We are the largest centre in Europe for the care of inherited cardiovascular disease in children, looking after over 4,000 outpatients per year, and are part of the UCLP Inherited Cardiovascular Diseases service. The service at GOS is part of the Cardiac Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and includes disease-specific clinics for cardiomyopathies, inherited arrhythmia syndromes, aortopathy syndromes and rare diseases with cardiovascular involvement. Families are seen at Great Ormond Street for screening, diagnosis, evaluation and management. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team that includes clinical nurse specialists, clinician’s assistants, clinical psychologists and paediatric cardiac technicians, with close links to the electrophysiology, cardiac transplantation and clinical genetics teams. This post will give ample experience in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of children with inherited cardiac conditions, and will offer unique opportunities for clinical research.
The Fellow will be responsible for seeing patients and families in consultant-led outpatient clinics, the work-up and day to day management of new in-patients and the continuing care of current patients including the necessary administrative documentation.
