I have just been made aware of an excellent opportunity for an experienced Optometrist to work in one of the most desirable places to live in the UK – Cornwall, Newquay. Due to its relaxed pace, ocean air, stress free and friendly culture Cornwall attracts the eye of many for holidays within the UK but this could be your chance to work, live and create a new life for yourself in the South-West.

Responsibilities of the Optometrist
You will conduct 25 minute tests as well as completing contact lens fittings and aftercares. You will be on hand to offer clinical advice and help patients to choose the best options for their needs. As this is an independent practice a dynamic and flexible approach to your work is required as everybody helps in all areas of the practice.
Working very closely with the NHS in a referral scheme offering an excellent service you would be able to develop your career and provide MECS services.
