Consultant in stroke medicine
Queen Elizabeth hospital
You are invited for a full-time Consultant in Stroke Medicine with a maintained interest in a parent specialty if desired.
We are recognised as one of the leading NHS Foundation Trusts in the UK, providing services to nearly 700,000 adult patients every year. The Trust is a regional centre for cancer, trauma, burns& plastics and has the largest solid organ transplantation programme in Europe. Our 6,900 staff are currently transferring services into Birmingham’s first new acute hospital in 70 years; the new £545m Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, which opened its doors to patients on June 15, 2010.
It is one of the most –consistently high performing trusts in the NHS and has been rated “excellent” for both financial management and for quality of clinical and non-clinical services by the Care Quality Commission.
The Trust provides traditional secondary care services to the South Birmingham catchment area. Specialist tertiary care is provided across the West Midlands and a proportion of the Trust’s activity is provided to patients who are referred from outside the region.
Stroke Medicine has close links with Neurology in the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. It is an active thrombolysis centre with good research links and a developing thrombectomy service for acute ischaemic stroke. The post may include shared care of the stroke rehabilitation ward at Moseley Hall Hospital if this is of interest.
The Trust is keen to hear both from people who want to work exclusively in Stroke, and those who still want to maintain an interest in their parent specialty.
You should be on the GMC specialist register or be eligible within six months, together with an MRCP or equivalent and have experience in stroke medicine and thrombolysis/thrombectomy.
The Divisional Director, Dr Michael Berry, the Clinical Service Lead for Stroke Medicine, Dr Don Sims, and the Clinical Service Lead for Geriatric Medicine, Dr. Claire Sutton will also be pleased to discuss the post further, and the interactions with Geriatric & Stroke medicine.

Closing date: 27 December 2018.
