People & Team

People & Team

We all work really well together as a team and are often referred to as the ‘SpaMedica family’; we understand our roles, our teams and the part we play in delivering our first-class services.

As a fast-growing company, we’re looking for people who can support our growth and change; that means you’ll be dynamic, confident and are always looking for ways to make us better. If you’re looking for ordinary, steady or ‘run of the mill’ then SpaMedica probably isn’t for you. So only the bold and brave should read on…

If we were to try and describe the type of people who work here and what SpaMedica is about we would say:

  • We’re hard working, but we really enjoy what we do
  • We’re friendly and you’ll see lots of smiles around the place
  • We work really well together as a team, our CEO has always wanted a ‘family-feel’ for the company and it does still feel that way, even though we’re growing rapidly (now over 250 staff, and next week it will be more!)
  • We’re growing, evolving and improving all the time and are looking for people who want to grow with us
  • We take responsibility and are confident enough to ‘hold our hands up’ when things don’t go quite right, so we can be better in the future
  • We’re kind, caring and helpful - to each other and our patients
  • Our patients think we’re doing a great job – their feedback is excellent, we’re rated as a five- star service on NHS Choices and receive loads of great testimonials and thank you cards each week!
  • We want to be (and will be with your help) recognised as one of the best healthcare brands in the UK
  • We love new ideas and creativity

So that's who we are, so let’s meet some of the people who work here:

  • Jess

    Jessica is the Senior Patient-Co-ordinator at the SpaMedica headquarters in Bolton. She ensures that the patients have a pleasant experience throughout their visits to SpaMedica. She supports the Patient Co-Ordinators in making our patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their journey with us. Jessica is enthusiastic and promotes a warm, welcoming atmosphere throughout to reassure any patient nerves.

  • Alex

    Alex plays an important role as SpaMedica’s Specialty Doctor, with more than eight years’ experience in healthcare. He is passionate about research and is currently involved in the Global Vision Database and the UK National Eye Health Survey. Alex provides medical advice and support to our patients across all our sites, including complex pre-operative and post-operative patients, and performing YAG laser.

  • Gemma

    Gemma has worked in the ophthalmic industry for over 9 years, joining our SpaMedica team 5 years ago. Gemma is responsible for scheduling all clinical activity across each of our hospitals. She effectively manages rotas for Consultants, Optometrists and all Clinical staff, ensuring that we have the correct skill mix of staff at each hospital to deliver the outstanding patient care we pride ourselves on.

  • Tom

    Tom is an experienced Optometrist and has held an advanced clinical role for a number of years. He uses his experience to provide the highest possible standard of care for all his patients.
