Applications are invited for the post of a Consultant Community Paediatrician with a special interest in neurodisability and community child health.

This is a new post and the successful candidate will join 5 consultants and 2 staff grades working in community child health, providing a service for children with neurodisability. The post holder will be able to develop their own special interest to complement those of the department. Applicants that wish to work less than full-time or job share are welcome and encouraged to apply.

At Musgrove Park Hospital, there are 11 consultant general paediatricians who provide acute paediatric ward and on-call cover on a hot week 1:11 rota. The neonatal unit is covered by a separate rota involving 5 consultant neonatal paediatricians. This post does not involve on-call.

The Trust has clear objectives in terms of delivering excellent, safe and effective patient care and aims for services that are positively rated by patients, families and stakeholders.

Taunton is in a beautiful part of the country, and has all the benefits of a modern county town, whilst being only minutes from spectacular areas of outstanding natural beauty and dramatic coastlines. Both road and rail links are excellent, with frequent trains to Bristol, London Paddington (1 hour 45 minutes) and M5 motorway close by.

This is an exciting opportunity for the successful applicant to help support and develop our service and to deliver the highest quality care.
