About this house
The Ronald McDonald House at Moorfields Eye Hospital is a unique House as it is located at a specialist hospital that only treats patients with ophthalmic conditions. It is the only Ronald McDonald House in the UK where accommodation is pre-booked. This is because the Hospital largely carries out elective surgery. The House has specialist equipment for the blind and visually impaired and provides an array of creature comforts for families from all over the UK and the rest of the world.
In 2016 the House helped 219 families be closer to their child in hospital.
About the hospital
Moorfields is the oldest centre for ophthalmic treatment, teaching and research in the world and as such has a truly outstanding reputation. All children and young people up to the age of 16 are cared for in the Richard Desmond Children’s Eye Centre (RDCEC). This facility is the largest of its type anywhere in the world solely dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of children’s eye disease. It provides world-class treatment, for conditions from the routine to the rare and complex, for over 25,000 paediatric patients each year.
"When we were referred to the Ronald McDonald House, we were amazed about the amount of care and attention we received, the standard of the facilities and the welcoming atmosphere that immediately put us at ease. For us, the most important thing was for the children to feel safe and the House provided just that - a safe haven. Our daughter, Lerryn, was only a baby and a cot was installed in our room, so we all stayed together as a family."
