“I chose The Horder Centre because an actor friend of mine, whom I see once a year, had just had an operation there and said it was absolutely brilliant.
All the staff, from the surgeon to the hall porter (apart from the fact he supported Spurs), were top drawer. I think it is the attention to detail that makes The Horder Centre special. My brother, who had a similar operation elsewhere, couldn’t believe it when I told him that a nurse escorted me to my car when I left.”
"It was 1992, I was a very frightened lady - I had a disastrous hip operation – in another hospital I must add – but The Horder Centre rescued me from a life on crutches. Mr. Gallannaugh, a truly wonderful surgeon, performed a hip revision operation and I am able to enjoy life to the full again."
“I couldn’t fault The Horder Centre. The care was excellent. When I had an operation in an NHS hospital 15 years ago, I was in a ward with around eight other people and didn’t sleep but I had my own room at The Horder. I was made to feel at home and everyone made me feel at ease."
Mr Lake was very clear in his explanation of what the operation would entail and we discussed the various options of different lenses so that I could choose what was best for me. I was a day patient both times and the care was really excellent from start to finish.
I don’t need to wear glasses now and can thoroughly recommend The McIndoe to anyone who has cataracts. The operations have really made a difference to my life.”
