Help transform people’s lives with a career at Newmedica

Newmedica provides specialist eyecare services for both NHS and private patients across England. Focusing on protecting people’s sight through the treatment of advanced eye conditions, we care for more than 160,000 patients a year in more than 26 convenient locations. We believe in treating each patient as an individual, taking the time to understand their needs and feelings, and making sure they feel cared for at every stage, so they can get back to doing what they love

About us

Newmedica is unique among ophthalmology providers. We were founded by a former eye patient who teamed up with a leading Ophthalmology consultant to transform the patient experience and deliver the best care possible. Their vision was to change lives through better sight and vision and make a positive difference to peoples’ lives – and it’s still at the heart of each of our clinics today. We’ve built our services based on personal experience. That’s why we always start with our patients’ needs and make sure they’re taken care of with total understanding and compassion.

From their initial consultation to the aftercare we provide, we’re here to support our patients whenever they need it, so they can keep doing what they love.
