Consultant in Paediatric Sleep Service
From- £77,913 p.a excl LZ
Full time -10 PAs 10 (5PA with ELCH, 5PA with RBH)


The Evelina London Children’s Hospital (ELCH) in conjunction with The Royal Brompton and Harefield Foundation Trust (RBH) is seeking a full time (10 PA) consultant to further develop our paediatric sleep medicine services.

The Paediatric Sleep Departments in both hospitals are amongst the busiest clinically, and most research active in the UK. This joint post builds on a growing relationship between the two sleep services, and the two hospital trusts.

The successful candidate will be integral member of both services which already network through the London Paediatric Sleep Group regular meetings, and joint clinics where challenging cases are seen together. Areas of particular interest at Evelina London are management of children with complex, rare and refractory sleep disorders including Narcolepsy, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and and and complex causes of sleep related breathing disorders.  

The Royal Brompton Hospital manages a unique cohort of children where severe cardiac and respiratory disorders contribute to sleep difficulties. Both hospitals also have well established non-invasive ventilation services that are increasingly working closely in discussions about networks and how best to provide care across a wide geographical region.

Candidates should have a strong interest and preferably experience in respiratory and non-respiratory causes of sleep problems. 

Good organisational skills are important, as is the ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams whilst upholding both Trusts’ values.

This is an excellent opportunity to join two first class teams in prestigious central London teaching hospitals.  The applicant should be both enthusiastic and flexible to meet the many needs of the department and contribute to the process of modernisation and improvement.

The appointee will run out-patient clinics, review patients on sleep unit (patients attending for sleep studies, new non-invasive ventilation patients and report sleep studies) contribute to multi-disciplinary team working and participate in multi-disciplinary team meetings. The appointee will provide innovation and leadership in the further development of the combined paediatric sleep services.
