Applications are invited for a Consultant in Paediatric Intensive Care and Paediatric Anaesthetics at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).

We seek to appoint a dynamic clinician to join a team of Consultant Paediatric Intensivist’s and Anaesthetists in this busy regional centre.

This is an exciting time to join the team as there is funding of £128m for a new children’s hospital in Cambridge to open in 2023. Plans for a new regional Paediatric Intensive Care Retrieval Service are now well advanced.

The appointee’s will provide clinical leadership, specialist advice and multi-disciplinary management for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and Paediatric Anaesthesia. Our Paediatric Intensive Care Unit supports a wide range of medical and surgical specialties, major trauma, education and research. 

Services include specialist surgery such as Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Urology, Orthopaedics, Scoliosis Surgery, Plastic and Cleft Surgery, Paediatric General Surgery, and Oncology Surgery.  Medical services supported include Acute Paediatrics, Endocrinology, Respiratory, Immunology, Rheumatology, Haematology, Oncology, Allergy, Neurology, and Gastroenterology.

Paediatric Anaesthesia consists of a sub-specialty cohort of Anaesthetists who possess the necessary clinical skills to provide the highest levels of anaesthetic care.

There are close links with the University Department of Paediatrics and the Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The Consultant will join a close team of Nurses, Physiotherapists, Dieticians, SLT, Psychologists, Counsellors and other members of the multidisciplinary team as well as five other Consultants.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust includes Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie Hospitals. We are one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the country with an outstanding reputation that is down to the exceptional people that work here.

Our philosophy is to keep the patient at the heart of everything we do. Every person that works for the Trust, regardless of their role, comes into contact with our patients and visitors and is expected to uphold our values of Together - Safe, Kind, Excellent at all times.

We look for people who are willing to go the extra mile, not because they are asked to, but because they are committed to being part of a healthcare team that delivers an excellent caring service to our patients.

You will be fully registered with the GMC or be within six months of award of CCT in Anaesthesia, or Paediatric Intensive Care at the time of interview.  Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full-time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.
