Consultant in Anaesthetics (10 PA). King’s College Hospital requires a full-time Consultant Anaesthetist to support the delivery of the Anaesthetic services across the sites within the Trust. 

This post will have an emphasis on providing anaesthetic services for orthopaedic surgery and general/bariatric surgery. 

It is planned that bariatric surgical services will be based at the PRUH site later in 2017 so experience in bariatric anaesthesia would be an advantage. It is envisaged the postholder would provide leave cover in the first instance for these lists. Therefore an element of flexibility within the job plan is expected. 

The individual will also be required to play an active role in the general workload of the Anaesthetic Department while having a significant commitment to teaching and training of junior staff.

The postholder will be based mainly at the PRUH and Orpington sites but must work flexibly across the KCH sites (DH, PRUH, Queen Mary’s Sidcup & Orpington). There will be an average of 8.5 Programmed Activities of Direct Clinical Care, with the remainder being allocated for Supporting Professional and/or other Activities. The postholder will join the General on call rota at PRUH which is a 1 in 12 non resident rota.

The post-holder is required to be fully registered with the General Medical Council and on the Specialist Register at the date of interview, or be on a recognised training programme and within six months of being eligible for inclusion on the Specialist Register.
