The Royal Eye Infirmary (REI) will move to its new purpose-built facilities at Derriford Hospital this month, with the first operations scheduled for Wednesday 30th January.

As part of plans to develop and enhance the ophthalmology services offered by Plymouth Hospitals, the REI will be relocating from its current site at Mutley Plain to state-of-the-art, purpose-built facilities on level 3 at Derriford Hospital.

The REI provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment options for conditions of the eye.

The existing building is well over 100 years old and is no longer suitable for the ever-expanding and developing service.
