The Trust is seeking to appoint a Consultant Plastic Surgeon (10.7 PAs) with an interest in burns to provide consultant services at Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  This is an exciting opportunity for a consultant, working within the Plastics Surgery Department to be part of the regional burns service. The burns service at QVH has a long and proud history, and has provided a world class and innovative service ever since.

The current post also includes sessions at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Pembury, focusing on plastic surgery support for orthoplastic services and perineal reconstruction as well as an on-call commitment with the orthoplastic service at Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, which is the Major Trauma Centre for Sussex. Candidates with other areas of interest should also apply as there will be some flexibility of the non-burns part of the job plan.

Candidates will be expected to actively contribute to the management, teaching, audit and research activities of the department.

Applicants must hold the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons or equivalent, and have completed a period of higher professional training including a fellowship in burns.  Applicants should either possess the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or equivalent or be within 6 months of receiving it. Additionally, on the date of taking up the appointment, the successful candidate’s name must appear on the Specialist Register.

As a Consultant at the Trust, you will share responsibility for the development and delivery of your clinical service.  You will work with colleagues to ensure that your service meets all relevant professional, national, and local service standards and targets.  You will contribute to the delivery of an annual service plan that includes patient activity and revenue during the year as part of the hospital's overall business plan.  You will be expected to take part in audit and publish measures of your outcomes appropriate to specialty.

As a senior figure and role model in the organisation, you will demonstrate the behaviours and values that are expected of all staff: in particular taking pride in the services we offer, showing humanity and consideration for patients and colleagues, and seeking continuous improvement through research, development, and innovation. You will actively engage with the General Medical Council revalidation process.

The job plan provides scheduling details of the clinical activity and clinically related activity components of the job plan that occur at regular times in the week.   Note that in line with Government and NHS objectives, QVH is working towards the provision of seven day services.  This will affect the working lives of most consultant staff and it expects that consultants will approach this need in a collaborative fashion.

*We will consider a Locum in the event that the Consultant is not on the Specialist Register.*
