Oriel is our proposal to create a new, purpose-built centre of excellence for eye care, research and education. It is a joint venture between Moorfields Eye Hospital, UCL and Moorfields Eye Charity. If approved, together we propose to relocate all services from Moorfields Eye Hospital on City Road and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) on Bath Street, to this new, integrated centre.
This proposal is subject to a public consultation which runs from 24 May to 16 September 2019. The proposed new facility would be flexible and modern, enabling us to bring together eye care, research and education for the first time, while focusing on patients and attracting and retaining the best ophthalmic scientists, educators and clinicians. The new centre would house Moorfields Eye Hospital, the IoO and Moorfields Eye Charity, bringing together clinical care, research and education expertise in one flexible, fully integrated facility. Our vision is to create an environment for innovation to flourish, inspiring improvements in people’s sight. Find out more details behind Oriel and why we need it by using the links below.
Our partnership shares a vision for our community to be happier, healthier and to live longer in good health.
