About the job

THE ROLE

An excellent opportunity has arisen to join the Paediatric Department
at The Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

We are seeking to appoint a full-time substantive Specialty Doctor to
join the 15 strong middle

tier - 2 full-time Associate Specialists, 4 specialty doctors and 9
specialty trainees who provide Paediatric tier 2 support across both
Hospitals and includes resident out-of-hours duties as part of a
EWTD-compliant partial shift middle-grade rota.

The post attracts 10 PA’s an additional 2 PA’s may be available.
Part time applicants will also be considered.

The Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust has, following major
investment, undertaken an extensive programme of reconfiguration of
its Women and Children’s services with an entirely new purpose-built
Women & Children’s Centre at The Princess Royal Hospital.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the biggest development
of Children’s services that the County has seen. You will become
part of a team and will work in what is one of the largest acute
District General Hospital Paediatric departments in the County serving
a catchment population of over 0.5 million.

Candidates for this role must have GMC registration and recent
experience within the NHS.

THE DEPARTMENT

Our vision is for the highest quality care, to provide an environment
in which all staff, and in particular trainees, are supported and
thrive, with greater delivery of care by Consultants in line with
RCPCH recommendations. The investment in infrastructure provides not
only a single large Paediatric ward for the County – 36 beds, with
specialist high-dependency and oncology areas, but also a new large
Children’s Assessment/Short-Stay 8-bedded unit at the Princess Royal
Hospital and a 6 bedded 8 hour Paediatric Medical Day – Case Unit at
the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital which are designed to facilitate
Hospital admission avoidance.

The post attracts 10 PA’s an additional 2 PA’s may be available.
Part time applicants will also be considered.

This is an ideal post in which to further develop skills in acute
Paediatrics and in out-patient paediatrics; with the potential to
develop sub-specialty expertise and teaching skills

With the reconfigured service there will be separate Neonatal and
Paediatric rotas. However due to the nature of the post, neonatal
experience is a significant advantage. Development of a sub specialty
would also be welcomed to compliment the department.

OUR HOSPITALS

Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming
with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.

It is a particularly exciting time to join the Trust as we have
recently started working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason
Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK hospitals to receive
this support, from what is regarded as the safest hospital in the
world. This collaboration means we are benefiting from the KPO (Kaizen
Promotion Office) and value Stream work, gaining valuable help and
guidance regardless of your level of expertise. It poses a unique
opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a
part of our journey. More about this can be found under further links.

SHROPSHIRE

Shropshire is a beautiful county located between the West Midlands and
North Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills it is
anything but sleepy. The county is bustling with idyllic towns
including Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, with plenty to
do regardless of your interests. More information can again be found
under further links.

We are ideally located between the north and the south making
travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short
distance from major cities and busy transport links including
Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales
which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and
thrilling scenery.

We want you to find out more about the department and our hospitals,
and we invite you to contact Dr Kumar Sethuraman with any questions
you may have on ##### ######, or even arrange a visit. Please also
take the time to read any supporting documentation to really get to
know us.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.
