Consultant Physician in Respiratory and General Medicine
Full time (10PA, including up to 2 SPA) or Part time
Salary Scale - £91,474 - £121,548 per annum (pro rata)
We are delighted to offer an opportunity for a highly motivated, ambitious individual to join our respiratory team at the Forth Valley Hospital.
The Respiratory service is a fully integrated unit with all members contributing to a team-based approach to patient care. This appointment will play an essential role in the continuing development and redesign of Respiratory services. At present, all of the existing Respiratory Consultants contribute to the acute general medical receiving rota, and it is expected that this appointment will carry a similar responsibility.
You can look forward to a warm welcome and strong support from colleagues. Our hospital is situated in the heart of Scotland, nestled against the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and close to vibrant towns that are richly endowed with excellent cultural and sporting facilities, offering good transport links to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop a subspecialty interest to complement the other members of the department and will participate in the provision of Respiratory services to the local population. We are especially interested in redesigning our asthma and sleep services.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the Department and meet key staff. For an informal discussion and further information regarding the opportunity and Respiratory services, please contact Dr Maria Wilczynska, Clinical Lead Respiratory Medicine on 01324 567576 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Fraser Wood, Lung cancer lead on 01324 566826 or email@example.com.

Alternatively, applicants should possess a CESR / CESR (CP) at the time of interview.
