“Lake District Orthopaedics. High quality care in stunning surroundings!”
Locum Consultant (12 month fixed contract) – Trauma & Orthopaedics with special interest in Paediatric Surgery at the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust with base at Royal Lancaster Infirmary
The Lake District is quite probably the most beautiful region in England and not surprisingly the National Park is the most visited in the country. Holiday makers are attracted here by the stunning scenery, the wealth of leisure activities and the multitude of good places to eat and drink. But why holiday here when you could be living and working here?
We are looking for a Locum Consultant with mainly Paediatric interest but will be flexible to accommodate adult subspecialty (preferably lower limb arthroplasty) in addition. We are hoping to make this post substantive in the near future. The post has become available due to retirement of a Paediatric Orthopaedic Consultant.
You will undertake 10 PAs including 1.5 SPAs and 1 admin PA. On-calls will be at Royal Lancaster Infirmary, a level-two trauma centre, on a 1 in 10 non-resident basis. All paediatric elective patients are treated at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and adults will at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Westmorland General Hospital, Kendal.
You will have support from a middle-grade doctor whenever possible. Ward support will be provided by the 3 FY1 Drs, 2 FY2 Drs, 2 CT level Drs, 2 specialist nurse practitioners and the 3 trauma coordinators. The administrative burden will be supported by a named secretary and waiting-list coordinator. Upon taking up the post the post-holder will be offered a consultant mentor.
Our strong ties with Lancaster University offer great opportunities to get involved with teaching medical students and with research.
Medical Students from Lancaster Medical School receive the whole of their education, academic and clinical, in Cumbria and North Lancashire following the Liverpool undergraduate medical curriculum. The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust is the lead NHS organisation and takes responsibility throughout the five years of the degree for the provision of acute practice placements. In addition to time spent at UHMBT students spend around a third of their clinical time in the community. Primary care placements are based in practices across Cumbria and North Lancashire, and their mental health placements are provided by North Lancashire Primary Care Trust and the Lancashire Care NHS Trust.
We are therefore delighted to offer this great opportunity for a suitably trained Orthopaedic surgeon to take up a Consultant post working in a highly successful, modern department delivering outstanding results in a breathtakingly beautiful part of England.
Interview expenses will be paid from point of entry to the UK.
