Consultant in Paediatric Emergency Medicine

This is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in the UK. The Emergency Department (ED) is based at Leicester Royal Infirmary where we currently see 150,000 patients a year excluding attendances at the adjacent Urgent Care Centre. The Paediatric Emergency Department receives over 44,000 patients per annum from Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Phase 1 of a multi-million pound rebuild of the emergency department was completed in April 2017. The new build incorporates a new Children's Emergency Department, and a 12 bedded Short Stay Paediatric Unit for children who are expected to stay less than 18 hours, as well as a new adult ED and 12 bedded resuscitation room.

This post is to work alongside the existing consultant body (5 PEM Paeds Consultants, 4 EM Paeds consultants and 14 EM consultants) working in the new Paediatric Emergency Department and Short Stay Unit. A Paediatric background is beneficial to help support the Children’s Short Stay Unit, but not essential

We are able to support part time and full time job plans (up to 12 Pas). Flexible packages are available and informal approaches are welcome. Current consultant 10 PA job plans are split 7.5 DCC and 2.5 SPA. Consultants work 1:8 weekends.

The ED in Leicester has pioneered an annualised consultant rota which is increasingly being adopted in other centres. This offers personal flexibility, within a large committed team, time for sub-specialty interests in existing Consultants and support for others.

Despite the clinical work pressures and challenges, our ED is a leading light nationally in Paediatric EM, EM Research, EM education and Geriatric EM and is actively developing a program in Pre-Hospital EM.

Leicester offers the option of rural or city living, excellent state and private education, easy access to London by train (55min) and East Midlands airport (30min).

As this post is regulated by the Protection of Children Act 1999, The Criminal Justice Courts Act 2000 and / or the Care Standards Act 2000 an enhanced disclosure by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will be undertaken.
