North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust is no ordinary NHS hospital. It has a reputation for dynamism, integration of clinicians in management, and high quality patient care.

The Department of Ophthalmology is unusual for a DGH, being arranged by subspecialty for more than a decade, offering the opportunities of a university hospital whilst also retaining the freedom to innovate. Examples include shared care community schemes, expanded roles for Nurses & other non medical health care professionals, and a high level of clinical research that has shaped improvements in eye care nationally over many years.

The department firmly believes in investing in a strong IT infrastructure to develop innovative pathways to meet capacity demands including virtual clinics.

Following the merger of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals with Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon last year, there is an opportunity to recruit a full time Speciality Doctor to add expertise to the new, combined Trust, working alongside existing colleagues. This is an exciting opportunity for a Doctor who has broad Ophthalmology experience and is keen to join a multidisciplinary team providing optimal care.

The hospitals provide comprehensive ophthalmology care for the Huntingdon, Stamford, Peterborough, Ely and Fenland areas and also receive some referrals from the wider region.

This post will have sessions at Peterborough Hospitals and /or Hinchingbrooke with also an on call commitment in the job plan. This post may also have sessions at one of the satellites to develop services in an innovative way.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the services in the new merged organization.
