Oriel is the exciting proposal to design, build and operate a new, purpose-built centre of excellence for eye care, research and education for Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalm.
It is a joint venture between Moorfields Eye Hospital, UCL and Moorfields Eye Charity. It is proposed for services at Moorfields Eye Hospital on City Road and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) on Bath Street to relocate to a new, integrated facility at a preferred site of St Pancras Hospital.
Oriel’s vision is to create an environment for innovation to flourish, inspiring improvements in people’s sight. The new facility aims to be flexible and modern, and could enable eye care, research and education to be brought together for the first time.
The preferred site for the new facility is on a two acre section of land at St Pancras Hospital. This site was chosen as it is within the North East London Sector, and is close to the excellent transport links of Kings Cross and St Pancras International.
In 2019, Camden CCG plan to lead a formal consultation on the proposal, so patients, residents, staff and members of the public will have an opportunity to have their say.
More information about this consultation will be made available in the coming months.
