Applications are invited for the post of Locum Consultant in Anaesthetics specialising in Paediatric Anaesthetics.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.

Our staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.

As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia.

We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development.

The Paediatric department consists of 7 Consultant Anaesthetists and 5 Consultant Paediatric Surgeons covering all specialities except cardiac and neurosurgery. There is HDU support within the paediatric ward but no PICU. Approximately 80 neonatal procedures are undertaken annually with a level 3 NICU managed by neonatologists. In addition to paediatric sessions the successful applicant would be expected to undertake adult anaesthetic sessions during the working week (to complete a 10 PA job plan) and contribute to a 1:7 paediatric on-call rota.
