The Primary employer will be NNUH. This post does not involve resident on call, acute general Paediatric on calls overnight or neonatology commitments. This is an opportunity to be part of a dynamic department excited about meeting the challenges of delivering high quality care and education in the modern NHS and developing integrated patient-centered ways of working.


At the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital the post will focus on delivery of acute paediatric care. The successful applicant will join a team of 18 other acute medical consultants, working across both CAU and the inpatient areas to provide an integrated acute paediatric service in this busy teaching hospital.

A range of opportunities exist within the Community Trust for applicants with community paediatric GRID or SPIN training or for those with sound general paediatric expertise. Clinical commitments will be tailored to the experience and interests of the applicant. The safeguarding responsibilities will include contribution to the urgent child protection rota (9am-5pm only), which can include examinations for suspected sexual abuse. We recognize that applicants may have limited experience in sexual abuse examinations and support will be provided to develop skills in this area. A robust safeguarding peer review process is in place. It is desirable to have subspecialty community paediatric training; the clinical and general safeguarding responsibilities should be within the scope of any candidate with general paediatric training.


We welcome all applications irrespective of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion and both Trusts operate job share and flexible working.  Additionally, people with disabilities will be offered an interview providing they meet the minimum criteria for the post.
