SpaMedica is proud to work alongside the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) on their National Ophthalmology Database (NOD) Audit, sharing our results and outcomes.
We’re delighted to announce that the latest Audit (2020) has found that 99.5% of our patients encounter no cataract surgery complications.
We’re the only independent eye hospital group to provide cataract surgery data to the RCOphth NOD Audit and our data is collated, along with data from 65% of the NHS Trusts in England and Wales.
The audit also shows that we achieve some of the best outcomes from cataract surgery out of the largest providers in the UK, so when you visit a SpaMedica eye hospital, you can be reassured that you’ll receive excellent service and a warm welcome.
SpaMedica’s Medical Director, Alex Silvester, commented:
“As the UK’s largest provider of NHS cataract surgery, we’re extremely happy to see the results of this year’s RCOphth NOD Audit highlight the very high quality of service we provide and outstanding outcomes we achieve at SpaMedica.
“We take pride in delivering these standards across all our hospitals and our teams are committed to providing outstanding levels of service for our patients.
“Most NHS Trusts take part in this annual audit and we’re proud to share our data with the NOD to help analyse current results and help to drive ophthalmic standards to an excellent level.”
The audit enables cataract surgery providers to benchmark the performance of their surgeons against others across the country. This gives SpaMedica a good indicator of the high-quality surgery we’re performing.
