The Children's Acute Transport Service (CATS) stabilises & transports critically ill & injured children into the Intensive Care facilities in North Thames.

The successful applicants will be working equally as part of a team of 10 Specialist Registrars/Clinical Fellows. There may, on occasion, be the opportunity to work within other areas of the critical care directorate at GOSH. The service currently undertakes over 1200 retrievals per year with a wide range of paediatric, neonatal surgical and cardiac intensive care cases, including those referred for ECMO support.

Supernumerary flexible time is included in every 10 week cycle to allow for participation in clinical audit and to cater to the training needs of the individual.
