This is a major digital service transformation of ophthalmic services for which we are seeking a highly motivated and capable individual and we are looking for you!

You will undertake the lead role for Eye Care Digitisation IT service management and will offer support by proactively identifying opportunities to improve IT systems and services.

Working directly with colleagues and service users across the region, the post holder will be confident to challenge existing ways of working to bring about service improvement and will take the lead to ensure that all Eye Care Digitisation IT systems perform to the requirements and expectations of all end-users.

You will need to maintain a high skill level and liaise with a wide range of staff within the both the Ophthalmology Departments and the Optometric Practices within the region.

You will work closely with Heads of Operation and Delivery, Clinicians and Senior IM&T Managers to achieve the objectives and in order to deliver the expected benefits of the new system across the entire implementation.
