I am writing to tell you about my recent experience at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead.

I was booked in to have a cataract operation in my left eye. Astonishingly I was in and out in three-and-a-half hours.

The consultant surgeon Mr Little and his wonderful team made me most welcome and treated me as if I was the only patient there. All the staff washed their hands with the cleaning gel almost every five minutes and certainly before and after they touched any of the dozen or so patients who were having their operations that day.

Everyone was a picture of charm, kindness and professionality. The nurses in the recovery room were so happy and relaxed that I thought I had woken up in a holiday camp.

They called me the next morning at 8am to ask how I was and if all was well.

What is this doom and gloom about the NHS?
