New Cataract Service at Probus Surgical Centre!
We are pleased to announce that Mr Kumar, a well-known local Consultant Ophthalmic surgeon has joined the team at Probus Surgical Centre. The first clinics are due to started in August 2012 and we performed our first cataract operations on August 24th.
Patients are able to choose Probus Surgical Centre when their referrals are processed through the Referral Management Service for their cataract operations. The Centre has acquired state of the art equipment which facilitates the latest micro-incision technique in cataract surgery. This means faster healing and fewer post-operative restrictions. We hope that this new service will be popular and meet the needs of the people in Cornwall.
Some of the clinics are set up as one-stop. This means that your operation will be carried out on the same day if appropriate you and Mr Kumar believe it to be in your best interest.
We recently had the pleasure of having Holly Day from Pirate FM visit us with a big box of cakes. During her visit Holly met with myself – Mike, Guy Lin, Angela Le Ruez and Kim Blamey.
Holly briefly interviewed us and asked us why Probus was so good. She got the answer that whilst we operate with high quality and clinical excellence, much like other providers do, we do it with a smile. Every patient is treated as special and based on our patient satisfaction surveys, people, amazingly, seem to actually enjoy their experience in the operating theatre.
Commencing on July 9th is an advertising campaign designed to bring the Probus Surgical Centre to the attention of the people of Cornwall. This is a truly Cornish NHS service which is so good at what it does that it has received National recognition and we believe that our Cornish community should know about that. The advertisement will also introduce our new web site which we hope everyone will find interesting and informative.
This advertising campaign will run for three months and we were very lucky that we were able to take advantage of Pirate’s special offer of 60% discount making our advertising campaign an economical exercise.
