Trainee perspective Oxford glaucoma service
The glaucoma rotation at Oxford eye hospital is a fulfilling experience. The information provided in this section describes my experience trainings as an ST4 OST under Mr Gurjeet Jutley who is a Glaucoma and Cataract surgery specialist.
Working under the supervision of Mr Jutley was a fun and uncertainly rewarding experience. Mr Jutley is fair and leads by example. He cultivates a relaxing, inclusive and supportive work environment. There are clear roles and objectives as well as a clear focus to strive to provide world class patient centric care.
You soon realise that you are an integral part of a team of nurses, doctors and allied health professionals. Everyone’s efforts and contributions are acknowledged and valued. There was is constructive critique and everyone is supported to reflect upon their work.
The placement offers are ample training opportunities; a weekly dedicated glaucoma teaching session, ad-hog teaching during clinics, a laser clinic and of course surgical training. During that session I was guided and supported to perform multiple complex surgeries.
Mr Gurjeet Jutley was physically present at Oxford eye hospital on Tuesdays where I worked alongside him in the glaucoma specialist clinic in the morning and afternoon.Thursday morning, he was supervising the work at the emergency department. Wednesday he runs a clinic atWitney. On Friday mornings Mr Jutley has an operating list in Oxford and all allocated trainees and fellow actively participate.
