Consultant in General Paediatrics with interest in Respiratory Medicine
The Family and Support Services Division of Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed General Paediatrician to work full time (12 PAs).
This is an exciting opportunity to join a team of acute paediatricians at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The post has arisen due to retirement of a Consultant with a special interest in respiratory paediatrics and allergy, based at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester.
The post holder will take a lead in the respiratory paediatric and cystic fibrosis service at Royal Hampshire County Hospital, supported by the equivalent respiratory lead at North Hampshire Hospital and a team of community specialist nurses. He/she will also participate with colleagues in the provision of the local allergy service.
There are strong links with University of Southampton Children’s Hospital, including the paediatric respiratory and allergy services and both services are represented in the Regional Networks. Shared care clinics for cystic fibrosis are well established with the visiting respiratory specialist from Southampton. There will be plenty of opportunity for further education and training within the post to develop expertise.
The post holder will also participate in the out of hours rotas (including a small contribution to resident nights, up to 12 nights per year) and participate in the provision of the level 2 neonatal and general paediatric service with colleagues.
Winchester is a beautiful historic city close to the South Coast and New Forest National Park. There is the added benefit of direct train links to London and excellent local schools.
The post is advertised as full time but applicants wishing to work less than full time will also be considered.
