Isle of Wight NHS Trust

Locum for Service –Cardiology– Specialist Registrar

Applications are invited for a Locum Appointment for Service (LAS) Specialist Registrar grade in Cardiology. This post is being advertised as the post is currently vacant on the Wessex Deanery Cardiology training scheme.

Applicants should have completed General Professional Training in hospital medicine and have passed the MRCP or equivalent.

The postholder will be based at St Mary’s Hospital, Newport, Isle of Wight. The postholder will be expected to work at ST3 or ST4 level in both Cardiology and General (Internal) Medicine.


The Cardiology Department has trained a Wessex Deanery Cardiology Specialist Registrar or LAT/LAS since 2005. There are ample opportunities for clinical cardiology experience in both in-patient and out-patient settings. The Cardiology department offers a well-equipped non-invasive diagnostic service, including trans-oesophageal echocardiography. There is a full permanent pacing service.

Subject to satisfactory performance, post holders wishing to apply to Wessex Deanery for a substantive National Training Number (NTN) post will be fully supported.

LAS posts do not attract a NTN, and the post will not normally count towards the award of the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).

The post is available from 01 January 2017 until the 02 August 2017. The post may be extendable beyond this date with Wessex Deanery approval, in which case it may become a Locum Appointment for Training (LAT) post, and experience may then be counted towards a CCT.

The post holder will participate in the medical on call rota. The rota pattern is full shift with banding 1B payable.

Single accommodation is available to rent in a modern residential block on the St Mary’s Hospital site. Family accommodation is subject to availability.

If you would like to discuss this post please contact Dr. Mark Connaughton, Consultant Cardiologist via his PA on  ( Phone number removed ) 

The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to live with excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Most of the Island is semi-rural with miles of unspoilt bridleways coursing through National Trust woods and over chalk downs. Spectacular cliff and coastal walks can be enjoyed all around the Island.

House prices compare favourably to the mainland and southern England with a wide choice of desirable property to suit all tastes. In addition, there are excellent public and private schools, and shopping and leisure facilities on the Island have improved enormously in recent years.

There are multiple frequent ferry links to the mainland and London can be reached in 90 minutes by rail from Southampton or Portsmouth. There is a regional airport at Southampton, just 30 minutes away, with flights to many European destinations as well as UK mainland cities.
