Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with skills in Fetal Medicine. This post is based at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton and would start as soon as possible after 1st September 2019.
This is an established RCOG approved post at Musgrove Park Hospital. The successful candidate will have accreditation in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and ideally sub-speciality training in Fetal Medicine. They will join an already well-established team, which includes Consultants with special interests in Emergency Gynaecology, Fetal Medicine and Maternal Medicine, Gynae-Oncology, Labour Ward and Education and Minimal Access Surgery (we are an Endometriosis Centre).
The Obstetric Unit delivers 3200 babies per year and the non-oncology consultants cover acute work by means of a 1 in 8 on call rota. This new post may share the cover of some of the night shifts otherwise covered by middle grade staff. We have two Consultant colleagues who are sub specialty trained who run the Gynae-Oncology service and a Consultant Diagnostic Lead who leads the Colposcopy and Post-menopausal Bleeding Service.
Musgrove Park Hospital is a busy District General Hospital providing acute and community services to 330,000 people living in the west side of Somerset. Taunton is situated in the south-west of England in the county town of Taunton just off the M5 motorway 37 miles north of Exeter, 48 miles south of Bristol. Taunton is 2 hours by rail from London. Glastonbury music festival takes place on our doorstep and there are some areas of outstanding beauty as well as four excellent independent schools. Locally we produce cider and cheddar cheese.
Applicants will hold MRCOG or equivalent and be enrolled/within 6 months of enrolment on the GMC’s Specialist Register at the time of interview.
