Comments from patients included: “The nurses were lovely and couldn’t do enough for you; Care and treatment was brilliant; The unit is clean and modern; Could not have been better; The care was very good and everything was explained very clearly; I found every aspect of the clinic and staff excellent and would not hesitate to recommend it; I felt the staff treated me as a person which some other hospitals don't seem to be able to do; Excellent care, kept informed at all times.”

General Manager, Jane Higgins commented:

“Over the last year the Centre has become even more popular with patients. I am pleased that this survey demonstrates we have been able to maintain the quality of patient care at the same time as increasing our work load. Much of this increase has been as a result of the very popular cataract service, which we have been providing since April.”

The Will Adams NHS Treatment Centre is commissioned by NHS Medway to provide general surgery, endoscopy, urology, orthopaedics and cataracts services for people in Medway, improving choice for local people.
