Working With Us
Our staff make this hospital what it is, everyone’s contribution is valued and acknowledged.
With over 100 staff roles at the Trust, every single employee has a part in making the team at CUH the very best.
Whatever your role, the quality of care our patients receive is dependent on the contribution of each and every member of staff. We believe that this is a joint approach – the attitude, qualities and skills you bring to your role in the Trust and the support, development and job satisfaction you can and will expect from us in return.
I have been working at CUH as an Orthoptist for over a year since graduating. My role involves a multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation of patients’ vision, eye movements and use of the eyes together e.g 3D vision.
As an Orthoptist, no two days are the same – one day you can be examining the vision and eye movements of a child only a few months of age and then next, you can be doing the same but with a person well into their 90s. The best thing about being an Orthoptist is being able to solve problems and utilise the skills and theoretical knowledge I learnt at university to best treat and manage patients.
Being at CUH has resulted in me progressing professionally. The variety of complex eye conditions I see encourages me to continue to learn and develop as a health professional. Working at CUH has allowed me to progress my skills into further ophthalmology sub-specialities including training to investigate patients in the Glaucoma service as an extended role.
