About the role: Are you an experienced optometrist looking for something different from practice, or perhaps you have domiciliary experience and would like to discover what it's like working for a business that is truly focused on patient care and ethical prescribing?

As an optometrist with Visioncall your role is very different from the norm. You will have clinical freedom and the variation of getting out and about visiting patients mainly within care home environments. With no evening or weekend working, you will be accompanied by an experienced dispensing optician/ optical assistant who not only does the driving for you but will support you throughout your clinics, allowing you to focus on the sight test and patient.

We are looking for an associate optometrist in the Middlesbrough area who can provide their services to us up to 3 days per week. 

Benefits
  • Competitive rates
  • Consistent weekly days or block bookings
  • Flexibility – working part time or alongside your other commitments
  • Travel within 20-25 miles of your home post code
  • No weekends or evenings
  • Clinical and digital equipment provided
  • Full support and training from your local clinical team
  • Self-employed position – work as a sole trader or LTD company
