Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

  • The thought of cataract surgery under local anaesthetic was terrifying me. Several friends had been to the Shepton Mallet Treatment Centre so I opted for it. I fell on my feet. I could not have had better treatment in such a reassuring and kind atmosphere anywhere. Everyone was so understanding and I will always owe thanks to my consultant surgeon for offering me the choice of the multifocal lens as I was a suitable patient – after 55 years I no longer have to wear glasses. I find medical establishments challenging to say the least but this truly was an excellent experience. Thank you.

  • I had an operation for Dupuytrens carried out by Mr Ferrer and have to congratulate you for the wonderful treatment I have received throughout the day. I cannot praise the staff highly enough, from the reception staff, all the nurses who dealt with me, the Consultant Anaesthetist and finally Mr Ferrer the surgeon. I was kept fully informed every step of the way by everybody involved. I could not have received better treatment from anywhere of that I am sure. I have been praising your facility to all my friends and colleagues ever since.

  • I cannot fault any of the nurses or the consultant. They were all wonderful and after being home from the operation, I even had a phone call from one of the nurses asking how I was. Great service, Thank you!
