Workshops to explore key themes emerging in Moorfields consultation

Over 1,500 responses have been received so far on the consultation to move Moorfields Eye Hospital to a new purpose built site near St Pancras and King’s Cross. 

The consultation continues until 16 September, with the organisers, Camden CCG, NHS London Specialised Commissioning and Moorfields Eye Hospital, keen to hear the views of voluntary and community organisations and Healthwatches on the proposals.

Feedback can be submitted via post, email or completing an online survey, see below for contact details.

The key themes that have emerged from the consultation so far are that:

  • Accessibility in terms of getting to the proposed new centre and its interior design are often the first point raised in discussions
  • The majority respondents rated high quality clinical expertise as ‘very important’
  • There is clear support for the proposed move

To respond to the feedback received to date to the consultation team is setting up a series or themed workshops on

  • Accessibility – getting around the proposed new centre, Tuesday 17th September 
  • Managing the transition, Thursday 19th September
  • Accessibility – getting to the proposed new site, Thursday 3rd October
