The College would like to hear from ophthalmologists about any difficulties you experience in delivering care, such as capacity issues, so that we are well placed to argue the case for ophthalmology with the Department of Health and with the NHS boards in the four countries of the UK.  Please contact president@rcophth.ac.uk if there is any aspect of the service that you wish to draw to our attention, including solutions.

As a new consultant you will be presented with many new challenges.  As you settle into the role, we hope that you will want to contribute to the RCOphth, your professional body.  For instance, the College’s scientific journal, Eye, welcomes new reviewers and you can apply to be a College Tutor or Regional Adviser.  After two years in post, you will be eligible to apply to the Examiners’ panel, after three years you can apply to the CESR panel and to sit on Advisory Appointment Committees.  We are committed to advertising other College roles in order to increase openness and transparency.

We rely on medical personnel departments to confirm consultant appointments. Please contact psassistant@rcophth.ac.uk if you notice an error or omission.
