East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a Consultant Paediatrician / Clinical Director for our newly formed Children’s Health Care Group, one of eight care groups across our Trust. You will join our clinically led organisation at an exciting time for the Trust and the County, taking a leading and influential role in delivering care for children and young people across a large organisation.

This new chapter in our exciting story includes the opening of a new medical school for the county with the first students arriving in 2020.
