Meet the Team
Head of Orthoptic Services
Community Lead Orthoptist
All Orthoptists hold a diploma or a degree in Orthoptics and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
We are also members of the British and Irish Orthoptic Society (BIOS).
There are 6 paediatric ophthalmologists and their teams who work in Children’s Eye Clinic. All training doctors are qualified doctors and have usually working in ophthalmology for years. As part of their training they need to learn about our work and some may decide this is the sub speciality they will work in once qualified as a consultant.
