The applicant will be working on the tier 2 (middle grade) rota on the general paediatric ward and level 2 neonatal unit, and will be required to do both day time duties, and ‘on calls’. This is a part time post (working Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with 50% of the ‘full time’ on call). There are 9 doctors on the middle grade rota, on a full shift rota (band 1A) which includes day time duties and ‘on calls’. The rota is EWTD compliant. Currently there is one part time trust grade registrar, who works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and covers 50% of the ‘full time’ on call rota. This post is to compliment the other part time post, hence between the 2 posts cover a ‘full time’ slot on the rota.
The middle grade doctors work on both the general paediatric ward (including high dependency unit and paediatric observation and assessment unit), the level 2 neonatal unit and out patients clinics (consultant supervised). The middle grade doctors are supported by separate consultant hot weeks on both the paediatric and the neonatal unit, and there are separate on call rotas. There are full tier 1 rotas on both the paediatric and neonatal unit. As the post holder will be ‘second on call’ it is essential they have both paediatric and neonatal experience and have APLS and NLS qualifications. They need to have sufficient experience to support the tier one doctors and ANNPs, review patients and make management decisions. They need to be able to manage both neonatal and paediatric emergencies, until the consultant arrives.
