Based at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, South East Wales



Applications are invited for a Junior Clinical Fellow (CT1 Equivalent Level) to work 12 months in ENT. 

Extensive prior experience in this speciality is not essential. 

This post is suitable for junior doctors wishing to apply in the future for core surgical or other specialty training programmes (including general practice and radiology), and for those who are as yet undecided as to their future career path. This post would be valuable in terms of supporting applications and gaining experience for Core Surgical Training.

The posts will sit alongside F2/Core Training doctors.  Clinical experience and training will be at a similar level to Foundation Year 2/Core Surgical Trainee year 1 training, and educational supervision will be provided.  Engagement with portfolio development including workplace-based assessments, learning agreements, educational supervision, audit and teaching will be encouraged and supported.  Advice and support with regard to applications to future training can also be offered.

The post will not have recognised educational approval, but will have similar supervision, study leave and annual leave as that of a recognised training post.

The ENT Department covers the whole of Gwent.  Inpatient, day case and outpatients are provided at the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport.  Outpatient Clinics are also held at Nevill Hall and County Hospitals in Gwent. The ENT Departments staffs 8 Consultants, 1 SAS, 3 Specialty Trainees, 3 Core Trainees, 1 FP2 and 1 Clinical Fellow CT level. The ENT rota is a 1:10 which is cross cover with Urology.

Excellent Postgraduate Medical facilities are available in a recently refurbished Postgraduate Centre.

The Board covers a key geographical area on the picturesque Welsh border, with Cardiff and Bristol within commuting distance and direct links by road and rail to major UK centres such as London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Gwent is situated between Gloucestershire to the east and Cardiff and the Wales valleys to the west, combining many of the attributes of neighbouring parts of England and Wales.  The City of Newport is just 12 miles from Cardiff and close to the splendour of the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley.  Bristol is within 30 minutes drive.
