We are looking for two Paediatric Consultants to join the enthusiastic and friendly Paediatric department in Wigan. There are close links between the community and acute Paediatric services with some colleagues doing hybrid roles across both services. We are looking for forward thinking individuals to join our team.
These are new posts aiming to support consultant delivered integrated paediatric care in community and hospital. It is anticipated that the post holder will have or develop a specialist interest which would complement those of the current team.
The postholders will contribute to the delivery of acute Paediat-ric/Neonatal Care at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary and there will be a Community Paediatric component in keeping with candidates’ prior training and willingness to develop skills in this domain.
The postholders will provide resident Consultant cover in the evening and weekends (no night-time duties) mainly with the support of a middle-grade and alongside an on-call Consultant colleague. This is envisaged to further enhance the quality of care on offer.
You must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a licence to practise and be on the Specialist Register, or be within 6 months of attaining your CCT or equivalent at the interview stage.
