Applications are invited for the position of Consultant Urogynaecologist at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. The Gynaecology department is part of the Women’s Services Division.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a strong, forward thinking team of Gynaecologists and professional staff who contribute to the delivery of Women’s Services in Grampian. The centre provides general Gynaecology, Gynae Oncology and Urgynaecological care for the North East of Scotland and has close working links with NHS Highland and NHS Tayside. 

The post is based in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, the principal hospital in Grampian, providing services to the population of Grampian, Orkney and Shetland Islands (population approx 590,000). The University of Aberdeen’s Medical School is co-located on the same site.

We are looking for someone who can bring new and innovative ideas to support our continuing programme of improvement within the department and can contribute to the day to day running of the service. There are many opportunities in the delivery of clinical services, teaching, audit and research within a team of consultants, specialty doctors, middle and junior grade medical staff, and specialist nurses, Allied Health Professionals and clinic and ward based nursing teams. The academic department is well known internationally.

Plans are underway for the build of the new ‘Baird Family Hospital’ which will be operational by 2023 for delivery of Women’s Service and Neonatal Care in Aberdeen. The Gynaecology department will move to this new hospital on the Foresterhill Site along with Breast, Maternity, Neonatal, and Fertility Services.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit www.gmc-uk.org

Those trained in the UK should have evidence of higher specialist training leading to CCT or be within 6 months of confirmed entry from date of interview or eligibility for specialist registration (CESR). Candidates with established Urogynaecology qualifications should be able to demonstrate continuing Urogynaecology involvement in their current post.

Due to the global covid-19 pandemic and the potential impact on progression with training, flexibility will be shown to candidates who may still be working towards Completion of Advanced Training.
