The new facility will partially launch in December 2023, with the opening of a ‘rapid access and urgent care clinic’ offering ‘same- and next-day appointments’ for patients with ‘urgent eye symptoms’. This includes damage from trauma, infection, dry eye, pain, redness, swelling, or sudden changes in vision.
The centre will also launch a number of specialist ophthalmology clinics in 2024.
All financial surplus generated by Moorfields Private in its partnership with Cleveland Clinic London will be reinvested into Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Andrew Robertson, Director of Private Care at Moorfields, added: “We are delighted to be a part of Cleveland Clinic London’s new outpatient centre, which gives us the chance to offer our world-leading eye care to patients closer to where they work.”
