop off the person outside, and leave them to find their own way. All this would be solved if they had a new building.
