Independent Health Group
Community Based Day Surgery
White Horse Health Centre, Westbury, WIltshire
£45,0000 to £50,000 p.a. pro rata

Independent Health Group is a small, friendly, entrepreneurial organisation which delivers patient-centred, NHS day-case surgery in the community. We are looking to appoint an Optometrist to work within our existing cataract service to undertake pre-operative assessments and post-operative reviews with patients.

We are looking for an experienced Optometrist who is used to working independently without day to day supervision and has experience of testing post-operative cataract patients.

The Optometrist will work closely with the Consultant Ophthalmologists who undertake the cataract procedures, initially undertaking assessments with their support until confident to work fully independently in our service. This is a change to our current patient pathway: We anticipate needing 3 to 4 sessions a month although this may increase.

Once the initial training and induction is completed with the other members of the team, we can be flexible about when the clinics are offered, to suit the Optometrist.

We are able to offer this appointment on an hourly paid employed basis, or as a direct contractor
