Job Details

Applications are invited for Consultant Physicians in Acute Medicine and sub-specialty of choice to work across the University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough sites in Cardiff.

The hospitals, which are some of the largest in the UK, provide a full range of secondary care services to the local population and provide tertiary care facilities for the region and wider afield across Wales.

These appointments represent a significant investment by the UHB into transforming Acute Medicine and provides an exciting opportunity for appointees to broaden the existing sub-specialty mix in acute medicine of stroke, diabetes & endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, respiratory medicine, cardiology, pharmacology, and renal medicine. Acute Physicians play a central role in developing and improving pathways as well as clinical outcomes for medical patients in the Unscheduled Care stream and in-patients within the hospital.

You will be able to take advantage of the excellent Consultant contract for Wales. The basic salary range for this post is 86,063 per annum to 111,732 per annum plus a further 26,672 per annum available in Commitment Awards. Consultants in Wales paid on one of the first three points of the substantive Consultant pay scale also receive a Wales recruitment incentive payment.

Main duties of the job

Post holders will work a varied job plan which will include clinical sessions in the Emergency Department / Assessment Unit, Same Day Emergency Care Unit, Virtual ward, and Short Stay Units. SPA allowance will also enable CPD to maintain excellent professional skills and to develop innovative services.

On-call frequency is currently one evening per month followed by an early morning shift every 17 days followed by one evening session including on-call from home after 10pm after another 17 days. This arrangement may change as acute medical services develop.

Two sessions will be reserved, if required and suitably trained, for work in another specialty of choice, further strengthening the close relationship between acute medicine and other medical specialties.

It is anticipated that post holders will increasingly drive new ways of working with colleagues in the Emergency Unit, Primary Care, and in-patient specialties. Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is recognised as a teaching centre of excellence in a wide range of clinical services.

Although these posts are full-time, applications are also encouraged from applicants who require flexible working arrangements.

Applicants should either be on the Specialist Register or be a Specialist Registrar within 6 months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT / CESR(CP) at the time of interview.
