About Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Moorfields is the leading provider of eye health services in the UK and a world-class centre of excellence for ophthalmic research and education. We have a reputation, developed over two centuries, for providing the highest quality of ophthalmic care.
We are registered without conditions and with an overall rating of ‘Good’ with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England. We are one of only 20 sites nationally that has National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) status, which provides us with the infrastructure to support major innovative research initiatives and enables us to fast track projects to benefit patients more quickly.
We provide a wide range of clinical services, caring for patients with routine ophthalmic needs as well as those with rare and complex conditions. Our 30 NHS sites across London and the south east of England allow us to provide expert treatment closer to patients’ homes. In partnership with the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, we conduct world-leading research. We play a leading role in the training and education of eye care clinicians, working with strategic partners to provide undergraduate training to almost 1,400 medical students each academic year. We manage two commercial divisions: Moorfields Private, and Moorfields United Arab Emirates.
Our 2,300 staff are committed to sustaining and building on our pioneering legacy and ensuring we remain at the cutting edge of developments in ophthalmology. If you join us, you will be joining our mission to be the leading international centre in the care and treatment of people with eye disorders, driven by excellence in research and education.
As well as doctors and nurses, we employ people in a wide range of careers related to eyes – optometrists, orthoptists, dispensing opticians, and technicians – as well as back office staff in administration, finance, HR and IT.
Based in the vibrant and fast developing high tech quarter centred around City Road, Hoxton and Shoreditch, we have a lively working atmosphere, easy and quick transport links, affordable housing in the coolest new developments right on the doorstep, career development opportunities for staff at all levels, and a range of attractive benefits that include eye care, generous holidays, and an excellent pension scheme.
You don’t have to be looking for a City base to work with us, though – we have a network of satellite sites across London and the south east of England offering fabulous opportunities.
