Consultant in General Paediatrics (Neonatal)
Hampshire Hospitals is looking for a general paediatric consultant with an interest, or willingness to develop an interest, in neonatal care. Within the role the direct clinical care activities will include neonatal unit, general paediatric ward, working in the children’s area of the emergency department, general outpatients and general paediatric on call. As with all new paediatric consultants there will be a requirement to do a small number of resident night shifts to support the middle grade rota. This post is based primarily at RHCH, Winchester with close links with colleagues in Basingstoke and potential requirements to cover duties in Basingstoke in due course. There will be an opportunity to use or develop other sub-speciality interests commensurate with the needs of the department.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a large team of paediatric consultants serving one of the largest populations of children in the Wessex Region. The post has arisen due to the increasing demands on unscheduled attendances and to support the longer term plan to co-locate the well-established paediatric assessment areas within the emergency departments.
