Emergency ophthalmology

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has reminded GPs in north central London that emergency ophthalmology services are available from all local units across the eight London STPs. The trust has provided a map and a spreadsheet of available services and contact details for all London Eye Casualty Services. Please use the A&E referral process put in place by Moorfields in response to COVID-19.

Cataract surgery 

Patients who are referred to the Royal Free Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital or Whittington Hospital sites for simple cataract surgery will all undergo their procedure at the Edgware Eye Surgery Hub (located in Edgware Community Hospital) but will continue to attend their local or preferred hospital for tests and outpatient appointments before and after having surgery.

Existing ophthalmology surgery services at North Middlesex University Hospital, Moorfields Eye Hospital sites in NCL (City Road campus, St Ann’s Hospital and Potters Bar) and relevant independent sector providers remain unchanged. Patients continue to be able to choose to be referred to any provider that has an NHS contract to provide the service they need.

See the Routine Ophthalmology: RFL service page for details of how to refer.
