Job Reference: 358-1712386-MED

Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
Neonates
Location:
Leicester
Salary:
£47,132.00

We seek to appoint a Senior Clinical Fellow for the Leicester Neonatal Service. The post will rotate between the neonatal units at the Leicester Royal Infirmary (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), the Leicester General Hospital (Special Care unit), and CenTre, Neonatal Transport Service.

 

The Leicester Neonatal Service is a dynamic and modern neonatal service providing the full range of care for babies in the East Midlands. The unit serves a large population with around 12000 deliveries per year. We provide care for babies of all gestations, including those requiring the most specialised forms of neonatal intensive care. We are a regional surgical cooling centre and offer surgery for a range of neonatal surgical conditions. We have close working links with the East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre and jointly treat a number of children with complex heart problems. Leicester has the UK's largest ECMO centre providing this unique form of life support to our sickest patients.

 

The Neonatal Service is currently split across 2 sites. We have 42 cots with plans for expansion of our unit. The Leicester Royal Infirmary houses our main intensive care, with facilities for 10 intensive care cots, 8 High Dependency Cots and 12 Special Care cots.

 

The Leicester General has a smaller unit with 12 Special Care cots. Many of our babies spend some time in both units.

 

Leicester is the Lead Neonatal Intensive Care for the region, and we work closely with other hospitals in our neonatal network. We work closely with the regional CenTre Neonatal Transport Service which is based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

 


This post gives additional experience, skills and knowledge in Neonatology both in neonatal intensive care and neonatal transport. It will form part of the tier 2 (ST4-8) rotations within the Neonatal service in Leicester. Successful candidates will join a team of doctors working a full-shift system in both neonatal units and neonatal transport service. The post is for 12 months in the first instance but would be flexible depending on the trainees individual needs. Candidates should demonstrate eligibility to work in the United Kingdom (PLAB or IPTS).
