Community Consultant Paediatrics x2
We are looking to appoint two substantive Community Consultant Paediatricians, to work across various sites within the borough. This is an opportunity to join the enthusiastic and friendly paediatric department in Wigan. There are close links between the community and acute paediatric services with some colleagues doing hybrid roles across both services. The first post is to lead the LAC/Adoption and Fostering work (Named doctor for LAC). The second post is to support the Paediatric Audiology service delivered through Bridgewater alongside a part time Paediatric Audiology colleague. To complement this there will be the opportunity to work in Community Paediatrics with the possibility of taking up a leadership role such as Designated Medical Officer for SEND.
There are no acute paediatric or on-call commitments with these posts however this could be negotiated depending on the experience and interest of the candidate. There may also be the opportunity to contribute to the Greater Manchester Sudden Unexpected death in Childhood rota (SUDC).
For both posts, experience in the management of ADHD, ASD, Learning difficulties and associated comorbidities is necessary. There are close working relationships with colleagues in Bridgewater community services, North West Boroughs mental health trust, education and social care.
