“Right now we are building our future”
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, innovative and driven Paediatrician to join our team.
We have one 10PA post with an interest in renal disorders. We are passionate about our ethos and philosophy and are driven to provide the best care for our patients.
A clinical skills lab is embedded within the Trust and there is great emphasis on education within the department.
The Paediatric unit is currently hosted across two sites with a number of outpatient specialty services being delivered, including the paediatric allergy service and diabetes service. The Consultants provide clinical care for patients admitted to the City Hospital Assessment Unit on a rotating basis and also the main paediatric Unit at Sandwell Hospital on a 1 in 11 ‘hot week’ model. HDU patients are looked after in selected areas on the wards throughout the year.
The Paediatric Medicine department is renowned for being a popular site for trainees who have a regular in-house teaching programme. Trainees are also involved in teaching and education.
Feedback from the Foundation trainees is one of the best within the Trust. APLS is run within the trust by paediatric consultants. The department has regular presentations at local, national and international meetings of its work, services and innovation.
The successful candidates will be within 6 months of CCT Paediatrics and have a specialist interest in Paediatric Renal Disorders.
Birmingham is a vibrant, multi-cultural city and it is a very exciting place to live and work. It has a population of 1.1 million, the youngest in Europe. Its residents speak over 140 languages and blend different cultures and nationalities with history that is rich in industrial heritage.
The area boasts affordable housing with popular residential districts within an easy commute to either of the main hospital sites. There are a number of very good schools and colleges locally (including a number of independent and grammar schools such as the King Edwards Schools).
Birmingham is a very green city with more than 8,000 acres of green space including impressive parks. Due to our central location and good motorway connections we are in easy reach of a number of beautiful rural locations including the Peak District, Cannock Chase, the Lickey Hills and the Cotswolds.
