- Ophthalmic Surgery
SpaMedica is one of the leading providers of NHS eye patient services and, in 2018 we became the largest NHS cataract surgery provider in the UK. We believe in giving people the best advice and choices to help improve their vision and providing a high standard of care to each of our patients.
SpaMedica works in partnership with thousands of optometrists to deliver excellent care and support to each of our patients. We have a proven track record as a specialist provider of ophthalmology services providing NHS ophthalmology services as well as for private patients.
We are dedicated to drastically reducing waiting times for patients by working together with community optometrists enrolled in our cataract post-operative accreditation scheme. By working together we can provide great eye care and ultimately improve our patients’ quality of life.
We have more than 4,000 optometrists working with us within our ‘SpaMedica Accredited Partner Programme’ for cataract treatment, with over 70% of post-op assessments conducted by our community optometrist partners. A major benefit of our programme is the sharing of patient outcomes and feedback, which reflect the high standard of care and support we are delivering together. SpaMedica is registered with the General Optical Council (GOC) as a CET provider and you will receive one CET point for attending a SpaMedica Cataract Post-op Accreditation session.
In addition, we launched our SpaMedica Study programme in early 2021 – this includes us hosting monthly CET webinars where we invite our experienced consultant ophthalmologists to deliver educational programmes in one hour sessions with plenty of time given for your questions to be answered. The topics are chosen from feedback from optometrists in consultation with our Director of Optometry, Christine Purslow, and each course is approved for one interactive CET point.
As we’re growing and due to open more hospitals and expand our service offering we’re always looking for optometrists to join us to head up our clinical service in our hospitals – if you’re interested in joining the SpaMedica team please contact our recruitment team on email@example.com or visit https://spamedicajobs.co.uk/jobs/ to view our current vacancies
