Job Description

Transform your outlook, transform local healthcare, transform your career…

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is on a journey. Out of special measures and with some bold and exciting plans for the future, we are an ambitious trust that is going places, and we want you to join us.

With three hospitals, including our flagship Queen’s Hospital, across the central regions of East and South Staffordshire and Southern Derbyshire, we are at the forefront of discussions about transforming local healthcare.

Will you come with us on our journey to Be The Best? Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for.


By joining Burton Hospitals, there are plenty of opportunities to further your career and to be hands-on in these exciting development projects. Our Specialty Doctor posts offer scheduling flexibility, innovative rotational opportunities with our neighbouring Trust, and a nationally recognised commitment to training and education, as well as great benefits including a highly rated pension scheme, an on-site nursery rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted, and a salary sacrifice scheme for childcare and car leasing.

Our Staffordshire/Derbyshire location means we can offer areas of outstanding natural beauty for making the most of your leisure time, as well as vibrant, family-friendly communities and easy access to major cities. In short, we love it here, and we want you to join us.

We are looking for a full-time Specialty Doctor in Neurology at Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The successful applicant will be expected to work as part of a wider team under the clinical supervision of both University Hospitals North Staffs (UHNS) and Royal Derby Hospital (RDH).

We offer the best of the Staffordshire and Derbyshire regions when it comes to relocation opportunities and life/work balance. Our main hospital, Queen’s in Burton upon Trent, borders the National Forest and is within easy reach of the Peak District, offering outstanding natural beauty and the opportunity to take part in healthful pursuits such as hiking, biking and camping. We are within easy travelling distance of major cities like Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham for those who prefer metro living, but there are also lots of attractive village communities and excellent schools for those looking to settle with a family.

We’re happy to talk to you and provide advice on housing, schooling and social life in our region. We love it here and are happy to share our tips to help get you settled.

Please note:

  • Applicants must have full GMC registration and hold a licence to practice.
  • Further conditions have been implemented by the Trust that have been negotiated with the Medical and Dental Local Negotiating Committee. The national salary scale for Specialty Doctor appointments will apply (MC46).

We encourage you to come and visit the department and meet our staff, and to talk about relocation. Please contact us for an informal chat or visit, by contacting:
