Clinical Fellows (Middle Grade) in Neonatal Medicine and Neonatal
Applications are invited for Clinical Fellows (Middle Grade) in Neonatal Medicine and Neonatal Transport Fellowship based at Addenbrooke's Hospital part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).
These posts are available to commence as soon as possible for 12 months in the first instance. The successful candidate will be based for 6-12 months on the neonatal unit at CUH and 6-12 months with the Neonatal Transfer Team whose base is also at CUH. There may be further opportunities for the successful candidate to further develop skills specific to PICU.
The large regional tertiary NICU at CUH delivers medical and surgical neonatal care plus expertise in other neonatal specialities including neurosurgery, neurology, fetal medicine, genetics and perinatal pathology. The department is undergoing significant expansion. A new perinatal centre opened in September 2012. Currently there are 28 ITU /HDU and 12 SCBU cots. The Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) for the East of England is one of the busiest neonatal transfer teams in the UK providing emergency and elective transfers 24/7, 365 days a year.
Training received includes the competencies for transferring sick medical and surgical newborns and the associated complex and sensitive communication issues including those with the family and local hospitals. ANTS has state of the art, new and dedicated equipment including four purpose built neonatal ambulances and incubators plus up-to- date techniques and services including inhaled nitric oxide, end tidal CO2 monitoring, active cooling providing therapeutic hypothermia during transfer and high flow nasal cannula therapy.
The Neonatal Department has an active programme of research in neonatal neuroscience, haematology, cardio-respiratory and endocrinology and this post may be suitable for the introduction of motivated individuals to the research experience.
Support for study leave will be given. Participation in NICU and ANTS audit activities is strongly encouraged. There are also business and postgraduate medical programmes, including NICU, surgery, perinatal, fetal medicine, risk, neurology, infant mortality and morbidity meetings. The successful applicant will receive the same training and educational experience in Neonatal Medicine as all other Trainees.
Candidates should have at least six months previous experience working at middle grade level in a tertiary neonatal unit. MRCP/MRCPCH or equivalent is desirable.
The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).
