Applications are invited for two Locum Consultant posts in Neonatal Transport Medicine and Neonatal Medicine to commence from May 2019 for a period of 12 months.
These new posts will attract 10 PA's and the post holders will work mainly with The Acute Neonatal Transfer Service for the East of England (ANTS) and on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Rosie Hospital. You will lead and deliver transfers for ANTS and will provide clinical leadership, specialist advice and multi-disciplinary management for the neonatal transport team across the region and for the Neonatal Unit.
The Acute Neonatal Transfer Service (ANTS) is one of the busiest neonatal transfer teams in the UK providing emergency and elective transfers 24/7, 365 days a year. The Neonatal Unit in Cambridge is one of three tertiary level units in the East of England.
As well as comprehensive neonatal intensive care, the Unit provides a service for the high risk maternal and fetal medicine teams, specialist neonatal surgery and neurosurgery. The Unit has close links with the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and the University Department of Paediatrics. You will join a close team of nurses, physiotherapy dieticians, SLT, psychology, and other members of the multidisciplinary team
This is an exciting time to join the team as Funding of £128m for a new children's hospital in Cambridge to open in 2023 was announced in 2018. Plans for a new regional Paediatric and Neonatal Care Retrieval Service are now well advanced.
You will be fully registered with the GMC and ideally have a CCT in Paediatrics or be within six months of award of CCT at the time of interview. Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.
The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC's Good Medical Practice (2013). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.
Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Medical Council at time of application is required.
