Hello Ed
What name did his partner give you.
My hospital appointment for this week was cancelled.

Thanks for reply Ed.I think the last post he made was around the 20th December,no mention of any illness.Did anyone on the forum know him well enough for him to inform them?
Thoughts with you too Gerald.

Hi everyone, new member here.  I was conceived in Churchill Road, Bordesley Green and moved whilst still very young with my parents, older brother and younger sister whilst still young to Lapley Grove in Lea Hall and was in number 40.  I immediately noticed a post by member Susie2shoes who also happened to have lived in the very same maisonettes where I lived and am so happy to know that someone else in the world other than my own family remember the maisonettes.  I'm struggling to read and type at this moment in time due to rapidly progressing cataracts which has rendered me blind in my left eye and extremely difficult to see properly in my right so pardon any typos that may occur.

I had a Cataract problem last year. After about 3 or 4 months I did get an NHS appointment. In between times my opticians [Vision Express] asked if I would be prepared to go 'Private' but thro the NHS. And they arranged for me to have the Cataract Op with Spa Medica. It did not cost me a penny and and it was all done and dusted within a month. I can't tell you the difference it made to my sight. Everything was sharper and brighter. You will need your Optician to recommend you to Spa Media and your GP will have to endorse your treatment.
I cannot recommend Spa Medica enough they are excellent. They have around 20 clinics in the UK. I went to the one at Apex House Calthorpe Rd Five Ways in Birmingham. I would suggest if you do use Spa Medica go by Taxi parking can be difficult around 5 ways but there is a Car Park on Ladywood Middleway not far away and 5 Ways Railway Station is no more than a 5 or 10 minute walk away
