Care was good when I got it. I counted nine people sat on computers and two giving care. I'm sure they are all doing what is necessary but the perception is they are all sat at computers which is not what hospitals are about. The X-ray was quick. I'm sure that the complaint you get all the time is that everything takes too long and in my view that complaint is justified. My mother left the health service after 40 years when she was no longer required to be a nurse, rather a pen pusher.
So, the cataract operation itself was totally pain-free, nothing to fear. And all of the staff were absolutely magnificent. Marie Lou (sorry about the spelling) and the exceedingly young grandmother that held my hand throughout the whole procedure perhaps deserve a special mention for making me feel so at ease. Very special people.
Everything was good about my care, All nurses were very attentive to my needs, nothing was to much trouble. When beds are full could do with more staff they have to spear themselves very thin
