Part Time 6 PA Fixed Term 6 Months
Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is made up of two of London’s best known teaching hospitals and employs over 13,650 staff and have over 2 million patient contacts a year.
Our annual turnover is now £13 billion.
The Department of Paediatric Allergy is seeking a part-time (6 PA) Locum Consultant to join a dynamic, enthusiastic and forward thinking team. The department was founded in 2006 and has grown rapidly since and is now the largest of its kind in the UK. We are currently involved in many exciting initiatives and are looking for an individual with appropriate skills to complement this team and help keep the service in the forefront of clinical and academic excellence.
The Department offers a wide and comprehensive range of services to children with allergic disorders. We have seen an increase in new patients referred into the service; therefore this post has been created to clear the current backlog of new patients and meet the demand of additional new patients. In addition we are exploring ways of reducing our face to face follow ups, to allow greater capacity to see new patients. We are looking for an innovative individual to work with the current team to establish telephone clinics for general allergy patients.
