In this role, Dawn will maximise teleophthalmology opportunities, initially piloting a solution, within medical retina in at Moorfields Eye Centre at Croydon University Hospital, before rolling it out across sub-specialities and sites. These changes will be facilitated at the trust before identifying national and global opportunities for deployment. Earlier this year Dawn Sim was awarded the Moorfields Eye Charity Innovation Award for her work in the field of teleophthalmology at the Moorfields Stars award ceremony. We are proud to support Dawn and congratulate her on this new appointment.

Peter will provide management, coaching and professional guidance to clinicians on technology opportunities which support the establishment and execution of innovative processes and standards deployment.
