Here’s what our people have to say about working at Newmedica:
Louise Brown, Team Leader
I started off as a Clinic Assistant, supporting with general, retinal and glaucoma clinics.
A year on, a new service opened which was closer to home so I was asked to go support the day to day running of the service, as well as mentor a new team of clinic assistants.
From this work, I was promoted to Senior Clinic Assistant where I became responsible for things like rotas for the service and day to day liaison with the trust. I then became a Team Leader.
I was then asked to help support a new service in London and a weekend service in Sutton in Ashfield which I did for 6 months before taking up my current post as Team Leader in Barlborough in June 2016. The Barlborough service is much bigger and has a wider range of services to other services I’ve been involved in so I now work there full time and a lead a team of 4 clinic assistants.
Barlborough has been a real challenge as this has been a varied clinic with taking on all types of Ophthalmology including cataracts, laser and oculoplastics.
I really enjoy working for Newmedica with the varied work that comes with it; no day is the same and it keeps you busy and on your toes. You have to work as a team to get the job done and patient care is foremost the most important part of the job.
Seeing the patient discharged and knowing you have helped take care of that patients eyes is very rewarding.
