Applications are invited for the post of Consultant in Neonatal Transport Medicine at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We seek to appoint 3 dynamic Clinicians to join a team of Consultants in the Acute Neonatal Transport team.

The appointee’s will provide clinical leadership, specialist advice and multi-disciplinary management for the Neonatal Transport team across the region.

The Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) for the East of England is one of the busiest neonatal transfer teams in the UK providing emergency and elective transfers 24/7, 365 days a year. This is an exciting time to join the team as funding of £128m has been secured for a new children’s hospital in Cambridge, set to open in 2023.

Plans for a new Regional Paediatric Intensive Care Retrieval Service are now well advanced and will offer a fantastic opportunity for collaborative working across both areas. The combined service will be called the Paediatric and Neonatal Decision Support and Retrieval Service (PaNDR) and will enable the East of England to take a leading role in innovative transport medicine. 

The Neonatal Unit in Cambridge is one of three tertiary level units in the East of England Neonatal Operational Delivery Network.  We have close links with the rest of the network including two other Tertiary Units. The Unit has a capacity of 52 cots and currently operates at 40 cots (28 ITU/HDU and 12 SCBU) with just under 6,000 inborn deliveries. As well as comprehensive Neonatal Intensive Care, the Unit provides a Service for the high risk Maternal and Fetal Medicine teams, specialist Neonatal Surgery and Neurosurgery. We have close links with the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and the University Department of Paediatrics.

As part of our commitment to supporting the medical workforce in the part they play in delivering an excellent caring service to patients, all newly appointed Consultants attend our five-day Consultant Development programme within a year of joining the Trust. Leadership is a key requirement of doctors’ professional work and this innovative programme is designed to support Consultants to hone the leadership and management skills they need to succeed at CUH.
