We seek an enthusiastic and forward thinking anaesthetist for a post as a Consultant Anaesthetist with an interest in Intensive Care Medicine, where you will have the opportunity to further develop your interest and other sub-specialty interests in Anaesthesia to complement the existing interests of the department.

University Hospital Crosshouse currently has 6 Level 3 beds and 16 Level 2 beds located separately, with 10 intensive care consultants. The local Acute Service Review has plans to develop a 24 bedded Combined Critical Care Facility, with co-location of ICU, surgical HDU and medical HDU.

The T&Cs are those determined by the New Consultant Contract (Scotland) 2004, offered on a 10 PA basis. Further EPAs may be available subject to service requirements.  The post will involve participation in the Intensive Care On-Call rota which is a 1:10 rota and a critical care patient transfer rota 1:25 (plus prospective cover).  Following a recent change to working patterns, a single ICU Consultant now provides daytime cover for the ICU for a full week at a time.

Dual accreditation in anaesthesia and ICM preferable.   Applicants with CCT in anaesthesia and who can demonstrate relevant experience and training in intensive care medicine will be eligible to apply. 

For information and informal visits, please contact Dr M Watson, Clinical Director, Tel: 01563 827172
