Training opportunities are growing, we always get good reports from people who come to study and learn from us. Because we are able to give very close supervision, we are able to mentor junior doctors or optometrists or orthoptists who are now joining the department.

I can speak from experience having been a trainee myself here many years ago, its a great diverse population to work with.

Given the geographical area we are in, we’re exposed to a full gamut of trauma from a high velocity of road traffic accidents to injuries encountered by outdoor enthusiasts such as mountaineers, skiers, ice climbers as well as catering for a huge tourist influx in summer so year on year we’ve seen a substantial rise in trauma operating gear.
