Consultant General Physician
We are seeking to appoint a Consultant General Physician with an interest in Acute Medicine.
This is a replacement Consultant post following the retirement of a Consultant Physician in general medicine with a special interest in renal medicine. The successful candidate will integrate with the existing consultant colleagues and provide clinical excellence in Acute Medicine.
The post holder will be expected to be on the GMC Specialist Register for General Medicine or Acute Medicine with considerable experience in both and would ideally have dual accreditation. The appointee will be expected to take part in the GIM on call rota for which they are first on-call without the support of junior doctors.
Guernsey does not have junior doctors and so consultants have more direct patient involvement and are able to provide excellent continuity of care. There is excellent support from the radiology department, with easy availability of MRI and CT. A new state of the art CT scanner and SPECT-CT was installed in 2019. The MRI scanner is due to be upgraded in 2020.
The Medical Specialist Group is a partnership of currently 50 Consultants, which, under contract, provides specialist medical services to the Guernsey Health Service under a health care model that is different and separate to the NHS.
There are opportunities for private practice within the job plan and 10 days of fully funded study leave annually. The new appointee will be encouraged to develop an off-island attachment with a tertiary centre to maintain expertise.
Other benefits include a full relocation package; private health insurance and a generous salary (NB the income tax rate for Guernsey is currently 20% with no higher rates).
The Princess Elizabeth Hospital is a modern hospital of approximately 145 beds and there are strong clinical links with UK mainland centres, particularly Southampton General Hospital and Kings College Hospital.
Guernsey offers an outdoor lifestyle with outstanding leisure facilities and excellent provision of schools in both state and private sectors.
Closing Date: 1st October 2020 (subject to change) Interviews: TBC
