Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Nodal Point 4 - £46,208 (ST3+ Equivalent)
Fixed Term – 1 year (6 months Neonatology and 6 months Paed Surgery)
Full-time: Two posts are available, both to start in October 2018 (there is some flexibility on start date that can be negotiated with a successful candidate). One will begin in neonatology and one in paediatric surgery, the two posts will rotate in April 2019.

Applications are invited for Senior Clinical Fellows (CT/ST2/ST3-8) in Neonatology & Paediatric Surgery at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, located on the St Thomas’ Hospital site

The posts will form a year-long rotation with six months spent in neonates as a senior clinical fellow (CT/ST2-3 or equivalent level experience) and six months in paediatric surgery as a senior clinical fellow (ST3-8 equivalent) at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.  The neonatal posts are based in the neonatal unit at St Thomas’ which is the largest unit and includes the busiest neonatal surgical practice in London. The surgical periods will be based in the Evelina London Children’s Hospital where major elective surgery is carried out and emergency surgical patients are admitted. Routine day case surgery is carried out at University Hospital Lewisham.  

Duties on the neonatal unit are worked on a full shift system; the surgical middle grade doctors work an on-call system.

These posts are designed to appeal to applicants who have finished (or will have finished) core surgical training and intend to pursue a career in paediatric surgery but have not yet gained a training number. They offer the opportunity to gain value-adding experience in neonatology and middle grade experience in paediatric surgery that will enhance a future application for a national training number in paediatric surgery.

These are not recognised training posts but attract the same training opportunities, including study leave, named educational supervisor and a very active educational program. We have a good track record in successfully supporting trainees in gaining training numbers at subsequent application rounds.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
