Consultant Anaesthetists Post

Applications are invited for the posts of Consultant Anaesthetist at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Truro.

We deliver over 30000 anaesthetics per annum in most surgical specialties, critical care and pain management to the 550 000 population of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly; based in Truro, and also incorporating two peripheral hospitals in Hayle and Penzance. 

We are a large district general hospital and retain specialist services that are being centralised in other regions. Our case-mix is varied, suitably challenging, and progressively interesting.

We are looking for a Consultant in Anaesthesia with a broad range of skills to become an active member of a flexible team. Particular experience or expertise in paediatric & general surgery, gynaecology and orthopaedic anaesthesia, or obstetric anaesthesia, would be most attractive. Wider skills in audit and governance, regional anaesthesia or management and leadership would be particularly desirable. Our on-call commitment has evolved to provide the highest quality consultant delivered service whilst responsive to work-life balance. 1 in 18 non-resident on call. 

The Royal Cornwall Hospital is a campus of Exeter Medical School, and provides opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Clinical fellowships in varied anaesthesia disciplines are well established and highly regarded. Our trainees are actively supported in the local Research Network. We are a busy Major Trauma Unit with close interactive relationships with Cornwall Air Ambulance.

We believe success derives from a dedicated high quality substantive workforce with the ultimate work-life balance in the best location in the UK. We have invested actively in coaching and mentoring provision. We’d like you to share our passion for clinician shaped services and welcome you to augment our team.

For new substantive consultants the job plan for this post will include 2.5 SPAs for the first year.

Applicants are required to be on the GMC Specialist Register, or within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT/EU equivalent certification at the time of interview. Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full-time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.

Informal enquiries regarding this post should be addressed to:

Dr Gary Matthews, Specialty Director on 01872 258195 or
