Vision Support Service

At the Moorfields Eye Clinic, St George’s Hospital, Tooting.

Samantha Jarvis is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Eye Unit, or phone the Helpline number 020 8543 4989

The aim of the service is to be a bridge between the medical world where doctors do their best to repair people's eyes and the support services that exist for people with reduced vision.

Some of our specific aims are:-

  • To have time to listen to patients at a very stressful moment.
  • To help inform patients of the services and help available to them and of the possible benefit to them of accepting registration as the trigger for such support services.
  • To liaise where necessary with further support services
  • To make sure that the overall system does act in as 'seamless' manner as possible.

The service is available to all patients who attend the eye clinic at St. George's Hospital, not just Merton residents.
