Consultant Anaesthetist with a General, Pain or ICU Interest
NHS Forth Valley seeks to appoint Consultant Anaesthetists to support a major service development; ultimately we aim to appoint nine new colleagues by November 2019. These posts represent the first phase of this expansion.
You will join the existing Anaesthesia Team, comprising 29 Consultants, one Associate Specialist, two Specialty Doctors and some 17 trainees who share responsibility for providing a comprehensive clinical anaesthetic service for NHS Forth Valley. Services are centralised in the Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert with pain management clinics at Falkirk Community Hospital.
We will attempt to accommodate any subspecialty interest undertaken within Forth Valley, including critical care and chronic pain management. The posts will involve working on-site out of hours and overnight, as part of normal job planned activity.
The Anaesthesia Team supports a wide range of surgical specialties. There are active obstetric and paediatric services as well as acute and chronic pain services. The anaesthetic service is focused on surgical models such as day of surgery admission, day case surgery, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) and improving peri-operative care.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the Anaesthetic department and meet key staff.
