Who we are

At SpaMedica, our focus is on patient care, safety and satisfaction. As the UK’s largest provider of NHS cataract surgery, we’re experts at what we do, and that’s evidenced in the five-star feedback we receive from our patients and the ratings our hospitals receive from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England.  

So, what makes us who we are?

Our friendly, experienced, and approachable teams 

We know that having cataract surgery (or any type of eye surgery) can be daunting – especially if it’s your first time – which is why we’re always on hand to answer any questions you have and support you every step of the way. We pride ourselves on providing patient care with a personal touch, so you’ll always be given a warm welcome and lots of reassurance, with plenty of time for a chat! When the day of your procedure arrives, we’ll help to put you at ease and make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. After treatment, lots of our patients say they don’t know what they were worried about in the first place! 

But don’t just take our word for it – why not watch some of our patient interviews or read some of our case studies, where our patients talk about their experiences of cataract surgery.

Our short waiting times 

SpaMedica’s average referral to treatment time for cataract surgery is just four weeks, so you’ll be back to your old self before you know it! Our waiting times are typically much shorter than what you would expect from your local NHS hospital(s).

Our excellent outcomes and low complication rates 

We want our patients to get back to doing the hobbies and activities they love as quickly as possible, which is why we’re always thrilled when our patients say their quality of life improved significantly after cataract surgery.  

Over 97% of our patients regain driving-standard vision after cataract surgery and SpaMedica’s complication rates are less than 0.5% – amongst the lowest in the country! All of our hospitals that have been inspected by the CQC to date have been rated as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding,’ so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.

Sign reading SpaMedica Patient Rating 5 stars


Excellent facility  - I had my cataract surgery performed at SpaMedica Epsom. From the initial assessment to the operation and post op examination I was treated with kindness, care and consideration. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, at every level. Everything was fully explained regarding the procedure which made the whole experience completely stress free. I would strongly recommend SpaMedica Epsom to anyone awaiting cataract surgery, you could not be in better hands. Thank you so much.
