Taylors Optometrists, of Winsford, Cheshire are looking for an Optometrist to join our team.

We are a friendly, relaxed, long established practice with a reputation for the highest levels of patient care.  The practice is well equipped and organised around the optometrist. All patients have an OCT scan and Fundus photographs, and we have FDT and a Humphrey VFA. We are active in many local enhanced services including MECS, CUES, Cataract Pre and Post op, OHT monitoring and Glaucoma referral refinement and are always willing to expand into specific areas of interest. We look to support and develop our staff during their career.

We are looking for a candidate who can communicate well with patients and discuss with clarity their eyes, their optical needs, recommended correction options and explain any optical conditions they may have or develop. Understanding of OCT scans and their application to everyday practice is desirable. They should show a willingness to continue to learn and develop their own areas of interest and expertise and to offer these to clients within the framework of the practice. We are looking for an optometrist who wants to involve themselves in the whole of the practice and patient journey.

The role is for 2-4 days per week. We would consider a newly qualified candidate or an experienced optometrist. At weekends, the practice is open on Saturday morning only and this would be on a rota system. Salary, pension, hours, testing times and holidays are negotiable for the right candidate. During the Pandemic we are currently offering 40-minute test times with pre-screening including Fundus Photographs and OCTs. We don’t operate using commercial targets as we expect all our practice staff to offer what is best for each individual patient.
