The Duke Elder ward at Moorfields Eye Centre at St George’s Hospital is closed while undergoing a full refurbishment.

 
The works are part of Moorfields commitment to improving their services, and an effort to provide the very best clinical environment for patients and staff both now and in the future.
 
The refurbishment of the Duke Elder ward will include a ward redesign and waiting area reconfiguration, improving patient experience and providing new, modern and fit-for-purpose accommodation and clinical pathways.
 
To undergo this important work, the Duke Elder ward must close for a minimum of six to eight months.

Duke Elder closed on 10 January 2018 and most services have relocated to St Anthony’s Hospital in Cheam, and to Moorfields at City Road.
