Have your say on plans to move Moorfields Eye Hospital to Kings Cross
A public consultation has been launched on plans to move Moorfields Eye Hospital to King's Cross.
The consultation runs from Friday 24 May to 16 September.
Under the plans, eye care services would move from the current hospital at City Road, along with the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Charity.
Moorfields and UCL would sell the land at City Road and reinvest sale proceeds in a multi-million pound development on land available at the site of St Pancras Hospital, just north of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations.
Camden Clinical Commissioning Group is running the public consultation in partnership with NHS England (specialised commissioning) and on behalf of all CCGs across England that commission Moorfields’ services.
Consultation responses will inform a decision in January 2020 on whether the proposed move is:
- In the interests of the health of our populations, locally and nationally
- In line with NHS long-term plans to improve health and care
- An effective use of public money
