Applications are invited for two Consultants in Paediatric Palliative Medicine at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

An exciting new development has been funded by NHS England to grow a full regional, multidisciplinary and integrated Palliative Medicine service for children across the East of England.

This will build on an established and highly successful Children’s Palliative Care service, delivered using a managed clinical network (MCN) approach.

These two posts will lead and shape the future of the service which offers symptom management, palliative and end of life care to babies, children with life-limiting conditions and their families in their place of choice and across all settings.

You will be fully registered with the GMC and ideally have a CCT in Paediatric Palliative Medicine or be within six months of award of CCT at the time of interview. Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.

As part of our commitment to supporting the medical workforce in the part they play in delivering an excellent caring service to patients, all newly appointed Consultants attend our five-day Consultant Development programme within a year of joining the Trust. Leadership is a key requirement of doctors professional work and this innovative programme is designed to support Consultants to hone the leadership and management skills they need to succeed at CUH.
