A proposed new centre for eye care, research and education is a large and complex development.
A project of this scale requires years of planning, a major transition for patients and staff and a significant investment of public money.
We have had financial experts working over the past few years to ensure that this proposal is affordable and would not impact on the long-term financial position of Moorfields Eye Hospital.
To build a new centre to deliver world-leading eye care, education and research would cost the NHS around £344m which would come from:
- the sale of the City Road site
- donations to Moorfields Eye Charity and UCL
- central government funding
- funds from Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
