CONSULTANT PAEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIST

REF. 317-CON-18-157

Applications are invited for a 10 PA post in Paediatric Neurology based at the Great North Children’s Hospital (GNCH) in Newcastle upon Tyne. The successful candidate will join a vibrant paediatric neurology department composed of 3 full time NHS Paediatric Neurologists and 4 full time Clinical Academic Paediatric Neurologists.

The GNCH Paediatric Neurology Service includes a wide range of clinical and research interests including rehabilitation following TBI, adaptive mechanisms of recovery following stroke and neurogenetics. The service also makes a major clinical contribution to the success of 4 nationally commissioned services in Rare Mitochondrial Diseases, Rare Neuromuscular Diseases, the SCID transplant Service and the Children’s Cardiac Transplant Service as well as running a successful region-wide Ketogenic Diet service.

The GNCH Paediatric Neurology Service provides tertiary level care for children with neurological disorders throughout the North East of England and Cumbria. This is achieved through a region-wide PICU retrieval service for acute emergencies, a dedicated paediatric neuroscience inpatient facility on ward 1b and outpatient services provided at GNCH and through a network of outreach clinics across the region. The post-holder, though based at GNCH, will be expected to contribute to this outreach model of outpatient care. The NUTH NHS Trust provides regional neurosurgical and neuro-oncology services on the GNCH site where the region-wide PICU and retrieval team are also co-located.

In addition to the challenges of the role, we can offer you a commitment to teaching, education, research and audit. The post-holder will have experience in all areas of paediatric neurology and will be on, or eligible to join, the Specialist Register for General Paediatrics and Paediatric Neurology, within 6 months of the Appointments Committee.
