Just posting in this forum aswell in case anyone knows about the following.
I have been offered a place on a pre-reg MSc Orthoptics course at Liverpool. Are there any Orthoptists on here?
I want to find out a bit more about job prospects, because there do not appear to be many Orthoptist vacancies on NHS Jobs.
Within the NHS, are Orthoptists eligible to apply for any other positions/perform other roles within Ophthalmology?
Also, are there any opportunities for Orthoptists to work in high street opticians/private practice? I have no doubt that I would find the job to be fascinating and rewarding, it is just the jobs market which concerns me. Also, does anyone know if it is possible to do a shortened optometry course as a qualified orthoptist?
Thanks in advance.
