Locum Consultant Ophthalmologist interest in Glaucoma and Cataract,

Duration: 6 months 

Based Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport 

 Full Time 

 Closing Date for Applications: Midnight on 12th February 2022

We are looking to appoint a Locum Consultant Ophthalmologist with similar values to our team, specializing in Glaucoma and Cataract, providing sub-specialty out-patient clinics and theatre sessions within Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) 

 This is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic and forward thinking, progressive innovative eye care service team comprising 12 Consultants, 5 Specialty trainees, 5 Nurse Practitioners, 6 Orthoptists, 3 optometrists and a substantial team of Ophthalmic Nurses, technicians, and healthcare assistants.  

Our Ophthalmology department also benefits from an Eye Clinic Liaison Officer, admin & booking teams and along with a supportive senior management team within the Ophthalmology directorate and Scheduled care. 

ABUHB has 3 main ophthalmology sites – the Royal Gwent Hospital, Neville Hall Hospital & Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr, most of these sites benefiting from the lovely scenic views of Wales! 

The health board is currently one of the most digitized NHS Health Boards in the country utilizing a platform called Clinical Workstation with Open Eyes recently introduced in Ophthalmology. This makes us currently one of the most paper-light and digitized Ophthalmology Departments in the country. In addition to this we are a teaching unit regularly teaching undergraduate optometrists as well as medical students from Cardiff University. We are also a unit involved in research with a designated Ophthalmology Research Lead.  Our main site is also equipped with the state-of-the-art EyeSi surgical simulators, which enables our trainees to become familiar with surgical steps and finesse their techniques in a safe environment. Our department is indeed one that most clinicians would love to be in.
