Four doctors are in the running for the Clinical Service of the Year Award as part of the Macular Disease Society’s 25th Anniversary Awards for Excellence.

Raja Das-Bhaumik, Adam Mapani, Eric Ezra and Simona Degli Esposti have received nominations. Helen Jackman, chief executive of the Macular Disease Society, said: “The staff at Moorfields do an incredible job and we are delighted they have been recognised for their excellent work.”

Mr Das-Bhaumik, consultant ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon, said: “We do our very best for all patients that come through Moorfields, so I’m delighted that people have taken the time to nominate us. I like to think that Moorfields is a beacon of hope for patients who have nowhere else to turn.

Rose Miles, who submitted a nomination, said: “From my initial telephone call before attending A&E, right through my experience in the department to the point of seeing Mr Das-Bhaumik, I felt totally at ease and comforted that I was in the hands of professionals.”
