Refurbishment of Kingston Hospital’s eye emergency clinic

30 April 2021

We are refurbishing our eye emergency clinic in The Royal Eye Unit, to create more space and to improve the experience for our patients.

The clinic will be closed from 24 May 2021 and will reopen in August 2021.

What if I need urgent eye care during this time?
If you have an urgent eye problem, please phone 020 8934 6799 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4.30pm). If you are already under the care of The Royal Eye Unit and your eye problem is related to the condition you are being treated for, we will book an appointment for you at Kingston Hospital, if necessary. If you are not currently a Royal Eye Unit patient, we will give you advice on where your eye problem can be dealt with. This may be another eye hospital or a community service.

If you have an urgent eye problem outside of the hours of Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4.30pm, please call NHS 111.

I already have an appointment at The Royal Eye Unit. Will my appointment still go ahead?
We would like to reassure patients that routine planned treatments, operations and outpatient eye services will not be affected by the refurbishment and will continue to take place within the Royal Eye Unit during this time.

Thank you for your co-operation and apologies for any inconvenience.
