Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust (NDHT) is a unique organisation with integrated acute and community services across North Devon. The acute hospital provides a full complement of secondary care services for the local population, including emergency care, cancer services, and maternity and paediatric services.

Staff at NDHT get a work-life balance like nowhere else. At work, they are part of a supportive team, in roles that deliver all the challenges you would want from a career in the NHS. In their spare time, they are out surfing, hiking, cycling and enjoying the most amazing scenery that Devon has to offer, with beautiful beaches just a stone’s throw away from the hospital. This makes the area especially perfect for families as well as anyone looking for a new start away from stressful city life.

The ophthalmology department is well-known in the region for its training and how it encourages and supports its clinicians to gain excellent experience in a variety of ophthalmic sub-specialties.
