Paediatric optometrist sessions in NHS Fife as follows: 

As part of our recovery plan for paediatric ophthalmology we are looking for community optometrists who would be keen to take up a session or two of paediatric refraction within the HES.

These clinics would be joint clinics with orthoptist. The sessions on offer are:

  • St Andrews AM and PM sessions on a Monday
  • Queen Margaret Hospital PM on Monday
  • Queen Margaret Hospital AM and PM session Thursday

There would be the opportunity to shadow an existing hospital optometrist or ophthalmologist in the first instance.

The aim of these additional sessions is to deal with the backlog of patients needing seen after lockdown and for the moment funding has only been agreed for the short term. However, we foresee that further investment in hospital optometry is going to be required in the medium to long term, so this would be a good way for those interested in the HES to get a taster of what is involved.
