Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic at Moorfields Private

22 September 2021

Our Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic offers private patients fast access to specialist ophthalmic care. We asked the clinic lead, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon Mr Badrul Hussain to explain the new service.

Conditions and symptoms

This clinic is for adults with:

  • New or undiagnosed eye conditions
  • An urgent or worrying problem with their eyes or a sudden change in eyesight
  • Infection or a foreign object in the eye
  • Unexplained eye symptoms such as dry, painful or itchy eyes

The Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic will assess you quickly to get you the right diagnosis and treatment.

No need for a referral

You don’t need to be referred by your GP or optician to be seen at our Rapid Access and Urgent Care Clinic. The clinic’s aim is to get you fast access to expert help. Simply call 0800 328 3421 to book your appointment.

Your appointment

You will be seen by a consultant experienced in a wide range of eye conditions. After the initial checks run by a nurse, you will be seen by a consultant who will give you a comprehensive assessment and talk you though the treatment recommendations, prescriptions and any further care. They would also be able to help you with any queries or questions you may have about your eyes.

In some circumstances, your consultant may require additional tests, ask you to come back for a review or refer you to a sub-specialist consultant at Moorfields Private for further investigation or treatment.
