What our patients say

  • Had cyst removed from the wrist. Removed in a timely fashion. Pre, operative and post all good. Nice hospital, staff friendly, consultants good. I'll return if I require other things.

  • My mother had a day procedure here and was incredibly well looked after by nurses Karisma and Nana. Both of them went above and beyond to provide such a kind level of care and are a credit to your hospital - please pass on our sincere thanks to them and we hope their outstanding work can be acknowledged!

  • Really nice people .a reasonable amount of parking although some of the overflow parking is on grass and not easy walking if you are unsteady on your feet . Nice waiting room .kind staff

  • This would be a massive review if I listed all the positives of my experience so to keep short and sweet, thank you Dr El Farra, Annette, Jennifer and the nurse who took me down and brought me biscuits. You’re all incredible

  • I had a cataract surgery done on 8th July. As soon as I got there the staff were amazing. I was nervous but didn’t have to be. They took me to theatre, was only down there 10 minutes. Didn’t feel a thing. Quick and painless. Was back home within the hr after surgery . Cannot recommend consultant ophthalmic surgeon Mr M Dogramaci enough . Thankyou x
