An exciting opportunity has arisen for you to join our dedicated highly motivated Ophthalmology team. As an integral member of this team you will support the Consultants in providing a comprehensive service in Ophthalmology to the population of Scarborough, Bridlington and the surrounding areas.

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has an ambitious programme of service modernisation and a reputation for providing high quality services. In line with our outlook, we are now inviting applications for this post, in the Ophthalmology team at Scarborough Hospital.

The post holder will join a team consisting of 19 consultants in the ophthalmology service.

There are 4 Scarborough based consultants and a further 3 Scarborough based specialty doctor posts with this post being one of the three.

Applicants must have 4 years postgraduate training with at least three years experience in Ophthalmology at the grade of SHO/equivalent or higher grade.

The post is not a recognised training post, but would be ideal for those wishing to gain further experience in the specialty as the training, supervision and clinical experience will be similar to that of the training grade doctors and tailored to the post holder's previous level of experience.

Candidates must have full GMC Registration, a familiarity with issues of service organisation and development would be particularly advantageous. MRCOphth is desirable.

Please note that as of July 2012, Scarborough Hospital has become part of York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Candidates must be aware of the organisation's expectation for them to be prepared to work across York, Scarborough and Bridlington Hospital sites where it is a requirement of their service.

The Trust also offers an excellent Staff Benefits package to all employees, which includes salary sacrifice schemes and local discounts/offers. In addition you will receive an excellent Study leave package to support your on-going professional development; we also offer a competitive relocation package.

Interested parties should contact Mr A Vyas (01723 342269)

Please note that some of our substantive vacancies may be available on a smaller number of hours than advertised. If you would be interested in applying on this basis, we would encourage you to contact the appointing manager to enquire further.

DBS Checks

Please be aware that all new employees starting work with us will be charged for the cost of their DBS check if it is required for the role. The cost will be deducted from your salary either in 1 payment or over a six month period once you start employment. By applying you are agreeing to this undertaking. If you are successful you will be asked to confirm if you wish to pay in one amount or in instalments. The charges are currently £30.20 for a standard check and £48.20 for an enhanced check. The level of check will be determined by the post you are applying for.

Please note that Band 1 roles, Volunteers, Bank only staff and Apprentices on the National Apprenticeship Minimum Wage will not be charged.
