Stroke Consultant

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed colleagues to join our dynamic Stroke Consultant team to help develop and deliver a first class stroke service in Bournemouth and Poole. The post holder should be an effective team player with a flexible approach who can embrace new ways of working and will be expected to take an active role in the running and development of our stroke service.  The post is for a substantive Consultant in Stroke Medicine, who can deliver high quality care along the entire Stroke Service pathway. This will include hyper-acute care, provision of 24/7 Stroke thrombolysis, regional 7-day TIA service, stroke rehabilitation, stroke early supported discharge, stroke outpatient/follow-up clinics and stroke research.

Dorset is in the process of a major reconfiguration of Hospital services, with The Royal Bournemouth Hospital becoming the major Emergency Hospital for the region and Poole Hospital the major Planned Hospital. Stroke is at the forefront of these changes with the Stroke Services at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Poole Hospital coming together with an East Dorset Hyper-acute Stroke Unit being established at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital by April 2020. This presents an exciting opportunity for the post-holder to be directly involved in this significant transformation and the chance to help shape and develop innovative services and pathways for stroke and TIA.

We offer flexible bespoke job plans including for those working less than full time. We understand the importance of sustainable working and are able to offer a highly attractive package for successful applicants. There is the opportunity to deliver sessions in Medicine for Older People or Neurology if desired. It is anticipated that the post holder will deliver stroke sessions across the two hospitals.

Applicants must be on the GMC’s specialist register or within six months of completing a training programme recognised for the award of CCT or equivalent.
