Moorfields Eye Centre at St George's Hospital

From January 2018, the Duke Elder ward at Moorfields Eye Centre at St George's Hospital will close to undergo a full refurbishment. This work will provide an improved, redesigned clinical environment for patients and staff.

The Duke Elder ward will close for a minimum of six to eight months to undergo this important work. During the closure, most services will relocate to Moorfields Eye Hospital at City Road and Spire St Anthony's Hospital, Cheam.
