- Cataract Full Pathway provider
I offer Bupa customers standard cataract surgery on the Full Pathway package option at Nuffield Health Bournemouth 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.

Mr Kersey graduated from Cambridge University in 1994 and The Royal London Medical School in 1997. He completed his Registrar training in Cambridge and Norwich, before undertaking a world class specialist fellowship in paediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus in Vancouver, Canada.
He was appointed as a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital in February 2008. He then undertook further subspecialty training in neuro-ophthalmology at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, and now runs the neuro-ophthalmology service for Bournemouth and Poole in conjunction with a Consultant neurology colleague.
Since his appointment as a Consultant, Mr Kersey has undertaken extensive further training in advanced cataract and refractive surgery, including laser eye surgery.
Mr Kersey specialises in micro incision cataract surgery, including the use of multifocal and toric lens implants.

He is committed to the training of junior colleagues, studying for two years for a Diploma in Medical Education at Winchester University. He has trained many surgeons in both cataract and squint surgery in his NHS practice.
