Consultant Physician with a special interest in Stroke
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated colleague to join our high performing and productive Stroke Service here on the Isle of Wight. Our organisation is unique, functioning as an integrated Trust comprising of Acute, Ambulance, Community and Mental Health Services.
We provide comprehensive Stroke Services including bleep service, Hyper Acute Stroke Unit beds, TIA clinics and Stroke follow up clinics. The Stroke consultants work alongside a comprehensive multidisciplinary team and Early Supportive Discharge Team.
Following the retirement of two consultants, the provision of Stroke services is being redesigned. Patients will continue to be provided with excellent general medical and specialist stroke care at St Mary’s with the assurance that there is continued access to specialist secondary and tertiary provision by Solent Acute Alliance partner Trusts when required.
The clinical strategy is currently under development and includes Stroke within the provision of medical services. The majority of Stroke services will be provided locally by the Island based team, and the interface with partner Trusts is currently under discussion.
This post would be suitable for candidates who would be enthusiastic about developing a new model of service provision and are passionate about the delivery of Stroke services for the population of 140,000 that live on the Isle of Wight.
As a key member of the Stroke team you will work together with other colleagues and the Lead Clinician for Stroke, to implement and provide a comprehensive Stroke service and achieve the national and regional quality standards for Stroke. The post is configured to provide outpatient and inpatient care, along with a commitment to the 1:11 acute medical on-call rota.
The successful candidate(s) will also be expected to take part in business planning of Stroke Services in collaboration with the Clinical Lead Consultant Nurse and the Care Group’s operational management team.
A recruitment and relocation package is available for discussion upon appointment.
For an informal discussion please contact either Dr Mark Connaughton, Care Group Director or Jeannine Johnson, Clinical Lead Consultant Nurse by calling 01983 882099 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeannine.email@example.com.
