Overview

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a leading provider of eye health services in the UK and a world-class centre of excellence for ophthalmic research and education.

We have a reputation, developed over two centuries, for providing the highest quality eye care, always at the forefront of the latest developments in ophthalmology. Our 2,000 staff are committed to sustaining and building on our pioneering history. 

Our main focus is the treatment and care of NHS patients with a wide range of eye problems, from common complaints to rare conditions that require treatment not available elsewhere in the UK. 

We treat people in several locations in and around London. This means that we can provide more first-class care and treatment in the community, closer to where people live and work.

Our unique patient case-mix and the number of people we treat mean that we can sub-divide our services into several specialist departments.  This allows our clinicians to develop expertise in particular ophthalmic sub-specialties.

With our partners at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, we are a national and international centre for research into eye conditions and treatments, leading one of the strongest and most extensive ophthalmic research programmes in the world. We are also a major force in teaching the eye specialists of the future.

We manage three commercial divisions: Moorfields Private, Moorfields Pharmaceuticals and Moorfields Eye Hospital United Arab Emirates. Proceeds from all of them provide vital funding for our NHS care, as do our charities, Moorfields Eye Charity and the Friends of Moorfields. 

Moorfields is registered without conditions with the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England.
