About us

Walsall Manor Paediatrics department is a very supportive department and when appointed you will be allocated a consultant to support your professional development. The department has an excellent reputation for training and was rated by the GMC as in the top quartile for teaching in the country. Our current doctors say they are well supported and the consultants are very approachable. This is in part, a consequence of the resident consultant model, which means they are present on the shop floor 70% of the time. Specialty doctors are highly encouraged to develop and achieve their career goals, with 10 trust grade doctors going into training posts in the last few year and a further four having successfully achieved entry into the specialist register via the CESR route. Two of these are now highly valued consultants in the department.

We are a friendly, cohesive team with regular formal and informal meetings. We have an open-door policy for ad hoc conversations and advice and all consultants have sub-specialty interests including one who has an integral role in emergency department. Moreover, as a combined community and acute hospital, we have close liaison with community paediatrics, offering another opportunity for your comprehensive training.

We are an integrated organisation providing both community and hospital services within the local health economy with a combined total income of just over £220 million.
