An exciting opportunity has arisen at London North West University Healthcare NHS trust for a new consultant to join our award-winning stroke services, based at Northwick Park.

We are looking to appoint a new consultant in Stroke Medicine.

Northwick Park hosts a busy HyperAcute Stroke Unit and we are looking for someone, comprehensively trained in stroke medicine, who is willing to share equally in the whole stroke pathway from on-call to rehabilitation.

The post is a 10 PA position (7.5 DCC, 2.5 SPA) in the Comprehensive Stroke Service to join 4.5 wte consultants. The Stroke Unit was set up under the London re-organisation of stroke in 2009 and operates to very strict audit and quality standards. We provide 24/7 thrombolysis and comprehensive rehabilitation with an early supported discharge team. Particular strengths of our service are our speech & language therapy which is well staffed and uses all the latest research-based techniques, our routine psychology service and our commitment to research, recruiting to studies covering all stages of stroke. We would particularly encourage an applicant with a strong interest in research.

Our unit consistently rates highly on the SSNAP audit and has won national awards variously for clinical leadership, research and service re-design.

The appointee will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and post graduate teaching, departmental audit and research.

Northwick Park is a large district teaching hospital, with excellent transport links to the West End and the shires, with private and public schooling among the best in the country. Applicants should have full GMC registration and experience, evidence of specialist stroke training and a CCT in any stroke parent specialty or be close to their CCT date
