We are pleased to be able to offer this fixed term post of Senior Clinical Fellow. The post is available immediately up until September 2022.

This post would allow training in either echocardiography or enhanced neurodevelopmental assessment depending on the preference of the applicant.

The post allocated dedicated time for supporting professional activities. These will be distributed as follows:

  1. The departmental weekly teaching program (Thursday afternoon)
  2. The Tuesday 'grand round'
  3. The remainder to be delivered flexibly with in the week to allow training and attendance in outpatient clinic activity related to neurodevelopment or echocardiography.

It is highly desirable that candidates have previous experience of working in the NHS with knowledge of NHS working practices and systems or equivalent. It would be useful, though not mandatory, to have previous paediatric or neonatal experience.

The neonatal unit at Singleton Hospital is a busy level 3 unit. Currently there are 14 critical care and 10 special care cots. There are 11 neonatal consultants in post. In addition to deanery trainees, middle grade cover is provided by highly trained ANNPs, resident consultants and MTI trainees and senior clinical fellows. The unit was recently fully refurbished to very high standards.

Critical care cot provision is expected to increase following service reconfiguration within the Health Board. We have recently opened a state of the art new transitional care facility and special care area adjacent to the refurbished postnatal ward. The unit is the lead level 3 unit for the South West Wales and functions as part of the Wales Neonatal Network. The unit supports an area with a birth rate of around 10000 deliveries and attracts high risk infants requiring critical care from the local population and elsewhere in the network. In 2018, there were 1719 days of intensive care, 2086 days of high dependency care and 3224 days of special care.
