Main duties of the job

The candidate will be required to provide a comprehensive service covering all aspects of the specialty and will be expected to collaborate with the lead clinician in the management and development of the neonatal service. Previous experience in hospital management would be a benefit.

A 10 PA profile would cover the following duties:

The 5 consultants follow a cycle of attending or non-attending which can be variable. Attending blocks will be 2 weeks each of NICU attending followed by 2 weeks non-attending then 2 weeks of SCBU attending. The attending Consultant will be responsible for the clinical management during this time and will lead/supervise ward rounds and clinical and unit management meetings. Attending weeks will be classed at DCC (11.25 for NICU plus on call and 11.25 for SCBU plus on-call)

During non-attending weeks, time will be devoted to outpatient work, clerical/administrative work, teaching, research, educational supervisor roles, audit and other management tasks. Annual and Study leave is taken in non-attending weeks. The 2 non-attending blocks each of 2 weeks allow for a 6PA week almost entirely for supporting PAs. Time taken as absent will be in discussion with the other consultants to ensure that a full service is available daily throughout the year.

The full rota will equate to 28PA for direct clinical care and 12 for supporting PAs over a 4 week cycle.
