Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of eye health services in the UK and a world-class centre of excellence for ophthalmic research and education.
With over 2,300 members of staff that are committed to sustaining and building on their pioneering legacy and ensuring they remain at the cutting edge of developments in ophthalmology.
Moorfields Eye Hospital provides a networked satellite model of care, out from their central London Eye Hospital, based on three geographical networks: Moorfields North, Moorfields South and Moorfields East. Within these geographical networks care is generally sub-divided into four different types of satellite service, ensuring a comprehensive range of eye care provision closer to patients’ home. They treat people over 30 sites in and around London, therefore, providing first-class care and treatment in the community, closer to where people live and work.
They deal with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions that require treatment not available elsewhere in the UK. As well as these members of staff also provide teaching and training for a wide range of eye health professionals, including clinicians from around the world who come to learn from their knowledge and experience.
