I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Nuffield Health Bristol Hospital-The Chesterfield .
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.
Mr Rafik Girgis is an experienced Consultant Ophthalmologist, specialising in cataract surgery and general ophthalmology. He trained at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, where his training included two fellowships in cataract and primary care, before working there for a year as a Consultant.
Between April 2011 and November 2017, Mr Girgis provided the Primary Care Service at Bristol Eye Hospital. He is an expert in the field of premium lenses, and although he has now left NHS practice, he is more than happy to offer consultations to NHS patients at his private clinics.
