Natasha Spiteri

I graduated from Medical School in Malta in 2004, after which I undertook ophthalmic training in the Mersey region in the UK. I then completed a 12-month fellowship in Sydney, Australia sub-specialising in corneal disease and surgery.

I took up a consultant post at the Countess of Chester Hospital in 2017, where I have invested much time and effort in developing the cornea service.

In 2017-2018 I undertook a postgraduate diploma in cataract and refractive surgery with the University of Ulster, where I learned about various surgical and laser treatment options to reduce dependence on spectacles.

I have a particular passion for education and training.  I am currently College Tutor at the Countess of Chester Hospital, responsible for the coordination and delivery of local training of young ophthalmologists.  I regularly train on cataract and microsurgical skills courses at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

My areas of interest are cataract surgery, refractive lens surgery, corneal and anterior segment disease, corneal transplant surgery and general ophthalmology.
