Online applications are invited for a part time post as a consultant in PICU (7.5 PA’s) commencing ASAP.  This post is permanent.

 University Hospital Southampton Foundation Trust (UHSFT) is a large teaching hospital, located on the south coast of England. Paediatric intensive care serves the needs of critically ill children across the south of England and all paediatric subspecialties located at UHS.

 Applications are invited for the post of part-time consultant in paediatric intensive care. This is a replacement post and the successful applicant will complete a team of 8 whole time equivalent paediatric intensivists. The post attracts a total of 7.5 programmed activities, exclusively within PICU. To maintain the balance of skills we are seeking applicants from an anaesthetic background.

Applicants should have the FRCA or equivalent and have completed 2 years of Paediatric Intensive Care (PIC) training in approved centres or be an existing consultant in PIC.

We’ve worked hard as a Trust to improve the efficiency of our services and as a result, we are currently in financial surplus. We are one of England's largest acute teaching trusts and have recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC. In the latest national NHS Staff Survey we ranked;

  • seventh in the country for staff engagement
  • fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care

 Southampton is an attractive place to live and work situated on the south coast, with an international airport and only an hour on the train from central London. The New Forest National Park and the beaches of the Jurassic coast are also right on our doorstep.

The city offers living costs 20% lower than those in London, 13 schools rated outstanding by Ofsted and 13 nearby green spaces to enjoy.

 Please note that GMC registration (with a licence to practice) and right to work in the UK are essential for this role.  Successful applicants will already have GMC registration or will be able to demonstrate they are eligible.  Applicants requiring Tier 2 sponsorship should ensure they meet the Home Office application criteria prior to submitting an application.
