Applications are invited for five Locum Consultant Paediatrician posts to provide paediatric ED/ Assessment unit cover as consultant on site. Experience of having worked in specialist paediatric EDs is desirable but not essential. You will provide support and guidance on site to middle grade doctors at the front line (Paediatric ED and in Assessment unit) during day time. These posts will be full time (10PA). These posts would ideally suit the people who have just completed CCT, within six months of completion of CCT or experienced registrars who expected to receive CESR within 6 months to have consultant experience on the front line for a period of 6 months – 1 year before taking up a substantive consultant post.

You will join an existing team of General Paediatric Consultants with different special interests backed up by Specialty Doctors and Specialist Registrars in the Paediatric Directorate. These post holders will run rapid access clinics on rotation. There will be a regular opportunity to do paediatric and neonatal ward rounds as consultant of the week along with on-call. There is high possibility of this post becoming permanent if business case gets successfully approved for permanent funding.

This is an opportunity to join a progressive and enthusiastic Paediatric team in a modern, well-equipped department. This post is based at Darent Valley Hospital, which serves a population of around 290,000. The hospital operates from the 21st century facilities and has a very positive organisational culture and an excellent workforce of dedicated, flexible staff committed to improving the patient experience

Closing Date: 27th September 2020
