Get on board with Oriel - the co-design stage

We’d like to invite you to get involved in the next stage of designing the future of eye care, research and education. Your views will help shape the interior design of the building as part of the journey for delivering the new centre for advancing eye health on the St Pancras Hospital site in Camden.

We’ll provide regular updates on how the design has progressed in response to feedback so far and we’ll be continuing our conversations with you about your ambitions for the new centre.

There’ll be a range of different ways to share your ideas and feedback including focus groups hosted online, one-to-one conversations, surveys and questionnaires. Engagement activities will be running during Spring and Summer 2021, with more information on how to join and ongoing updates to be posted on this page. If you would like to get involved in any of these engagement activities, send us an email by clicking the button below.
