Since this is a partial replacement and partial new post, the candidate will have the opportunity to set up new service or pursue existing specialist interests, should they wish. The clinical work consists mainly of outpatient work, but inpatient consults do form a part of every consultant’s job plan.

The candidate will be joining an enthusiastic, friendly, and growing local department. We also have established networks with many Centres of National Excellence and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford is our Tertiary Centre. We have high quality, supportive primary care colleagues including one with a specialist interest in rheumatology (GPwSI). The wider hospital community works closely with rheumatology for cross-speciality cases.

In addition to clinical work, there ample are opportunities for research and teaching, both undergraduate and post-graduate. These can be discussed as a part of the job planning process.

We are looking for a colleague to both complement the existing team but also to being their own ideas, input, and professional expertise to the department.

The job plan on appointment will consist of a split of 7.5:2.5 DCC/SPA. The SPA component is made up of core activities (appraisal, revalidation, CME, routine departmental meetings etc.) and non-core activities. Non-core activities are discussed and agreed within the Trust (via an agreed tariff and, on occasion, through ad personal agreement). Non-core SPA may reflect activities such as educational supervision, research, leadership, and quality improvement. Following appointment, non-core SPA may be used to participate in our consultant development programme, or in acquiring or consolidating specific skills and expertise. Non-core SPA is only available if specific activities and objectives are mutually agreed in job planning.

Through its inclusive and comprehensive job planning process, the trust commits to providing equitable working conditions to medical colleagues across specialties and their sub-specialties. Delivery of job plans, whilst owned by consultants and their Clinical Service Unit Leads, is overseen by the Divisional Director and subject to peer challenge at divisional level, thus enabling a further layer objectivity to our commitment in this regard.
