About Moorfields at St Bartholomew's Hospital


Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has a very close working relationship with St Bartholomew’s Hospital (St Barts) who specialise in oncology.

To ensure we deliver the best and most comprehensive service to our patients we occasionally work within other hospital locations.

You may have received an appointment or had a procedure booked at St Barts as part of this partnership. Please note there is no Moorfields walk-in clinic operating at St Barts.

If you have any questions please refer to the contact details at the top of your letter. Alternatively contact a member of our oncology team who will be happy to be of assistance.
