BBR Optometry is a well-established independent optometry practice with a strong bias
towards the clinical. We lie at
the heart of Herefordshire CCG enhanced services which has possibly the widest range of
funded NHS services in England.
We are proud of the strong relationship forged with our exemplary local Eye Unit and
have seen nine Optometrists
graduate at IP level in the past 7 years. Several of our team take on sessions at the
Hereford Victoria Eye Unit.
We now have a vacancy for a 2-3 days flexible hours clinically minded Optometrist. We
would rather a PAYE contract but
self-employed via a legitimate service company would be acceptable.
We presently have 5 Optometrists (2 of whom are business owners): all are glaucoma
higher cert and MECs accredited, 3
are IP and 2 are medical retina. Hereford has schemes in pre & post cat, MECS, MECS
casualty discharge, OHT, glaucoma,
children, low vision and medical retina fast track. As such we would expect any joining
optometrist to commit to
achieving MECS and IP status if they did not have that already and funding is available.
We fully engage in staff
development and have been accredited at Gold level as Investors in People since 2001. We
are a training practice for
both DO’s in placement and Optometrists.
In addition to the high standard of clinical services built on a strong reputation we
have superb equipment. We
installed the first spectral domain OCT in an optometry practice in the UK in 2007 and
the first swept-source OCT since
2015, in 2017 we took delivery of the first OPTOS California in Europe. Two consulting
rooms are about to be newly
equipped this summer with state of the art equipment including automated phoropters.
We are also a busy high end dispensing practice with 5 DO’s dispensing top end Tom
Davies bespoke, Lindberg and
Silhouette with Nikon and Rodenstock lenses.
We are a specialist CL practice being amongst the first to work with Coopervision
MiSight myopia control and a
significant number of specialist fits including ortho-K, scleral and keratoconic
