Thumbs-up for Moorfields!

MF1dWe hear good things about the Moorfields at Northwick Park Hospital.
Users are pleased with the improved facilities and environment at the refurbished Eye Centre which is a district hub of the Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS foundation Trust.
MF2dThe centre brings expert eye care closer to patients’ homes and provides outpatient and diagnostic care for a wide range of eye conditions, as well as more complex eye surgery.
The hospital informs that the centre now provides some sub-speciality clinics and surgical procedures previously only available at the Moorfields in central London. Operating theatres are now open five days per week.
The recent improvements include “extending the roles of nurses and opticians to deliver injections for age-related macular degeneration and post-operative cataract care and nurse led clinics in glaucoma”, said Moorfields.
The visiting patients spoke to us say that the waiting areas are well organised and are pleasant. Displayed information like the number of doctors, nurses, patients on the day and the waiting time (mostly met), is helpful.
Health and safety information includes waste segregation charts as well as the infection, prevention and control which outlines the cleaning schedule and alerts about the areas where contaminations could take place.
A typical comment by the visitors that “people here are friendly and helpful”, summarises good staff attitudes at the centre.
