Applications are invited for the NEW post of Consultant Anaesthetist at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Truro.

The Royal Cornwall Hospital is situated in the City of Truro. We have a broad range of elective services, with a diverse emergency workload, in arguably the best place to live and practice medicine in the UK. The Hospital is a major District General Hospital, a major trauma unit, a vascular centre, with comprehensive cancer services, delivering over 30000 anaesthetics per year, with over 700 beds.

We are looking for a Consultant in Anaesthesia with a broad range of skills to become an active member of a flexible team, at a particularly exciting time for anaesthetic expansion and peri-operative medicine, orthopaedic and major trauma development in Cornwall.

Experience in pre-assessment and peri-operative medicine and expertise or desire to develop CPET and/or peri-operative echocardiography as well as orthopaedic and regional anaesthesia, and experience of major trauma care, would be most attractive. ENT experience at consultant level would also be very desirable. Wider skills in audit and governance, and management and leadership would be particularly desirable.

Each job plan within the department is designed to deliver a balanced opportunity to enable professional and relationship development, to ensure quality anaesthetic provision and successful revalidation. Opportunities exist for all consultants within the fields of teaching, academia, research, education and management and leadership. We endeavour to introduce all colleagues to these areas to ensure a collaborative and cohesive department.

We are committed to balance well-being and professional interest throughout a career in Anaesthesia at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. We are delighted to offer an interesting yet life-style compatible 1:24 general anaesthesia night-time on call and a consultant delivered CEPOD and TRAUMA service with excellent national outcomes.
