Mr Michael Wheeler

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,
After my wife having NHS cateract operations at a private eye hospital in Guildford Surrey all went well with the first eye but then the second eye took three months of operations after a failed operation she had to under go 2 more operations and a lot of aftercare visits.
My main questions are.
1) How much is spent on private cateract operations within the NHS and the cost of aftercare.
2) The percentage of these operations that are not successful first time and the cost to the NHS

Yours faithfully,
Michael Wheeler
