The trust provides a high quality, comprehensive range of health services from leading edge tertiary and trauma care to community services, delivered from 2 hospital sites, St.George’s Hospital in Tooting and Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton, and from St John’s Therapy Centre, 11 health centres and clinics, schools, nursing homes and people’s own homes.

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Department of Neurology

The Atkinson Morley Neuroscience Rotations (2016-17)
4 ST1/ST2 posts are available providing 12 months training each

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides acute and long term neurological services to 34 million inhabitants in the region. The neuroscience centre is located in the Atkinson Morley Wing at St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and provides state of the art facilities for diagnosis and treatment in all branches of neurology.

These posts are not formally recognised for core or higher training nor do they attract an NTN. However, they do offer excellent experience and access to the same educational opportunities as our core trainees. We work very hard to deliver high quality training. Previous trainees have gone on to secure NTNs in neurology, neurosurgery, ACCS, radiology or allied disciplines.

The rotations are very much geared to clinical neuroscience as a career.

These posts have been especially popular with candidates who have completed ST2 training and are looking to invest a year gaining experience and skills in clinical neurosciences prior to applying for an ST3 position. ST3 level 'acting up” experience would be available to suitable candidates. We also have an excellent track record of helping more junior candidates go on to secure CMT and ST rotations.

The neurology posts are 9 a.m. to 5.p.m., although on call shifts will be available in these rotations for those interested.

The posts are available for 12 months starting in August 2016.
