Moorfields at Hoxton - diagnostic hub
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.
Moorfields at Hoxton is one of our diagnostic hubs. The diagnostic hubs take people through a series of rapid tests which are all completed within a 45 minute visit. Each patient’s results are then individually reviewed online by the consultants and their teams. Patients will receive a letter informing them of the outcome of their tests, while some will also be offered a virtual video or telephone appointment to discuss particular results. Patients will only be asked to attend a subsequent hospital visit if the consultant sees something requiring urgent or personal attention.
This format reduces the time each patient spends in clinic and the number of overall face to face attendances making the patient journey more efficient.
