Join us at this very exciting time as Poole Hospital and Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals have just merged into the University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust.

We have ambitious plans to develop our sites, making even better use of our combined resources to serve our population most effectively.

You will now be one of the first new employees of University Hospitals Dorset and you will be taking up the many opportunities that Dorset has to offer in the way of a rewarding work life balance.

We are located within an area of amazing beauty which includes opportunities to drive, walk,  run, swim or cycle in the New Forest , in the Purbecks, along miles of golden beaches and the Jurassic coastline.   Bournemouth is a vibrant university town with a wide selection of restaurants and cafes; theatres, cinemas and sporting activities and Poole attracts many visitors, has a large natural harbour and is perfect for water sports or relaxing at a quayside restaurant. 

Transport links are excellent with Bournemouth International airport, Cross-channel ferry terminals at Poole and direct train access to London. 

Please note all staff being recruited are expected to be available to work flexibly across our new Trust sites when service demands require it.

We are looking for an individual who has significant  Ophthalmic Imaging experience to manage/develop our Photography Department in the Eye Unit. 

You will be responsible for leading the photography team within our busy Out Patients Department.  You will be required to upskill our technicians and ensure ongoing development to ensure we can improve our service as technology evolves.

You will work closely with the Service Manger and Deputy Clinical Leads in both the Outpatients and Eye Emergency Departments to ensure we run an effective and responsive service.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to join our supportive, positive and adaptable team and be able to make a difference to our patients.

It is anticipated that the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will merge in 2020 to form East Dorset Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It is a condition of employment that all staff being recruited in the period before merger will work across all sites pre and post-merger
