Updated: Jun 28, 2018

Moorfields Eye Hospital will be featured on a unique documentary series created by the BBC. Each episode will focus on the life-changing work done by the NHS and other trusts. 

The BBC and Dr Oscar Duke will embark on a journey to look at how Moorfields Eye Hospital has transformed eye care and saved the sight of millions of patients.

Himself a patient at Moorfields since the age of three, Dr Duke explores how the 1960s and 70s transformed Moorfields from a general eye hospital to a specialist centre of excellence.

He has given exclusive access to cutting-edge treatments for a patient who was a victim of an acid attack who is undergoing stem cell treatment and five year-old who undergoes gene therapy to rectify a genetic condition that is robbing her of sight.

‘How the NHS changed our world’ will be aired on Wednesday 27 June from 7pm on BBC Two and is also currently available on BBC iPlayer:
