There is currently one whole time post available or part time rheumatology post.

All posts are offered on a whole time or part time basis however should the candidate choose to work part time the post could be full time rheumatology without general medicine.  An annual cycle of job plan reviews with all consultants has been implemented.  In accordance with the national guidance, the standard whole-time contract is for 10 programmed activities per week. However, it may be possible with agreement of the postholder to contract for 1 or 2 programmed activities above the standard contract.  The job plan should be regarded as a provisional timetable; we will agree with new appointees the precise scheduling of all activities, including the balance between direct clinical care duties and those related to supporting professional activities.

This post will be a replacement post for Dr Clive Kelly who retired in June 2017. The post can be full time general medicine and rheumatology or part time pure rheumatology. The post will be primarily based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead.

The emphasis will be on clinical rheumatology. However, speciality interests are welcomed with existing members of the Department currently expressing interests in inflammatory joint disease, nerve conduction studies, systemic disease, hypermobility, teaching and ultrasound.
