Online applications are invited to apply for a full time junior fellow in obstetrics & gynaecology commencing 6th march 2019. This post is fixed term for 6 months based at princess ann hospital at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS).

This post is not recognised by the post graduate dean for training

UHS provides services to 1.3 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, plus specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children's intensive care to more than 3 million people in central southern England and the Channel Islands.

The Trust is also a major centre for teaching and research in association with the University of Southampton and partners including the Medical Research Council and Wellcome Trust.

The Southampton Maternity Service spans the acute hospital setting and the community ensuring that women receive care across the continuum from before pregnancy to postnatal periods. The unit is co-located with a large tertiary Neonatal Unit with a total of 36 cots.

In 2017 there were approximately 6000 births occurring on three sites: the Princess Anne Hospital labour ward (obstetric led births); the co–located Broadlands Birth Centre (midwife-led births); and the stand-alone New Forest Birth Centre (NFBC) at Ashurst. For women who are considered to be at low risk, midwifery led care is encouraged and a choice of birthplace is offered inclusive of home birth. There is a regional fetal and maternal medicine service and high-risk antenatal clinics are increasingly focused on specific conditions with women referred to specific clinics if they have congenital heart disease, endocrine disease, epilepsy, drug use, monochorionic twins, previous preterm labour or other relevant medical co morbidities.

UHS provides an extensive range of general and specialised tertiary level gynaecology services also based at the Princess Anne Hospital. These include advanced laparoscopic, gynae-oncology, urogynaecology and pelvic floor surgery. There is also a well-developed early pregnancy diagnostic and management service. Out-patient facilities include comprehensive obstetric and gynaecology ultrasound services, hysteroscopy, colposcopy, urodynamics, the Complete Fertility Unit and women’s physiotherapy.

This post therefore provides opportunities to experience a diverse range of obstetric and gynaecological services in our busy tertiary unit.

There is a three tier rota and this post is part of the 1st on call tier with a resident Junior Registrar (ST3-5) second on call and Senior Registrar (ST6/7 or post-CCT Fellow) or Consultant present at all times. Consultant obstetric presence on labour ward is now at 100+ hours and as such supervision is ideal for those at junior levels to build upon existing practical skills and decision making.

Weekly timetabled activities include outpatient clinics and theatres in addition to on call sessions and facilitate progression as per the RCOG speciality training curriculum.

There is an active practice education department with regular educational sessions including PROMPT and monthly Maternity Quality, Education and Safety, Together (MQUEST) sessions. Participation in clinical governance activities is supported and expected. The department provides undergraduate training for medical students from the University of Southampton and in addition to informal teaching there are opportunities for participation in formal teaching sessions and student mentoring.

This post is for a full time position although applications for less than full time positions are welcome.

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)
