We are very pleased to confirm that The Wimpole Eye Clinic has remained open for patient appointments during the second and third lockdowns. During the first lockdown (March to June 2020) The Wimpole Eye Clinic was only open occasionally for essential post-operative and urgent appointments. In preparation for the lockdown lifting we underwent an official, and extremely detailed, two hour on-site risk assessment in order to make sure that we were well within the CQC and government guidelines on minimising the risk of coronavirus transmission. This gave us confidence to reopen in June (2020) and everything that we put in place then, and continue to put in place now, helps us to ensure the safety of our patients, our staff, and our visitors.

What can you expect as a patient?

Combining all of the above we believe that we are protecting our patients and visitors (and ourselves) as much as is physically possible. Although it might seem rather dramatic, we have adopted exactly the same PPE measures for our staff at The Wimpole Eye Clinic as at Moorfields Eye Hospital itself (where Professor Gartry took part in emergency only NHS clinics and operating theatre sessions throughout the lockdown periods).  Moorfields Eye Hospital, as many will know, is a large National Health Service teaching hospital (the largest eye hospital in the world) and has been at the forefront in adopting and adhering to the necessary Government measures to ensure safety of patients and staff.  We are pleased to announce however that, following the easing of the most recent lockdown which began in early January 2021, Moorfields Eye Hospital is once again offering clinic and operating theatre sessions for both its NHS and its private patients.

If you would like to book an appointment please call us on 0207 490 7222 and we can answer any questions you may have or, if you prefer, you can contact us via our booking form.

We very much look forward to seeing you.

Thank you from all of us at The Wimpole Eye Clinic, and especially many thanks indeed for the patience of our existing patients, especially if the COVID restrictions have caused any delay in your treatments.

Best wishes and stay safe

David Gartry and team at TWEC
