London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust are pleased to offer a number of Medical Examiner posts (1-2 PAs each), to support the expansion of the Medical Examiner (ME) service.  The ME service is currently scrutinising deaths on the acute sites across the Trust, and will soon be incorporating deaths within the local community. 

The posts will be attached to the Northwick Park Hospital and Ealing Hospital sites, with the PAs to be split between the two sites.   

The successful candidates will join an established team of MEs in order to scrutinise both hospital and community deaths.  You will need to be skilled in the critical appraisal of clinical notes while also being able to speak with bereaved families in a sensitive and sympathetic manner.  The role will also require communication with other professionals within and outside of the Trust including Consultants, GPs and Coroner's Offices.  

It is a requirement of the role that you are licenced to practice in the UK by the GMC.  Candidates will also be expected to complete the mandatory components of the national online medical examiner curriculum prior to taking up the post. Face-to-face training must be completed within the first six months of being in post.  Details of this, as well as further information on the Medical Examiner role, can be found via this link to the Royal College of Pathologists https://www.rcpath.org/profession/medical-examiners.html
