Applications are invited for a locum consultant post in the Obstetrics to cover from 6th October 2016. This is a temporary post pending substantive appointment within that period.

We are looking for committed obstetricians who want to work in a large tertiary level unit. There is no gynaecology commitment in any of these posts.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.

Our staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.

As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia.

We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development.

The Obstetric department is a large tertiary level unit delivering 6000 babies per year located at the main Norfolk and Norwich University site on the outskirts of Norwich. A full range of subspecialist services are provided in fetal and maternal medicine with themed antenatal clinics of Maternal Medicine, Diabetes, Multiple Pregnancy, Genetics, VBAC, vulnerable women and a midwife delivered breech clinic. Within these new posts there may be opportunity to develop a specialised themed antenatal clinic. Our neonatal unit provides full intensive care facilities and neonatal surgery meaning we accept in-utero transfers from 23 weeks. The O&G department has 22 consultants (11 in gynaecology, 9 in obstetrics) and consistently has attracted high ratings from our O&G trainees in the annual GMC survey. When on call the consultants are supported by a 3 tier system of junior medical staff.
