Applications are invited for the above post based at the Warrington and Halton Hospital NHS Trust.
This is a one year clinical fellowship programme that will provide specialist ophthalmology training to the successful post holder. The specifics of the post will be determined by the individual training requirements and will usually be a combination of theatre and outpatient clinical sessions.
The Fellow will be expected to deliver appropriate care to patients with other eye conditions as needed which will provide the opportunity to maintain general ophthalmology skills. The post holder will also form part of the on call rota.
This post is designed to offer extensive surgical training and those who are after receiving their CCST or those nearing completion of their specialist training programme or equivalent will be given priority. Please note however that the period may not be accredited for CCST training by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists
We want to invest in applicants who are motivated and dedicated to providing high standards of patient care and see their own personal and professional development as a priority but who will be fit to manage the growing challenges of healthcare in the UK as we move forward.
