As part of our long-standing partnership, we will be dedicating much of our resources to the NHS. As a result some of the treatments are being suspended and as a result we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations.

I graduated from Aberbeen University Medical School in 1992 and then spent seven years in specialist surgical training at the world famous Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.
