Nursing

Moorfields Eye Hospital Trust school of nursing offers a wide range of study days, short courses, workshops and bespoke trainings. We continue to enable non-medical staff to learn new skills and take on responsibilities previously within the remit only of doctors. This ensures that everyone’s professional expertise is used to the best effect and provides improvements to patient care. For example, some nurses at Moorfields are now qualified to administer intravitreal injections to patients with wet age-related macular degeneration – a service previously provided only by medical staff – while others are trained to provide laser treatment for posterior capsular opacification, a common side-effect of cataract surgery.

Courses can be purchased online however, we also offer E-Learning and can provide bespoke training to suit your needs.

Dependant on your requirements, we can train your staff either within our classrooms at Moorfields or within your own site. For further information, please email us schoolofnursingtraining@moorfields.nhs.uk
