Role Summary

Cardiology is part of the Medical Directorate and is responsible for the investigation and treatment of all forms of adult cardiac disorders. It offers a comprehensive out-patient service to the locality and works closely with consultants from North Devon District Hospital, who are an integral part of the department.

Inpatients are either admitted directly to CCU, and are therefore under the care of the on-call cardiology consultant, or are admitted through the acute medical admissions unit under the care of the acute general physician of the day, with subsequent transfer to one of two cardiology wards. The in-patient service is Consultant led and is committed to delivering the highest possible standards of clinical care. The department operates a consultant of the week system, with daily ward rounds of all new admissions to the cardiology team. The successful candidate will be expected to form part of the consultant of the week system.

The junior medical staff availability is distributed equally between all the consultants.
