Job Description

Evelina London Children's Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital.

Locum Consultant in Paediatric Surgery

From £ 79,860 pa. excl. of London Zone

Full Time - 10 PA

Fixed Term Locum - 6 months

Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust is made up of two of London's best known teaching hospitals and employs over 13,000 staff and has over 2 million patient contacts a year. Our annual turnover is now £1.2 billion.

The Evelina Children's Hospital is a purpose-built Children's hospital opened in 2005, bringing together existing Children's services at St Thomas' and Guy's Hospitals onto one site. As part of King's Health Partners, we are now one of the UK's first Academic Health Sciences Centres aiming to bring together world class teaching, research and clinical services.

We are seeking a full-time (10 PA) Consultant to join the Paediatric and Neonatal Surgical department. The department is undergoing a significant period of change and we are looking for individuals with appropriate skills to complement the existing team and help build the Paediatric Surgical Service to be in the forefront of clinical and academic excellence. An interest in postgraduate education and training would be an advantage, as would leadership training and experience. This appointment will be as a locum in the first instance but we anticipate the post becoming substantive in the near future as an existing colleague is retiring.

Paediatric General Surgery is a key service for the Evelina Children's Hospital and beyond. The department offers a wide range of outpatient services across the South East, in particular at Lewisham Hospital and Darent Valley, where the surgical team also perform day case surgery. There are also outreach outpatient clinics at a number of affiliated DGHs which the successful applicant would be expected to undertake.

You must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a License to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent at the interview stage.

The postholder will have regular contact with vulnerable adults and/or children (0-18 years) and therefore this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.

As an organisation, we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients. This includes asking certain groups of staff to work more flexibly so that we can offer services to patients in the evenings and at weekends. We regard this flexibility as essential if we are to continue to provide first class patient care in the future. As a result, any offer of employment to a consultant post will be subject to you agreeing to work a new more flexible pattern of working in the future if required and in accordance with the provisions of the new Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust consultant contract.
