Locum Consultant Paediatrician - Lancashire
Lancaster, Lancashire, England
This is a Locum Consultant post for a period of 12 months, covering for maternity leave. This job is one of 9.5 WTE Non-resident Consultant Paediatrician posts in the Trust. This post is part of a team of 16 hospital based Consultant Paediatricians (14.1 WTEs), 6 Consultant Community Paediatricians and 6 Consultant Neonatologists in Lancashire. The post represents an exciting opportunity to work within a large paediatric service, managing patient care in general paediatrics.
The main clinical duties of this post are in general paediatrics with the option to have an interest in respiratory medicine. The 10 Consultant Paediatricians participate in a 1:6.5 Consultant of the week system which is split into 2 half weeks, working a block from Monday - Thursday, and a block Friday - Sunday. During the 'hot week' there are 2 Consultants of the week who are both ward based responsible for the ward, COAU, CMIU, ED emergency calls, and safeguarding.
This post will have 4 clinics per week including urgent and 'hot' referral slots (excluding hot weeks when only ward duties are undertaken). The hot slots are an exciting development aiming to provide rapid consultant assessment of urgent GP referrals, referrals from ED and consultant review of patients seen on the admissions units out of hours.
Existing consultants have expertise and interests in different specialty branches of paediatrics. The aim is to have a lead consultant for all specialty areas who can undertake independent and/or joint care of complex patients with nearby tertiary centres. In particular we provide expertise in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Respiratory Medicine including a large Cystic Fibrosis service, Epilepsy, Neurodisability, Nephrology, Haematology and Rheumatology. The department is also heavily involved in medical education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level including placements from both UK and overseas students. As the largest centralised children's service in the Northwest we also have an active research portfolio.
All applicants must have experience working in UK hospitals and must be GMC registered.
