An excellent opportunity has arisen to join the Paediatric Department at The Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust. 

We are seeking to appoint a Substantive Paediatric Consultant with a specialist interest in paediatric cardiology to the Paediatric department here at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. The successful applicant will complement the current team, and will ensure we have 2 Consultant leads within this sub speciality. The post will also provide Consultant cover to the main in-patient unit at PRH with Consultant led ward rounds.  It also includes non-resident general paediatric Consultant support out of hours.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has, following major investment, undertaken an extensive programme of reconfiguration of its Women and Children’s services with an entirely new purpose-built Women & Children’s Centre at the Princess Royal Hospital.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the biggest development of Children’s services that the County has seen. You will become part of a team and will work in what is one of the largest acute District General Hospital Paediatric departments in the Country serving a catchment population of over 0.5 million.

Our vision is for the highest quality care, to provide an environment in which all staff, and in particular trainees, are supported and thrive, with greater delivery of care by Consultants in line with RCPCH recommendations and 7 day working. The investment in infrastructure provides not only a single large Paediatric ward for the County – 36 beds, with specialist high-dependency and oncology areas, but also a new large Children’s Assessment/Short-Stay 8-bedded unit at the Princess Royal Hospital and a Paediatric Medical Day case Unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital which are designed to facilitate Hospital admission avoidance.

The post attracts 10 PA’s. Part time, flexible working and job share applicants will also be considered.

With the reconfigured service there are separate Neonatal and Paediatric Consultant rotas. However due to the nature of the post, neonatal experience is a significant advantage due to the need for 7 day working within all specialities in the future.

We want you to find out more about the department and our hospitals, and we invite you to contact us with any questions you may have and you can also arrange to visit the department for our open day on Tuesday 12 February 2019 from 10:00 until 13:00 (lunch will be provided) please call Sam Tonks on 01952 641222 Ext 4841, email:  to confirm your attendance.

For an informal discussion please call Dr Kumar Sethuraman, Clinical Director Paediatrics - e-mail   01952 565982

Closing Date: Thursday 21 February (midnight).
