An exciting opportunity has arisen for full time and/or part time individuals who are enthusiastic and hard working to join the Shropshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme. We are looking to recruit up to 3 full time equivalent posts.

We provide a much valued service to nearly 29,000 diabetic patients across Shropshire, visiting both community and hospital venues.

As part of the team you will visit our community venues and conduct a screening clinic for the day, capturing digital photographs of the back of the eye which are then graded for diabetic eye disease by the team back at our hospital site.

You will work autonomously to assess the patient’s vision, instil dilating eye drops and photographing the back of the eye. You will be required to triage the images captured at your clinic to ensure timely grading is done.

A background in healthcare/ photography/ customer service would be an advantage but not essential as full training will be given.
