Retinal Screener/Grader

Location: North Yorkshire DESP (Harrogate Area)

Salary: £20,150 - £23,363

Closing Date: 28th January

Description:

North Yorkshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme is looking to recruit for the retinal screening team based in the Harrogate area.
Previous experience is not essential as full training will be given. Existing retinal screener/graders are also more than welcome to apply and consideration will be given to the best candidate on the day . The screening locality team are part of the North Yorkshire Diabetic Eye Screening Programme delivering a photographic screening service to over 42,000 people with diabetes across North Yorkshire.

 

Experience of the use of Digital fundus cameras for the capture of retinal images is an advantage and working in busy clinic environments delivering health care and working without direct supervision is useful although not essential.

The post on offer is primarily based at the Harrogate locality base and the successful candidate will join the locality team delivering retinal screening service in the surrounding area. The post holder however will be called to deliver the service in other areas covered by the retinal screening service as and when required.

Each team consists of a screener/grader team leader and screener graders. Screener/graders will travel to various locations in the retinal screening service fleet of purpose fitted vans. These locations may be GP surgeries, Health Centres or Hospitals.

The screener/graders will undertake clinics where they will perform digital photographic image capture of each patient's eyes. They will then grade (assess) the image to determine any signs of disease making the necessary reports on the outcome of the grading to ensure any problems are noted and acted upon.

Being in the front line of service delivery the screener/grader will have contact with patients and their carers, GP practices teams and various other agencies. This will require a high level of communication skills and customer care skills to ensure good relationships are developed across a diverse area.

Experience in using windows based computer systems would be an advantage. Experience of using digital cameras would be useful even if it's for home photography. The successful candidate will be expected to transport themselves and equipment throughout the locality.

The Diploma of Retinopathy Screening or willingness to undertake the Diploma is required for this post. Nationally a wide range of people from a variety of backgrounds have opted to train as screener/graders so please don't be put off applying if you don't have the Diploma or experience of retinal screening as full training and support will be given.
