Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Anaesthetist with General Interest and Consultant Anaesthetist with specialist interest in Paediatric Anaesthesia, based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

The successful candidates will join an expanding, innovative and dynamic department of 85 substantive Consultants, 32 trainees and 15 Senior Clinical Fellows/Clinical Fellows, providing anaesthetic services in this thriving modern teaching hospital. We are the local hospital for people living in the Cambridge area and a regional/supra-regional referral centre for a number of specialties, including cancer surgery, neurosurgery, transplantation, plastic surgery, vascular and paediatrics. In addition, this post will have involvement in the Major Trauma Centre, which is the hub covering East Anglia. As a successful teaching hospital, there is unparalleled capacity for teaching, including involvement in the high fidelity simulation centre, and research within the department as well as the wider biomedical campus. Whenever possible, interest in subspecialty experience will be supported.

Plans are well underway for the development of a dedicated, stand-alone Children’s Hospital on the Campus with over £100 million secured in funding. This will be a new purpose-built facility to meet the needs of the region’s youngest patients, integrating mental and physical health and combining the highest quality services with world class science and research.

We are the regional centre for paediatric surgery, with a 40 bedded neonatal unit (12 ICU, 16 HDU and 12 SCBU) and a 13 bedded PICU. Paediatric Anaesthetists cover a large number of complex cases within a range of subspecialties including neonatal surgery, general paediatric surgery, neurosurgery, urology, plastics including clefts, ENT, maxillofacial and trauma. The successful candidate will cover primarily paediatric theatres and on-call commitment to paediatrics. Some sessions will be delivering adult sessions.

Addenbrooke’s is the teaching hospital for the University of Cambridge and is a flagship NHS hospital having achieved NHS Foundation Trust status in July 2004. It has strong international links particularly through the University and it is a world-class centre for medical research.
