Applications are invited for 2 Speciality Doctor posts in Ophthalmology at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, based at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup. Applicants must have extensive training and appropriate experience.

Ophthalmology services are centred at King’s College Hospital, Queen Mary’s Hospital and Princess Royal University 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 Kings and 15 working at Queen Mary’s and Princess Royal University Hospitals) 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 suitably trained individuals to join a department that is undergoing exciting developments. The successful applicants 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.

Applicants should be on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register. Applications from those unable to work full time will also be considered.
