A public consultation on a proposed move of Moorfields Eye Hospital's City Road services has launched.
The iconic Moorfields Eye Hospital is proposing to move after more than 120 years of treating people from its main hospital at City Road in Islington.
The proposal is to build a brand new centre on land that has become available at the current St Pancras Hospital site, just north of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations. Once the new facility is up and running, all of the services at the current City Road hospital, the Richard Desmond Children’s Eye Centre and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology would move into the new building. If the move were approved by January 2020, construction could begin in 2022 and the new centre could be open by 2026.
