In Plastic Surgery - suitable for ANY Medical or Surgical trainee

An opportunity has arisen for three dynamic and motivated doctors to join our department. If you are in the early years of training, or still undecided on a career path either in medicine or surgery, then this may be the post for you. Your training could be significantly enhanced by a period of work in plastic surgery.

These posts are suited to those looking to augment their portfolio for career progression in general practice, medicine, accident and emergency and any surgical specialties including ENT, general, breast, vascular, orthopaedic and plastic surgery.

The vacancies are to commence immediately for a period of 6 months, extendible to 12 months.

Variable length contracts may be available to suit your next training plans.

The post-holders do not need to have any previous experience in burns and plastic surgery, as we will provide training and full support at all times. You will however need to have successfully completed the FY1 year of training and worked within the NHS for at least 6 months in any medical or surgical speciality including general practice.

Our particular spheres of interest include skin cancer, acute and reconstructive surgery for burns, acute and elective hand surgery, breast reconstruction and paediatric plastic surgery. We also provide specialist care for patients under many different medical and surgical sub-specialities within the hospital. These include dermatology, general medicine, neurology, paediatrics, gynaecology, urology, general, breast, vascular and orthopaedic surgery.

We will encourage, support and provide the opportunity to study and practice for your post-graduate exams and gain further experience in a specialist centre. On-site educational programmes, simulation surgery and research/publication opportunities are also available. Deanery equivalent study budget and study leave are included.

The post will be on a 1:8 on-call commitment. This post will be remunerated on the MN15 or MN39 pay scale depending on previous experience.

The post is not recognised for training by the Postgraduate Dean, however appropriate study leave will be encouraged and supported.

Should applicants be currently or recently employed in a medical capacity the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust reserves the right to request a reference from the Medical Director and/or Responsible Officer of any previous or current employing organisations.

For further information please contact in the first instance Mrs Amanda Garside, Secretary to Miss Sharmila Jivan, Consultant Plastic Surgeon on telephone: (01924) 542285
