We are looking for 2 acute paediatric consultants to join our dynamic and friendly department at the West Middlesex University Hospital.

This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we expand our consultant team. This post forms part of our newly designed consultant rota with attending weeks covering the general paediatric and acute pathway including short stay unit. All consultants participate in the acute out of hours rota providing a resident late shift (1700-2130) and non-resident on call, both 1:15. In addition this post will give the opportunity to provide clinics according to interest.

Main duties of the job

The paediatric department at the West Middlesex site is a busy local general hospital providing high quality paediatric care for the local population. The unit comprises general paediatric in patient ward (Starlight), a dedicated paediatric short stay unit (PSSU), day case unit (Sunshine) and paediatric outpatient facilities. We work closely with our colleagues in the paediatric emergency department, including dedicated PEM consultant team, providing assessment and care for acutely unwell children. We have recently a launched community based, nurse-led hospital at home service and the post-holder will have opportunities for innovation and leadership within the ambulatory service.

We are recognised as a popular training unit and support a large number of paediatric and GP trainees as well as teaching medical students. There is scope to develop interests in teaching, education and educational supervision.

The successful applicant will join our team providing excellent paediatric care to our local children and families.

We are a friendly and supportive team within a trust that benefits from a wide range of coaching and leadership programs to support professional development.
