Praise for NHS.

In an era when so many heap criticism on the NHS, it gives me great pleasure to express my deep gratitude to the medical team at Axminster Hospital where I underwent a cataract operation last week.

My treatment was exemplary in every respect, and I came away full of admiration for the team’s professionalism and skill.

An operation, no matter how minor, can be very stressful for some people of a nervous nature.... and it was so heartening to realise that this was fully recognised at Axminster Hospital where the medical staff is clearly as conscious of patients’ mental condition as they are of their physical problem.

All of us about to have cataracts removed received great kindness and understanding and were put at ease.

Thank you, Axminster Hospital.
