The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Foundation Trust wishes to appoint a Consultant Stroke Physician. This post is a replacement post for one of the stroke consultants who has semi-retired. The Trust has worked with Imperial College Hospital NHS Trust to create a joint post between the Acute Stroke Unit (ASU) at West Middlesex Hospital and the Hyper-Acute Stroke Unit (HASU) at Charing Cross Hospital, which are within the world renowned pan London Stroke network. The appointment will be 10PAs and will include 2PAs at Charing Cross Hospital HASU with participation in the HASU on-call rota. This post will be predominately based at the West Middlesex University Hospital site. 

This is a newly RCP approved post. We are looking for a team player with a flexible approach, who can embrace new ways of working. This post becomes available at an exciting time for the service.
