CHEC launches private cataract surgery service in Wales
CHEC has announced that it will now be offering private cataract surgery in Wales at its Bridgend treatment centre.
CHEC’s Bridgend facility opened in 2019 and has been serving the local community ever since to tackle the increasing number of patients requiring treatment for eye conditions such as cataracts. CHEC’s private offering in Wales will initially focus on providing cataract surgery to patients as well as other ophthalmology services, including consultations, diagnostic tests, and post-operative reviews.
The facility will provide patients with an alternative high-quality, affordable and efficient service for patients that feel they can no longer wait for NHS-funded treatment, with a competitive private treatment fee which includes all necessary treatment on the day of surgery, inclusive of monofocal lens replacement, medication and surgeon’s fees.
Jon Dore, COO, commented, “We are pleased to announce that we have started to offer private cataract treatment in Wales in order to support patients in the region with excellent patient care and high-quality treatment and aftercare.
“We look forward to continuing to expand our range of services in Wales and working in partnership with optometrists to meet the growing demand for cataract surgery by providing a more affordable and accessible service in the local community.”
The site is conveniently located by the M4 for easy access for residents across south Wales.
In 2022, CHEC opened six new centres across the UK, expanded its services into endoscopy, and launched its innovative patient app, which has been shortlisted for the Tomorrow’s Care Awards 2023. CHEC’s private offering in Wales is further evidence of the growing demand for CHEC’s excellent work.
