University Hospital Waterford,
Waterford, Ireland

University Hospital Waterford (UHW) is a 535 bedded teaching hospital, located in the South East of Ireland, serving a population of over 500,000. The hospital has nearly 2,000 staff and provides a broad range of specialities including several regional specialities. It is a designated teaching hospital of University College Cork and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland. The South East of Ireland covers an area of great natural beauty and features some spectacular coastline and countryside steeped in history. Waterford is the oldest and fifth most populous city in Ireland with a lively arts and theatre scene.

The National Clinical programme for Paediatrics and Neonatology, HSE Acute Hospitals Division and National Doctors Training and Planning are supporting the development of a Paediatric Consultant Delivered Service in UHW.

Key features of this Consultant Delivered Service will include
the following:

  • Patients will have early contact with a senior decision maker
  • An active on site Consultant presence in all clinical areas throughout the working day and for an extended period during peak times of acute clinical activity
  • Increased ambulatory care activity including use of a short stay observation unit, rapid access clinics and efficient outpatient clinics
  • Opportunities to both develop new and build on existing areas of special interest
  • Opportunities for flexible working arrangements
  • Development of closer liaison with GPs and primary care services
  • Increased opportunities for education and research

This Consultant Delivered Service requires an increase in the Consultant Paediatrician numbers in UHW to ten.

Applications are now being sought from interested candidates to join the dynamic Paediatric team in UHW to develop and progress this important and exciting initiative.
