Applications are invited for a Locum Consultant in Paediatric Neurology at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to commence April 2018 for six months. The post is part time (5 PA’s).

We are looking for an enthusiastic flexible and innovative team member to join our service for 6 months in the first instance pending establishment of a substantive post. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to providing high quality integrated care for children with neurological disorders and to continuous improvement of services.

The post holder will join the existing team of 5 consultant paediatric neurologists, clinical nurse specialists and trainees providing tertiary paediatric neurology services across the East of England encompassing a population of approximately 6 million people. You will be responsible for providing clinical care for children with neurological disorders as inpatients, outpatients and rapid referral day admissions.

We work within an active regional clinical network and you will provide a consultant advisory service to paediatric colleagues on the management of neurological disorders and support teaching and research activities locally and across the region. You will be actively involved in the supervision of medical trainees, allied health professionals and administrative staff within the paediatric neurology team and Child Development Centre.  We have close links with the University of Cambridge and there is ample opportunity for medical student supervision and teaching.

Applicants should be on the GMC Specialist Register or within 6 months of CCT at time of interview.

Applicants 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).
