Applications are invited for a Speciality Doctor post in Ophthalmology at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, predominantly based at the Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup. Applicants must have extensive training, appropriate experience and be GMC registered.

Ophthalmology services are centred at King's College Hospital, Queen Mary's Hospital and Orpington Hospital. Services also are provided at University Hospital of Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The Ophthalmology Service is staffed by 28 Consultant Ophthalmologists (13 based at King's and 15 working at Queen Mary's and Orpington Hospital) covering all subspecialty interests. There is support from a range of non-Consultant medical staff and a full complement of orthoptists, optometrists, ophthalmic photographers, technicians, specialist nurses and administrative staff. The outpatient departments are well equipped and there are dedicated eye theatres at the 3 main sites.

This is an excellent opportunity for a suitably trained individual to join a department that is undergoing exciting developments. The successful applicant will be expected to have extensive experience in general ophthalmology and to have worked in subspecialties such as medical retina, glaucoma and emergency ophthalmology. There is no on-call commitment.
