Join the team at Peterborough City Hospital as our new Locum Consultant Neurologist on a fixed-term assignment to continue building your future career.

Based within the Neurology Services team, you will work closely with a team of five Consultant Neurologists aiming to deliver comprehensive high-quality neurology services such as Neurology Outpatient Services, Acute Neurology Services including inpatient ward referrals, and Speciality Neurology Services.

We are planning to expand our Neurology service to meet our local communities' needs. Working in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team, your initiatives will contribute to the clinical development of an excellent and sustainable neurology service for the local community.

You will have the great opportunity to work and learn from Neurology specialists from our Regional Neurosciences Centre at Addenbrooke's Hospital. You will be encouraged in joining our current Consultants in providing specialist outpatient and inpatient care at Addenbrooke's Hospital under Honorary Contracts.

We are committed to your well-being, and your personal and professional development by offering flexible working options and career development courses. We are inviting any applicants wishing to work more flexibly, as this may be accommodated by negotiation. Part-time and job-share applicants are welcome.

The final timetable will be agreed with Consultant Colleagues and the Clinical Lead, and reviewed after three months. On Call commitments are not included.

Primarily, you will provide outpatient care. However, the job plan could be changed to accommodate dedicated inpatient referral sessions as agreed with the clinical team.

You will undertake up to five general neurology outpatient clinics per week, as well as one virtual triage clinic (two hours) where all referrals to the service are triaged.

You will participate in Departmental meetings, presentations, clinical audit and Trust Clinical Governance activities, as well as performing Appraisals/Revalidations, job planning and approved CPD activity. You will attend Addenbrooke's Hospital for CPD, which includes a weekly Clinical Neurology and Neuroscience meeting (with regular nationally and internationally renowned speakers), audit, and clinical governance.
