Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust has the widest range of paediatric specialties (>50) and largest critical care unit in the UK. We are expanding our critical care beds in the coming years and currently work to 17 beds on PICU and 10 beds on NICU. Collectively, we admit approximately 1900 patients per year to our ICU, making the unit one of the largest of its kind in Europe. The national services for Vein of Galen AVM intervention, ECMO, heart / lung transplantation and mechanical assist bridge to transplant are housed within the critical care areas.

We are looking for two innovative and enthusiastic paediatric intensive care consultants for substantive appointments to start from April 2018.

PICU and NICU provide the full spectrum of intensive care to infants and children with medical and surgical complications (except for liver transplantation). PICU is situated within a refurbished purpose-built 23 bedded unit (treating 850 patients / year) and NICU in a 16 bedded unit (treating 350 babies / year).

There are separate consultant teams on call for The PICU / NICU, CICU and CATS, with potential for cross-cover between the units in the future. The critical care areas are national and international training centres with a strong academic profile.

These are full-time posts (8 DCC / 2 SPA). The successful candidates will have at least two year's specialist paediatric intensive care training in a recognised training centre and have outstanding teamwork skills. Applications from Paediatric Anaesthetists with training in PICU are also most welcome.
