Medical & Dental Recruitment

Full Time (10 Sessions)

Consultant Anaesthetists

Anticipated Start Date: As soon as possible

Based at Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny and the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport. Cross-site work is expected of applicants.

Closing Date for Applications: Midnight on 22nd August 2019

These posts are a mixture of replacement and new posts to cover expanding surgical activity. The posts will have a primary base at NHH or RGH but cross site working will be expected by the directorate to meet service. With the current reconfiguration of services across the health Board, including the new Grange University Hospital which is due to open in 2021, the post holder may be required to work at any site across the health board.

The departments in Nevill Hall Hospital and the Royal Gwent Hospital provide an anaesthetic service for both elective and emergency theatre lists in more than 30 theatres across sites. As well as undertaking elective theatre lists, anaesthetists provide 24 hour cover for emergency surgery, trauma and obstetrics. They also participate in resuscitation training and the cardiac arrest team. Total deliveries on the labour wards are around 6700 per year supported by elective lists and an epidural service. The directorate has an active acute and chronic pain management service. Critical Care is present on both RGH and NHH.

The post holders will undertake 7 DCC and 3 SPA sessions per week. Applicants are expected to take part in the on call rota at the site specified to successful candidates after interview. Rota frequency can change with appointments and attract a banding intensity supplement appropriate to service which will be agreed via job planning processes. Candidates are reminded of the Clinical Futures Programme and should expect agreed changes in their working patterns over forthcoming years. ABUHB is looking for capable applicants with skills to support the future health care models in ABUHB.

The Health Board actively supports consultant doctors to undertake funded 3 month formal sabbaticals through an annual application process.

Facilities: shared office accommodation and secretarial support with full IT facilities will be provided.

Free parking is available across all Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Sites.

This position involves Regulated Activity with children and adults as defined by the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act (amended by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012) and the following checks will be undertaken following any conditional offer:
