Applications are invited for a whole-time or part-time Consultant in Paediatric Cardiology with Expertise and an interest in imaging. This is a new post and will enhance the current substantive team of NHS and academic staff of the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre and The Childrens hospital. The post is based at the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre (EMCHC), at Glenfield Hospital. An integrated congenital heart disease team delivers the service within a single specialist hospital setting. The post holder will join eight other paediatric cardiologists and our adult congenital cardiology team to contribute to the life-time care model for congenital heart disease patients that EMCHC prides itself on.

The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust consists of three acute teaching hospitals in Leicester. It is fully committed to Continuing Medical Education for consultants.

Applicants need to be fully accredited for Higher Specialist Training or eligible for inclusion on the Specialist Register. The successful appointee will be expected to participate in general paediatric cardiac clinics and on-calls, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research and clinical audit. They will be required to undertake management duties and work in a multidisciplinary team. As this post is regulated by the Protection of Children Act 1999, The Criminal Justice Courts Act 2000 and / or the Care Standards Act 2000 an enhanced police criminal records disclosure will be requested by the Trust in the event of a successful application.
