My mum’s eyes were very red and sore and we were worried her sight was deteriorating. She was due to attend an appointment in a couple of months but we were concerned she needed to be seen quicker, but also appreciated that during Covid this may not be possible.
We are fortunate that we were able to consider private care, Moorfields has an excellent reputation - the NHS Trust is well-known - and so to be able to be under the care of consultants in the Private Hospital who also work at the NHS Trust was really reassuring to us.
We were put in contact straight away with a consultant who specialises in the condition my mum has, and within a week, we had an appointment at Moorfields Private.
Mum had been anxious about going into hospital during the pandemic, but we were reassured by the hospital of the safety measures in place to help protect us. We were really impressed when we arrived. Our temperatures were checked and we were given masks to wear. We were so well taken care of, and the consultant was so thorough and reassuring with mum. She left feeling more at ease and feeling like she had a plan for her eye health. We were booked in for an MRI a week later and now have some options to consider to help with managing her eye condition.
I would highly recommend Moorfields Private. The consultants are world-class, and we left feeling as though we were getting the best care.
