Consultant in General Paediatrics and Named Doctor for Safeguarding at Great Ormond Street Hospital (10 PAs)

This is a 10 PA Post (5 PAs Named Doctor for Safeguarding and 5 PAs General Paediatrics)

We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic General Paediatric Consultant and Named Doctor for Safeguarding who will support and join the existing team (of 8 consultants, 6 WTEs) in shaping the future of General Paediatric and Safeguarding services at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  

Half of the post will be dedicated to provide a General Paediatric attending service for the hospital, with special attention to supporting the surgical specialties.

The other half of the post will cover the Named Doctor for Safeguarding Children role. This is a great opportunity for someone with a keen interest and experience in Safeguarding Children to further build on the service which has been developed over the past years. The role is strongly supported by the Named Nurse for Safeguarding Children and an experienced team of safeguarding advisors and social workers as well as the General Paediatric team. 

You will also be part of a 24/7 safeguarding rota.

This is an exciting time to join the General Paediatric team at GOSH which is rapidly evolving with huge opportunities. Please see job description for greater detail.

You will need to be in possession of a CCT in Paediatrics (or equivalent) and have at least 6 months experience as a Named Doctor for Safeguarding.

The trust encourages flexible working, and should you wish to work less than full time it would be possible to reduce the number of General Paediatric PAs subject to discussions.

For further information, please contact Dr Imke Meyer-Parsonson, Clinical Lead, General Paediatrics, on 020 7405 9200, Extension 1291 or 1269, Sian Pincott, Chief of Service on 020 7405 9200, Extension 5170, Tracey Luckett, Chief Nurse via Executive PA on Ext. 0231, Sophia Varadkar, Deputy Medical Director via Executive PA on Ext.5257 or Michelle Nightingale, Named Nurse via PA on Ext. 5649.

Applications should be submitted electronically via:
