Are you a Paediatric Registrar either interested in developing a clinical sub-specialty experience or looking for a post without on calls?

We are inviting applications for two exciting posts

Post 1 – Specialty Doctor in Paediatrics, standard hours – 2 posts

This post is specifically designed middle grade post involving only standard working hours. There will be opportunity to attend a variety of clinics and support can be offered if the successful candidate chooses to develop a sub-speciality interest. This post, starting as soon as possible, is for 6 months initially and pending satisfactory progression extendable to the full period of 12 months. There is option to rotate to neonates if desired.

Post 2 – Specialty Doctor in Paediatrics with interest in sub-speciality – 2 posts

This post is specifically designed to help develop skills in a chosen sub-specialty out of Diabetes, Allergy, Infectious Diseases, Respiratory, Epilepsy, Community, Safeguarding or Education/ Simulation. The post holder will be expected to participate in the 1 in 13 middle grade rota. Dedicated time will be given to training in the relevant chosen sub-specialty and the successful candidate will be given at least one fixed clinic every week. This post is initially for 6 months and there is possibility of extension to 12 months and option to rotate into neonates if desired.

These posts are at middle grade level designed to provide training in Paediatrics at City Hospital, Birmingham and Sandwell General Hospital, West Bromwich. Prior experience in the UK is essential. Six months experience in a designated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is desirable although the job does not involve cover for a neonatal unit. The successful candidate must also possess MRCPCH Part 1 and have obtained PALS or APLS accreditation.

SWBH is going through a period of significant change and these posts are intended to further develop the management of patients presenting with acute problems.

Have you got the imagination and drive to be part of the team delivering a vision of cutting-edge 21st Century emergency healthcare?
Plans are at an advanced stage for the Trust to host a single site acute service - the Midland Metropolitan Hospital. This would provide significant benefits with specialist services co-located, supporting one of the largest Emergency Care single site services in Europe. The new hospital will have one of the busiest emergency departments in the country. To deal with this a new computer system is being implemented as part of a major service redesign across both emergency departments and the assessment units. A number of other transformational projects are underway to further improve care.

Currently, City Hospital sees 110,000 patients and Sandwell Hospital sees 82,000 patients per annum. Both departments are Trauma Units with close links to their Major Trauma Centre. The Hyper Acute Stroke Unit is at Sandwell General Hospital and is supported by Emergency & Acute Medicine.

Interviews will take place 5th April 2019.

For an informal discussion please contact Dr Meena Bandhakavi, Consultant Paediatrician, on 0121 507 4608 or acting Clinical director Dr Maria Atkinson 0121 554301.
