We are seeking an experienced ophthalmologist to support and expand our ophthalmology referral team. The successful applicant will ideally hold a European, American or RCVS Diploma (or equivalent), have had significant exposure to ophthalmic surgery, and share our aim of providing the best possible levels of care for pets, their owners and referring veterinary surgeons. (Board-eligible candidates will also be considered).
Willows has been providing a specialist-level referral service in ophthalmology for over 25 years and attracts referrals from a wide catchment area. The practice has outstanding facilities, which are complemented by an excellent team of support staff, giving our clinicians the opportunity to concentrate on their clinical caseload and to work in a pleasant, supportive and good-humoured atmosphere. Willows is accredited by Investors in People at the extended Silver level, and we are dedicated to providing excellent working conditions, care and support for all of our 160+ personnel.
The ophthalmology team members work closely together and alongside our other specialist-led teams in the disciplines of anaesthesia, internal medicine, neurology, orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery, oncology, dermatology, cardiology and diagnostic imaging. This truly multi-disciplinary specialist service allows our ophthalmologists to offer the best levels of patient and client care, whatever the problem may be.
This position will be very well remunerated, and the package includes six weeks' paid holiday, two weeks funded CPD, and one week for committee and examining commitments each year. A company pension scheme and private healthcare are also available.
Willows is centrally located within easy reach of Birmingham Airport and the national rail and motorway networks, but only a short drive away from historic Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and beautiful Warwickshire countryside.
