This job is an ideal post for those close to the end of their training in Paediatrics.
You will work on the SMO on call roster along with 12 Paediatricians as part of a 14 person acute senior roster. One in seven weeks is spent on the ward, alternating weeks between our 22 bed General Paediatric ward and 12 Bed level 2 SCBU catering for babies over 32 weeks gestation. Other weeks you will work in outpatients, working 2.5 clinics per week. Most weeks you will be on call overnight from home along with an SMO, and on site RMO cover.
This is a very well supported role ideal for Trainees ready to assume more responsibility whilst still enjoying full consultant supervision at all times. Half a day a week is available for working on your advanced training project, and another half a day a fortnight for CME.
