We are looking for three enthusiastic Consultants to work in our dynamic and expanding Ophthalmology team, who can offer a general Ophthalmology service with a subspecialist interest that will support our patients. It would be desirable but not essential that you have subspecialist interest in Glaucoma, Paediatrics or Medical Retina.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has undergone a major redevelopment of the Ophthalmology Department. The creation of a new £800,000 Eye Department at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital brings a number of benefits to both patients and staff, including modern facilities, new equipment and increased capacity.

In addition to this, the department has recruited new ophthalmic nurses, specialty doctors and Consultants, as well as developing existing nurses and optometrists into enhanced clinical roles. One of the ways we are improving employee experience, staff involvement and engagement is that we are recruiting according to our Trust’s values, behaviours and attitudes.

It is a particularly exciting time to join the Trust, as we are currently working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK Trusts to receive this support, from what is regarded as one of the safest hospitals in the world. As part of the partnership, the department
has significantly improved patient letters and clinic processes. It poses a unique opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a part of our journey.

Shropshire is a beautiful county located between the West Midlands and Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills, it is anything but sleepy. The county is bustling with idyllic towns, great schools, and plenty to do, regardless of your interests.

Join us and together we will achieve.
