What’s been happening at the charity and how has your support made a difference? Our autumn issue of Visibility (our bi-annual newsletter) is now out! We’re celebrating innovation and the global impact of our work on eye health, patient care and people’s lives. A revolution is coming...
You'll hear about the research projects we’re supporting which are breaking new ground; a patient who has overcome challenges to travel the world; how Research England is backing Oriel (our proposed global eye health centre), and more. Robert Dufton, our chief executive, said:
It’s an exciting time in eye health innovation and Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is at the forefront of this.
Many routine healthcare processes now use digital technology, but the transformation is about so much more with highly co-ordinated care involving community practitioners and new artificial intelligence approaches leading to increasingly personalised plans.
Funding ‘outstanding’ practice
We’re delighted that the Care Quality Commission highlighted outstanding practice in many areas at the trust which we fund including service innovation – see our front page story.
You can also get to know three of the talented researchers we’re supporting who are leading a revolution in tailored diagnoses and treatments.
The future is digital
Our winter appeal launching in November is raising money for the Digital Clinical Laboratory. It will position the trust as leaders in eye health advances as we prepare for the future with real benefits for patients at the hospital and beyond.
Your sight really matters
We love hearing stories about how patients and supporters are able to achieve everything they want to and more. Lois Pryce’s travels around the world demonstrate there are no limits to what’s possible.
Having a global impact
An interview with Adam Mapani gives you glimpses into the working life of this nurse consultant at the trust and a Clinical Teaching Fellow at UCL. He’s the first nurse on the Ophthalmology power list – a global list of influencers.
Thank you to everyone for donating, cycling, baking, running and more - showing us how passionate you are about supporting people with sight loss.
