Locum Consultant

Job Description

This is a 10 PA locum appointment for a Consultant in Otolaryngology. This post will be available immediately and the initial appointment will be for six months.

The Locum ENT Consultant post will be an exciting opportunity to work flexibly in the ENT department at Leeds. The department consists of 11 ENT Consultants with six middle grades. The post holder will cover clinic and theatre sessions, made vacant by colleagues' leave. These flexible sessions will be planned with a minimum period of six weeks so that a firm timetable more than one month in advance will be known. This will allow a more efficient use of theatre and clinic space.

We are looking for a dynamic individual to fill this Locum Consultant post within the ENT Department at The Leeds General Infirmary/St James’s University Hospital. The creation of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust represents a unique opportunity for the city to become home to one of the leading health care institutions in the world, excelling in patient care, teaching and research.

Leeds is a large city with the third largest metropolitan population in the country and has the fastest growing economy outside London. The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest NHS Trusts in the UK.

The successful applicant should hold accreditation in FRCS (ORL-HNS) or equivalent, and should be on the Specialist Register or within six months of being admitted to the Register for trainees if currently in a training programme within the UK, or have references which have been authorised by the Deputy Medical Director and Clinical Director.

Consideration will also be given to applicants who wish to work full or part time and those wishing to job share, with or without job share partners.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the hospital which can be arranged by contacting:

Mr J Woodhead, Clinical Director, ENT, Telephone  ( Phone number removed )
