I am a fan of the NHS.

Before taking an apprehensive 91 year old for cataract surgery I asked for prayer on social media as she was very fearful. To my surprise I received this tweet in response - from  Dec 19

'Hi Graham, please let Hazel know that we're wishing her the very best of luck for her operation. We're sure the team will take very good care of her, but if she (or you) have any questions for them, please do just ask - our clinicians are always happy to help in any way they can.'

On the day all went well though it seemed touch and go that she would sign the operation consent form but all went well and as we told her the anticipation was worse than the procedure which was painless. The hospital has arranged for district nurses to come in daily for the next two weeks and give the prescribed eye drops six times a day.

So well done Moorfields at Ealing Hospital.
