Applications are invited for a Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist with an Interest in Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (1.0 WTE).

The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust is seeking to appoint a Consultant Paediatric Cardiologist with an Interest in Cardiac Magnetic Resonance to be based at the Royal Brompton Hospital. We are a world famous organisation with a proud history in the investigation, treatment and research of heart and lung disease. We are particularly proud of our ability to provide comprehensive specialist care for patients of all ages and their families. The children’s heart service at the Trust is a varied and complex environment, which includes interventional cardiology, fetal cardiology, comprehensive imaging modalities, electrophysiology and congenital surgery.

This post will supplement the existing consultant team within children’s heart disease. Although the post is predominantly based at the Royal Brompton Hospital, regular clinical commitments will be required to support the department’s extensive outreach clinic programme.

In addition of expertise with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, you should have the ability to perform and interpret a comprehensive range of diagnostic investigations and a skill set that includes paediatric transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography. You will be offered mentoring and support to consolidate your skills. It is expected that you’ll be fully trained in paediatric heart disease. 

You must be on or within six months of entry to the Specialist Register and be fully registered with the GMC or will already be an established consultant paediatric cardiologist.
