Consultation on the new Moorfields site

Consultation update and invitation to further discussions.

Latest news : 7 August 2019

Moorfields and its partners, the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Charity, are proposing to build a new centre bringing together excellent eye care, with ground-breaking research and education. The preferred location is a site that has become available at St Pancras Hospital, just north of King’s Cross and StPancras stations in central London.

The proposal, called Oriel, is the subject of a public consultation from 24 May to 16 September 2019. For more information, please visit

Let us know your views by 16 September 2019.  Continue reading 

This is the original message received from Moorfields in July:

As important members of the Moorfields community, you will know that our hospital at City Road has been at the forefront of providing the highest quality eye care for over a century.
The way we provide eye care now is very different but our surroundings have remained largely the same. We want to continue our legacy of providing the cutting-edge treatment and care you need, but there is very little space to expand and develop new services in our current hospital.
By 2026, we want to build a brand new centre on land that has become available at the St Pancras Hospital site, just north of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations. Our aim is to create a world-leading centre for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of eye disease by bringing together excellent eye care, ground breaking research and the world’s best education in ophthalmology – but we cannot do this alone.
A public consultation on our proposal is now open until 16 September 2019 and we want you to get involved. Whether you are a regular patient, a carer or a member of staff, we need you to tell us what you think of our plans and how they could affect you.
You can find out more about the proposal at and you can share your views by completing the survey available here. Alternatively, you can send an email to or phone the team on 020 7521 4684 to request these materials in a different format.
We look forward to hearing your views on this next stage in our development.
