Ophthalmology at Heatherwood Hospital

This facility, opened in 2022, provides a high-quality, efficient service for our patients undergoing cataract surgery.

This site has six operating theatres, 48 in-patient beds, 22 day-case procedure rooms or ‘pods’ and two endoscopy rooms, providing operations, diagnostics and outpatient care to both NHS and private patients across Berkshire, Hampshire, and Surrey.

Our cataract one-stop shop means that patients with low complexity cases will no longer need to wait on long waiting lists. Instead, you can receive your operation quickly and get back to living your life.

Upon referral, you’ll receive an appointment with a nurse, followed immediately by an appointment with one of our doctors. That means that within 30 minutes we’ll have all your pre-operation checks done and you can book in for the surgery.

On the day of your operation, you’ll arrive at the hospital and be checked in by our team before being taken to our operating theatre.
