Our specialist team

The same consultant will assess and treat you. Our trained optometrist will carry out routine follow-ups but will refer you back to your consultant if at any stage they feel this is necessary. Right from your initial telephone enquiry, through to treatment and discharge the same dedicated team will look after you.

Our Consultant Ophthalmologists are supported by a highly trained nursing team to ensure that your visit is comfortable and relaxing. Our surgeons are on the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register and our hospital complies with national healthcare guidelines.
