Knee Fellowship - PA20190500019(1)

Salary Scale equivalent to MN37 - £31,841 to £50,068 pa

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a leading orthopaedic centre of excellence. A specialist hospital with a reputation for innovation, the Trust provides a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal (bone, joint and tissue) surgical, medical and rehabilitation services; locally, regionally and nationally.

We are now commencing recruitment to a Knee Fellowship, which will commence on the 3rd August 2020, for a period of ideally 12 month but we will look at 6 month for a suitable applicant.

The Fellowship is designed to accommodate an orthopaedic surgeon, who has attained CCT (or equivalent) in Trauma and Orthopaedics (or who will be within 2 months of attaining their CCT at the commencement of the Fellowship) or who is on the specialist register and would like to gain a further period of development in the sub-speciality of Knee Surgery in preparation for a consultant role.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate within their application a satisfactory level of independent operating in relevant surgical procedures.

The post offers, subject to satisfactory assessment, the opportunity to develop independent surgical practice. The role also gives exposure to specialist Knee clinics and theatre lists, and participate in audit and research.

As a hospital our overriding objective is to deliver outstanding patient care and we pride ourselves in the standards we achieve and in the feedback from our patients on the quality of services.

Informal enquiries are welcomed. Please contact Mr Pete Gallacher, Clinical Lead and Consultant Knee and Sports Knee Surgeon on 01691 664849.

Closing date 3rd October 2019.
