Glaucoma Fellow

This is an exciting opportunity to work alongside Mrs Divya Mathews who has been developing the glaucoma service at the Stanley Eye Unit as lead consultant with an interest in glaucoma since 2009. The glaucoma fellowship program has been in place for the last 4 years with all candidates being successfully appointed as consultants following the fellowship.

Currently over 240 Glaucoma procedures are performed by Mrs Mathews annually and she is overseeing the development of the management of glaucoma outpatients within the Ophthalmic Diagnostic and Treatment Centre programme (ODTC).  We have successfully implemented the use of ‘virtual clinics’ in the management of glaucoma patients and the successful candidate will gain useful experience in the development of this service.

Non penetrating surgery is the main Glaucoma surgical procedure of choice in our department but we also undertake MIGS (Istent, XEN Implant), trabeculectomy with augmentation and Glaucoma tube surgery. Exposure to complex glaucoma surgery will be available to the successful candidate. The candidate will also have the opportunity to train in SLT laser. The post will therefore provide broad experience in all aspects of the management of glaucoma patients from both an outpatient and surgical perspective. There will be ample opportunity for the candidate to be involved in research and publications.

The successful candidate must be close to completing their training programme or have already obtained CCT. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have a high level of expertise in phacoemulsification.  The post is available from August 2019, will be paid on the Specialty Doctor pay scale and is for a fixed period of 12 months.

Please refer to the attached timetable and description of the Stanley Eye Unit for further information.

BCUHB is committed to improving the working lives of our employees. We actively promote equal opportunities, flexible working and staff support. Applications from those wishing to work less than full time will be encouraged.
