Moorfields Community Eye Clinic at Purley War Memorial Hospital

Due to the increasing numbers of patients being admitted to hospitals across London, the NHS and Moorfields are facing significant challenges. To help protect our patients and our services, we are moving patient appointments to telephone and video consultations. 

We will continue to see those patients considered to be most at risk in person in clinic. If you’ve already been asked to come in, please attend your appointment as scheduled. Please do not come to Moorfields unless we have asked you to do so. We will contact patients as soon as possible to organise a telephone or video consultation.

For more information on these changes, and for details on urgent and emergency care, please visit our Coronavirus page on our website. Patients can access this page using the ‘Coronavirus’ link below.
