This exciting post would be suitable for an ST1-2 level or more senior equivalent who has completed Foundation training or core medical training (or equivalent), and wishes to gain further experience in Stroke Medicine or Neurology, perhaps with a view to pursuing related ST3 training.

Out of hours, the post holder covers the inpatient stroke and neurology beds and deals with new admissions including thrombolysis calls from A& E with support from a HASU retrieval nurse (24/7 rota) and full consultant support on both sides.

All departments have on-going clinical audit projects. There are numerous educational opportunities at the Royal London Hospital.
