The recent coronavirus outbreak has put the NHS under huge strain. At a stressful and challenging time, NHS staff worked tirelessly around the clock and provided quality care to people in critical need.

In response to this crisis, we’ve supported both our patients and our amazing staff at Moorfields Eye Hospital and will continue to support them where it’s needed most, now and into the future as routine services continue to be reintroduced. But we still need your help to ensure we are able to make a difference.

How Moorfields has been helping

Almost 200 Moorfields staff volunteered to help the NHS with the demands of treating patients with COVID-19 at other NHS hospitals across London.

At the height of the crisis, Moorfields deferred all non-urgent treatment until further notice but expanded its urgent and emergency eye care provision across London. They are also using video consulting to continue supporting our patients to receive care during COVID-19.

How you can help

We have had a great response so far and are truly grateful for the generosity of our supporters. We are asking you to donate today, so we can continue to support Moorfields and its patients where it’s needed most. 

Your donation could help to support both staff and patients through and beyond the coronavirus crisis and supporting our patients whilst they adjust to the aftermath of the crisis, and potential longer term impact.

And finally, we need your support to continue providing world class eye care to hundreds of thousands of people through continuing our investment in vital research into saving sight and developing and educating the practitioners of the future.

We will do everything we can to support our NHS but we still need your help in order to make that happen. Please give as generously as you possibly can.

Thank you

We wish all our supporters well and hope that you and your families remain in good health during this unprecedented time. 

Please follow NHS and government guidance to keep yourself and others safe.
