This post represents an exciting opportunity for a Consultant Rheumatologist to grow our expanding service. There is an opportunity to develop a special interest in rheumatology and related services.

The service currently has 6 Rheumatologists and an Endocrinologist, supported by a specialist multi-disciplinary team of nurses, therapists, pharmacists and administration staff.

In-reach and outreach services are provided across Shropshire, including community provision.

One role will undertake their clinical sessions between the RJAH and Princess Royal Hospital Telford sites; the other role has sessions only at RJAH.

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

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 with MRCP (or equivalent) who are on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register in Rheumatology or who will be within six months of obtaining their CCT at the time of interview. Your application should also demonstrate your competency in the management of patients with rheumatic disease and the delivery of those services.

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 Paula Jeffreson, Divisional Manager for Medicine and Rehab on 01691 40 4686 or Dr R Amarasena, Clinical Lead for Rheumatology on 01691 404592 or Dr S Ho, Clinical Director for Medicine and Rehab on 01691 404686.
