Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic

Our new Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic offers same and next day appointments with world renowned Moorfields Private consultants.

This service offers fast access to diagnosis and treatment for urgent eye problems, such as an unexplained sudden change in your vision, trauma or a suspected infection, or eye discomfort such as dry eye, pain, redness or swelling.

Please note, this service is for adults only and urgent paediatric cases should be directed to a specialist paediatric consultant or to Moorfields NHS Foundation Trust’s A&E service. Patients with diagnosed conditions including retinal detachments/tears should book their appointments with the specialist consultants.

  • Appointments are held at Moorfields Private Outpatient Clinic and are available:

    Monday to Friday 2pm – 6pm.

  • Initially you will be assessed by a nurse who will check your vision.

    After examining you and depending on your history, the consultant may request further tests that could be carried out by the nursing team at your appointment.

    You will then be provided with a diagnosis, treatment recommendations and prescriptions as needed. The consultant will agree an appropriate follow up care with you.

  • The appointment cost is £250 payable at your visit. It includes the initial visual assessment and your consultation.

    Any further tests, treatments or prescriptions will incur an additional cost. This will be discussed and agreed with you at your appointment.

  • Please call 0800 328 3421 to book your appointment at the Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic. We will also be happy to answer any questions about your visit.
