In March, we launched our emergency coronavirus appeal, so we could support our NHS staff and patients at Moorfields Eye Hospital when they needed it the most. Thanks to your generous donations, we’ve been able to show staff our appreciation for their hard work over the last few months.

With appointments cancelled or delayed and new protective measures in place, many Moorfields’ patients have faced disruptions to their eye care. Along with Moorfields Eye Hospital, we’ve been doing all we can to support patients and ensure that people can still receive the critical eye care they need.

Staff at Moorfields Eye Hospital have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic too. Over 150 of them selflessly volunteered to work in different front line hospitals across London, helping to save the lives of those with coronavirus. Those staff who stayed at Moorfields faced new challenges whilst trying to deliver emergency eye care to patients in critical need. 

Through your generous donations to our appeal (and to NHS Charities Together), we’ve been able to support Moorfields staff and show them all our appreciation for the care they provide.

raised so far (including grants from NHS Charities Together)

2,528

donations to our emergency coronavirus appeal

Thanks to the incredible amount raised we have been able to give a token of appreciation to our hard working staff. Not only has every staff member received a gift voucher to treat themselves but we have also sent them lunch vouchers on a weekly basis. 

As you can see in the photo above, our team at Northwick Park wanted to show their gratitude to all those have donated so far.

I have received my voucher - thank you so much! The last three months have been extremely challenging for us all, it’s so lovely to have this recognised. I will buy myself something that will bring me lasting joy and that will remind me of this time with warmth and positivity.

We are working closely with Moorfields as we move into the recovery phase to ensure that we, with your generous support, are doing all we can to help Moorfields continue to discover, develop and deliver the best eye care.
