Welcome to the Practice Plus Group, Ophthalmology careers page

My name is John O’Brien and I am the Service Director for this innovative service.

The service we run here is divided into two main areas. Firstly, we run a cataracts and general ophthalmology service in the community at Croft Shifa Health Centre in Rochdale and we also run a mobile-based Macular/AMD service across the North West of England. We were the first community-based service to receive an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the CQC.

We were understandably very proud of this CQC rating but prouder still of the service we give to our patients on an everyday basis- and their feedback lets us know that we are delivering a service valued by those we treat. We are currently using the models of care that have been developed in this service as the template for a significant expansion of the service nationally.

The benefits of working at Practice Plus Group Ophthalmology include; excellent and flexible work life balance, clear career pathways, excellent training and development opportunities, an emphasis on employee wellbeing, excellent clinical facilities, flexible working, clear and transparent clinical leadership and governance structures. The service is large enough to deliver excellence on a sustainable basis but small enough for individual team members to make a real difference to patient care.

On a personal front, I have worked for the company in a number of roles over the last twelve years and have been very happy to make my contribution to our high-quality services in a ‘can do’ environment of like minded professional colleagues.


At Practice Plus Group we take pride in our people and ensure that they have the skills and support to deliver exceptional patient care. A career with us means all of the following and more…
