Patients have to wait long for cataract surgery

Dr Foster, an online provider of health information, finds cataract patients in the St Albans hospital wait an average of 152 days, compared to a national average of 95 days. The number is a sharp increase in comparison to those in the Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

A spokesperson from West Herts Hospitals Trust said,

"Along with all Trusts in the United Kingdom, we are working towards achieving a total 126-day wait from GP referral to treatment for cataracts by the end of November, in line with the Government target."
