Patient Experience (cataract surgery)
I arrived at Tetbury Hospital just before 1pm and found plenty of free parking on site. I was booked in for Day Surgery - an ophthalmic procedure. My wife joined me as my designated driver for my journey home. I was pleasantly surprised by the reception and treatment received in getting me ready for the minor operation. My medical history was taken by Maxine, one of several nurses, who were there to calm and care for six patients in the afternoon. A very good experience to this point - now the operation! Throughout the operation procedure everyone was very considerate and explained full exactly what was happening. Everything seemed to go well. Afterwards I received a welcome cup of tea and biscuit. I would also like to add that the hospital and toilet facilities were exceptionally clean.
Thank you for your efficient expertise & putting me at my ease. (Iron clinic patient, Dec 19)
I attended the hospital today with a family member with a medical problem. The treatment was superb and the staff totally helpful. I cannot praise them too much. Friendly, helpful and appropriate management. Well done Tetbury Hospital! (Dec 2019)
Friendly and relaxed place to be. Extremely caring staff (Google review, Dec 2019)
Dr Murdoch was very friendly, professional and put us at ease. He even recommended a lovely place for lunch before returning home. Mum initially felt amazing, then a bit of a drop, it's levelled off now and she's managing much better. If we need to use your service again I won't hesitate to contact you, it was effortless.

I was apprehensive and nervous about the treatment but needn’t have been. Dr Murdoch was extremely professional, communicative and reassuring. The treatment itself was painless and stress-free and I felt well looked after throughout. (Iron clinic patient, Nov 19)

It's ok. Nice staff (Google review, Nov 2019)
I was very pleased to find an Iron Clinic in Gloucestershire. The process was very simple and efficient from booking the first consultation to the resulting iron infusion. The consultation was very informative and each step of the infusion was explained so I knew what to expect. Within a few days I was waking with a clear head, no longer feeling I still needed more sleep, my concentration has improved and I am not feeling fatigued so quickly while taking part in strenuous exercise classes. Could not be happier with the whole experience.(Iron clinic patient, Nov 19)
Everything, the staff all outstanding, so helpful cheerful and supportive, reassuring. Thank you amazing experience!😊

Within 2 weeks of having the iv infusion my general energy levels were drastically improved and I was deadlifting an extra 20kg in the gym. (Iron clinic patient, Oct 19)

Awesome service, got seen very quickly and nurse was great with my child (Google review, Sept 2019)
I just have to say how wonderful Annie was in minor injuries earlier this week – she really did everything she could and more than she should. I was even able to have my first blood test because of her! (MIU patient, July 2019)
Patient Experience (cataract surgery)
Facing the risks: The modern method for replacing a lens is very safe but even a very low probability of failure implies that it could go wrong and it can be worrying trying to decide whether one should take the risk or not. People react differently to life threatening situations. Some put their fingers in their ears and hum loudly, others go through agonies of imaginary disasters. My opinion is that it is important to pay attention to the consequences of not having the operation. True there was a low probability that something unusual might happen in the operation in which case I might lose the sight of one eye. On the other hand there was a one hundred percent guarantee that quite soon I was going to have to give up driving and that I would be living in an increasingly dull restricted visual world. I had both a cousin and an uncle who lived most of their lives with only one eye. I even knew an RAF pilot who was flying jets with only one eye. It looked like, at the very worst, one good eye versus two deteriorating bad ones. Put this way the operation seemed a good deal so I was very happy to go ahead.
The Operation: I know the signs of a good team, unhurried, thorough, cheerful staff who obviously knew just what they were doing. An atmosphere of relaxed confident alertness. My only worry was whether I was going to be able to keep still. My ancient legs are prone to excruciating cramp, not the sort of thing I would be able to keep quiet about. However everyone was very reassuring and in the end my problem was actually trying to stay awake. The operation bit takes only a quarter of an hour. There was no pain or discomfort; much less fiddle faddle than having a tooth filled.
The Aftermath: My eye hurt a little at first but nothing that a couple of paracetamol couldn't cope with. I had a slight fright the first night when I woke and found I could see nothing out of my new eye. I had some uncomfortable thoughts about something having gone wrong but in the morning it was already clearing and by the evening I could see quite well out of it, and the colours! The comparison between the old and the new was startling. I couldn't wait to see what it was going to be like with two new eyes! A month later I found out. Absolutely amazing! (AJR Doyle, July 2019)
Excellent local hospital with an impressive range of clinics and services. Much nicer and friendlier than impetsonal big hospitals. The staff actually care! (Google review, May 2019)
I received the most care and attention I could have wished for at Tetbury Hospital. I can now see so much better than before. I was pleased to go to Tetbury Hospital as I was initially told I had to go to Cheltenham, which is a lot more difficult. Thank you again for all the care I received. (Susan Spandler, May 2019)
Herewith my opinion:
Staff - Very friendly, professional and approachable.
Building - The building was immaculate, welcoming and easily one of the best hospitals I have been in apart from RAF Hospitals. Cottage Hospitals out smart any of the larger hospitals which are impersonal and daunting. I was disappointed when Malmesbury Hospital was closed. My friends had their three child
