Leighton Hospital

Nestled in the heart of Cheshire, with green fields bordering the site on
every side, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff benefit
from great work, home, education and leisure opportunities.

The Trust has three sites, including its headquarters at Leighton Hospital in Crewe – 35 minutes from Manchester or Liverpool and less than an hour away from Birmingham, yet only half an hour away from the Peak District. There are some excellent day nurseries and schools in the local area, including 22 Ofsted “Outstanding Providers”.

The Trust has a formal clinical partnership with its nearby University Hospital, benefits from local universities in Crewe (Manchester Metropolitan University) and in Chester.

The Trust was rated as ‘Good’ by the CQC from its recent inspection, has a
good reputation for research and benefits from some of the very latest clinical facilities; these include Critical Care, neonatal intensive care, a new suite of state-of-the-art theatres and a dedicated day case Treatment Centre. The Trust has invested significantly in recent years in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the range of indicators.

Applications are invited for a Consultant Paediatrician with an Interest
in Diabetes at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The successful candidate will join a team of 9 Consultants based at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. The Consultant paediatric team provide a 1:8 on-call, 1:8 paediatric “hot week” and 1:8 neonatal “hot week”. This post is a replacement post within a well-developed and high quality specialist paediatric diabetes service.

The Paediatric department provides a comprehensive local general paediatric service with a dedicated children’s clinic, children’s ward and local neonatal unit. The neonatal Unit was fully modernised in 2014 and the children’s ward is currently being refurbished and modernised. We are well supported by other specialties within the Trust and clinical networks. We are looking for a motivated individual to join our forward thinking and dedicated
team to enhance the service for the children and families of Vale Royal and
South Cheshire.

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC including a License to
