Consultant Respiratory Physician
We have 2 Respiratory Consultant posts available in response to important further service expansion which will take the Respiratory Consultant complement up from 4 to 6 WTE.
Situated in one of the most attractive and inexpensive parts of the country, The County Hospital (Hereford) is a new purpose-built hospital providing high quality medical care to a rural population of approximately 230,000, mainly drawn from the County of Herefordshire but also from its neighbouring Welsh County of Powys.
In addition to excellent working conditions, the hospital continues to develop clinical services with a brand new 24-bedded AMU and a new surgical ward block currently under construction. The plans for a three counties medical school are progressing with recent GMC stage 3 approval and this offers opportunities to be closely involved in teaching and training in addition to those already available from Birmingham University.
This post offers a fantastic opportunity for a great-work life balance by joining a highly modern, dynamic and forward-thinking team as part of ongoing service expansion to support a 7-day Respiratory service.
We are a dedicated Department, supported by an excellent team of Respiratory nurses, Physiologists and a full complement of Junior Doctors and Physicians Associates. We aim to deliver the full range of Respiratory services available at larger centres to our local population. We would welcome colleagues with a similar ethos of not compromising on patient care and services while enjoying the benefits of living and working in a beautiful part of the world.
The 10 PA job plan is split 7.5 DCC and 2.5 SPA. Additional specialty or management PAs can be offered.
Candidates are most welcome to visit the hospital and are encouraged to discuss the post with all consultants and any other members of staff they wish. Visits can be arranged through:
