Consultant in Community Child Health/ Consultant Paediatrician with a Special Interest in Community Paediatrics
2.5 WTE – up to 3 substantive posts
Full time/Part time – up to 40 hrs/week
NHS Tayside is looking to recruit up to 3 enthusiastic and motivated consultants to join our supportive, forward-thinking team. NHS Tayside is the fourth largest healthcare provider in Scotland, providing care to a population of approximately 400,000 spread over a wide geographical area. It is one of only four teaching boards in Scotland and has been one of the top performing health boards in Scotland throughout the Covid pandemic, praised nationally for its forward thinking innovations.
Tayside is one of the few locations in the UK which combines the best of both worlds – city facilities in Dundee & Perth on a friendly community scale, and easy access to some of the most stunning countryside in Scotland. Dundee is the sunniest city in Scotland, with excellent road and rail links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, and London just over an hour by air from Dundee airport. St. Andrews and it's world famous golf courses are only a short drive away. There is a vibrant arts scene in Dundee, including the “V&A at Dundee”, and scope for almost any outdoor activity in the surrounding countryside, including golf, hill walking, skiing, cycling and water sports.
We are seeking to recruit up to 3 Consultants with an interest in Community Paediatrics. Development of a specific interest in Complex Neuro-disability, Neuro-developmental assessment, Adoption & Fostering, Paediatric Audiology, Visual Impairment or Child Protection may be of advantage. There is also the opportunity for some acute work as part of one of these posts. All posts include 2 PAs for supporting professional activities (pro-rata). Successful applicants are likely to be based in either Perth or Angus, with the expectation that some sessions would be worked within Dundee. We welcome applications from doctors wishing to work less than full-time and those wishing to pursue further training to develop a specialist interest, including Paediatric Audiology, Visual Impairment and Complex Disability. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact us for an informal discussion.
Applicants should have full GMC registration and a licence to practise, membership of the RCPCPH, be registered with the GMC and on the specialist register or be within 6 months of the anticipated award of a CCT or CESR (CP) at the time of interview. If you have appropriate specialist training and experience but are not listed on the GMC Specialist Register you can be considered for a Locum Consultant post (up to 12 months) if no substantive Consultant appointment is made. Whilst in locum employment, you can apply to obtain a CESR and enter onto the Specialist Register.
