Mr Nicolas WatsonBM FRCS Eng. (Ophthalmology) FRCOphth | GMC Number: 2941943
Mr Watson is a consultant ophthalmologist, who joined the Medical Specialist Group in June 2016. His previous role was as a consultant ophthalmologist in Great Yarmouth and an honorary senior lecturer at the University of East Anglia, while he has also worked in Aberdeen (including Orkney & Shetland), Birmingham, Ipswich, Portsmouth and Windsor.
After attending Bristol Grammar School, Mr Watson studied medicine at Southampton University and went on to undertake specialist training in Ophthalmology. His particular interests are paediatric ophthalmology and cataract surgery.
With ophthalmology in the NHS becoming more sub-specialised, Mr Watson identified the role in Guernsey as one where he could continue to deliver hands-on care across general ophthalmology and one which presented him with variety and new challenges to allow him to build on his strengths therein.
