Moorfields Eye Hospital is planning to provide additional eye care at a new site in Stratford from Spring 2023. It is proposed that this new hub will be on Stratford Broadway (Granta House, 15-19 Broadway, London E15 4BQ), close to Stratford’s shops, services and excellent transport links. Moorfields want to hear the public’s views on their proposal to move to Stratford by 25 November 2022 – see below for details of how to provide feedback.
This new hub would bring together in one place a range of eye services for the local community including glaucoma, medical retina and cataracts, a specialist pharmacy, diagnostics, face to face and surgical treatments. The significant increase in capacity would help reduce eye care waiting lists across north east London trusts, as well as being more convenient for the majority of patients, many of whom currently need to visit different sites (one of which is in north central London).
Bringing everything together in one central place enables more comprehensive support services. All the activity from two existing nearby sites, Mile End and the existing Stratford clinic at Sir Ludwig Guttmann would be transferred to the new Stratford hub. The existing site at Barking would become a centre offering diagnostic tests for eyes, jointly operated by Moorfields; Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals; and Barts Health. All face to face eye clinics provided at Barking would relocate to the new Stratford facility. More information can be found at www.moorfields.nhs.uk/site/moorfields-stratford
