Final versions of the summary of consultation findings and an integrated health inequalities and equality impact assessment (IIA) of the proposal have been published.

The documents are available on the Consultation documents page.

The consultation, which ran between 24 May and 16 September 2019, gave patients, staff and the general public the opportunity to comment on the proposal to create a new centre for eye care, research and education in the St Pancras area.

We received around 4,600 contributions during the consultation through various ways including discussion groups, emails, phone calls and the consultation survey.

A draft version of the consultation findings report was published at the end of October 2019 which gave people the opportunity to review the feedback and feed in any comments that they think may have been missed. This feedback has been incorporated into the final version of the report.

The independent analysis of the survey results tell us that 73% of respondents agree that a new centre is needed and 73% agree with St Pancras as the preferred location.
