This substantive post presents an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic department practicing from a newly built, state of the art 800 bed hospital.

You will join the existing 9.48 WTE NHS Consultants providing respiratory care to our population of 500,000 in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

We are first and foremost seeking outstanding candidates to join our team. It should be noted that advanced sleep medicine and care of patients with pulmonary hypertension and cystic fibrosis is led by other hospitals in the region and are not services provided at NBT. We are principally looking for new colleagues with the ambition to help us evolve our models of care to deliver outstanding and personally delivered services to our patients.

The departmental requirement is for 1 WTE new post but applications are welcome from those wishing to consider working less than full time.

We already carry out 7 day working in Respiratory Medicine. The advertised posts do not include General Medical On-Call but this may be available if the successful candidate wishes. 

Applicants are required to be on the Specialist Register for Respiratory Medicine and either G(I)M or ITU or be within six months of obtaining it by the interview date.

Full Registration with the GMC is essential.

The post is based at Southmead Hospital. 

The Trust has teaching status and is linked with the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England. The appointee will be required to reside not more than 30 minutes travel by road for on-call purposes.

Experience and familiarity with UK hospital systems and practices or equivalent is essential.

The successful candidate will be employed under Terms & Conditions of Service for Consultants (England) 2003.

This vacancy is pending confirmation of Royal College approval.
