There are two consultant neurologist posts which are replacement posts funded to facilitate the provision of General Neurology and Specialist services for the West Midlands region and are based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, with the expectation of service delivery across any University Hospitals Birmingham site. It is likely that there will be time spent in a partner centres within the regional neuroscience network, such as Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital (SWBH). This will be determined by individual interests and the needs of the partner sites. The successful candidate will, alongside general neurological duties, provide predominantly outpatient care as well as some inpatient care of adults with a range of neurological conditions and help to co-ordinate the long term care of such patients in the community.
