Online applications are invited for a junior fellow (SHO) in cardiology commencing November 2018. This post is fixed term for 6 months in the first instance.

There may be the opportunity to extend, depending on the successful applicants performance and career aspirations


The successful applicant will join a team of 10 SHOs in cardiology. The post involves acute and elective admissions in Cardiology, as well as dedicated outpatient clinics. The successful applicant will gain extensive experience of acute cardiology as the post involves rotating through the 15 bedded CCU and 5 bedded cardiac high care unit. The rota is a 1:10 shift pattern.


The cardiac unit is also the tertiary referral centre for the Wessex region and so the post is ideal for any candidates sitting the MRCP examination. In addition any individuals who have MRCP but are looking for additional cardiology experience prior to specialist training would be encouraged to apply – opportunities for gaining experience in echocardiography and exposure to cath lab procedures can be arranged upon request.


Appointment will be made under local contractual terms and conditions of service for Trust appointed (non-training fellow doctors and dentists) which will be published and available at time of offers.


Grades for Trust appointed (non-training) fellows will be paid a basic salary at a nodal pay point linked to the grade, at the rate set out in the National Medical and Dental pay circular. Basic salary detailed below plus any additional remuneration (as applicable) for hours set out in the doctors work schedule (e.g. additional hours, weekend allowance, and any hours which attract enhanced pay)


Basic Salary MT03        £37,191
