Consultant Paediatrician with a special interest in Paediatric Cardiology
We are seeking to appoint a Substantive Paediatric Consultant with a specialist interest in paediatric cardiology to compliment the department. The successful applicant will complement the current team, and will ensure we have 2 Consultant leads within this sub speciality.

Candidates for this role must have full GMC registration with a licence to practise and preferably have recent experience within the NHS.
The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has, following major investment, undertaken an extensive programme of reconfiguration of its Women and Children’s services with an entirely new purpose-built Women & Children’s Centre at the Princess Royal Hospital.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the biggest development of Children’s services that the County has seen. You will become part of a team and will work in what is one of the largest acute District General Hospital Paediatric departments in the Country serving a catchment population of over 0.5 million.
Our vision is for the highest quality care, to provide an environment in which all staff, and in particular trainees, are supported and thrive, with greater delivery of care by Consultants in line with RCPCH recommendations and 7 day working. The investment in infrastructure provides not only a single large Paediatric ward for the County – 36 beds, with specialist high-dependency and oncology areas, but also a new large Children’s Assessment/Short-Stay 8-bedded unit at the Princess Royal Hospital and a Paediatric Medical Day case Unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital which are designed to facilitate Hospital admission avoidance.
Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.
It is a particularly exciting time to join the Trust as we have recently started working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK hospitals to receive this support, from what is regarded as the safest hospital in the world. This collaboration means employees can benefit from the KPO (Kaizen Promotion Office) and value Stream work, gaining valuable help and guidance regardless of your level of expertise. It poses a unique opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a part of our journey. More about this can be found under further links.
Shropshire is a beautiful county located between the West Midlands and North Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills it is anything but sleepy. The county is bustling with idyllic towns including Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, with plenty to do regardless of your interests. More information can again be found under further links.
We are ideally located between the north and the south making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our County also borders with beautiful North Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
