Consultant Paediatrician.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is looking to appoint one substantive full-time (or two part-time) Consultant Paediatrician. The post/posts are to complete a team of 9.6 WTE Consultant Paediatricians. Special interests within the team are supported and further career development can be facilitated during these posts, with additional time in job plans. Special interests to complement the department (such as Diabetes, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Child Protection, Rheumatology or Neonatology) would be preferable, but all candidates would be considered.

We expect this Consultant Paediatrician post to become networked with those in other Trusts within Devon, most likely Exeter, providing further opportunities for research, teaching and development.

The acute hospital is big enough to provide real opportunities for leadership and innovation, yet small enough to make prompt, effective change a reality. We perform
highly against clinical standards and have a proven track record of staff satisfaction, enabling our doctors to focus on giving great care to patients.

For further information about this post, please contact Mr Jonny Morgan, Group Manager, Women’s and Children’s on 01271 314010 and Dr Helen Sammons (Clinical Lead) 01271 314112.

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

According to many clinical targets, we rate as one of the best performing non-foundation trusts in England, because we treat patients in line with national waiting time standards, have very few hospital-acquired infections and meet our four-hour waiting times for urgent care. We have a huge range of clinical expertise that we share across professional spheres to ensure people get world-class care when they need it.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
