An exciting opportunity has arisen at our newly refurbished ophthalmology referral hospital in Banbury. We are looking for a diplomate or board eligible clinician to join our growing team, which currently consists of one diplomate (Mike Rhodes), one ECVO resident, one advanced practitioner and an experienced nursing team.

As a small, family run independent business, we pride ourselves in maintaining the highest possible clinical standards and in providing a personal service to referring vets and clients. Run by vets, we recognise the importance of well-being amongst our staff, a good work/life balance and champion environmental sustainability as a key element in our business development.
