I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Circle Nottingham, Nottingham Woodthorpe Hospital, Spire Nottingham 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.
