Consultant in Acute Paediatrics
Acute and General Paediatricians are at the heart of safe and effective care for children and adolescents. Help us to establish Acute Paediatrics as a specialty in its own right by joining a team of individuals dedicated to promoting excellence in the care of children at CUHFT.
We are looking for a dedicated and expert Acute Paediatrician to join our existing team of 9 consultants to provide emergency, out-patient and in-patient care for children with acute/general paediatric conditions.
We welcome individuals with special areas of interest and expertise, as well as those who wish to work full- or part-time (7.5-10PAs).
You will join a neonatal and paediatric service with over 80 consultants in different specialties caring for children, aiming to deliver outstanding acute and specialist paediatric training.
The successful candidate will join a new acute paediatric team with enthusiasm for continuous improvement, excellent clinical outcomes and responsive care.
The 1:10 will rota includes an acute consultant of the week, weekend ward round, ED cover and 1:10 evenings in ED (5-10pm), followed by non-resident on-call cover for acute paediatrics. There is separate out-of-hours cover for most paediatric specialties.
We look for people who are willing to go the extra mile, not because they are asked to, but because they are committed to being part of a healthcare team that delivers an excellent caring service to our patients.
