This is an excellent opportunity for a Consultant in Spinal Injuries to join our highly motivated and cohesive team based at the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries, Oswestry, Shropshire.

The Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries is a supra-regional centre for management of patients with spinal cord injury. The philosophy of the Centre is to provide a holistic approach to the consequences of spinal cord lesions which produce multisystem physical dysfunction and multi-factorial lifestyle implications. The Centre takes an effective multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitative care.

As a leading Orthopaedic provider and established Foundation Trust, we cultivate an environment where our staff become pioneers in their field.

With a reputation for innovation, the Trust provides a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal surgical, medical and rehabilitation services locally, nationally and internationally. We are at the cutting edge of medical
excellence, with a growing research programme.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who are on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register in Rehabilitation Medicine or who will be within six months of obtaining their CCT at the time of interview. In addition applicants should demonstrate within their application their wide experience in aspects of either medicine or surgery relevant to spinal cord paralysis rehabilitation medicine and ability to manage patients with acute spinal cord injury and complex late complications. 

Shropshire is a perfect blend of old and new. With the rolling countryside and fantastic links to Birmingham and the North West, you can live in a beautiful place that’s well connected. You’ll never be short of something to do – quaint towns are scattered across the county with beautiful scenery and award winning food, hiking and walking opportunities combined with a rich history of ancient civilisations from the Iron Age hillfort in Oswestry to the ruins of a roman city in Wroxeter.

Informal enquiries are welcome. Please contact Mr Joy Chowdhury, Clinical Lead on 01691 404185.
