I offer the Full Pathway cataract surgery package for Bupa customers ...more
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Springfield Hospital .
This package includes your appointments before and after surgery, as well as your surgery and mono-focal lenses. It means you won’t use up your out-patient benefit or receive any additional bills from your surgeon (or anaesthetist, if you need one) for eligible treatment.
Please call the Bupa Eye Care team to find out more about and to pre-authorise your treatment on 0345 600 7267.
I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist in Mid Essex Hospitals. I have different roles in the Department and I am also involved in the day to day running of the Eye Unit in Mid Essex in the form of Clinical Leader of the Eye Department. I divide my clinical work between adult and paediatric ophthalmology and have a well-established practice of each type covering various kinds of eye conditions. I do not pretend to be expert in all aspects of ophthalmology and where I am not capable of delivering a particular service, I am very happy to guide my patients to services that provide them with the best possible treatment. Having said that, as a Registrar, I have worked in every sub-speciality in Oxford rotation and have gained my certificate of completion of training from the General Medical Council of the UK in 2010. I had further complementary fellowship training at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital in paediatric ophthalmology.
