Applicants are invited to apply for senior fellows (Registrar ST3+ equivalent) in Paediatric Intensive Care at Southampton General Hospital commencing August/September 2020.  This post is fixed term for 6 months. No prior experience of PICU is required, but a minimum of two years of either paediatrics (including neonates) OR anaesthesia OR ICU is essential.

Southampton PICU is a 16 bedded mixed intensive care unit admitting around 1000 patients each year. We are the regional referral centre for Wessex and run the combined Southampton Oxford retrieval team (SORT) service for the Wessex / Oxford network, moving around 500 critically ill and injured children per year.

Our case mix includes cardiac, ECMO, neonatal and neurosurgical cases as well as the full range of general and paediatric sub-speciality work. We are the Wessex paediatric major trauma centre, with a dedicated paediatric emergency department on site. The successful applicant will form part of the middle grade rota for PICU, which includes shifts for the retrieval service. Full retrieval training will be provided for those without paediatric transport experience. We run a comprehensive induction and training programme for all staff starting PICU. This is a great opportunity for trainees wanting PICU experience before progressing with training or before taking substantive consultant posts.

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

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 – MT04     £49,036
