Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
This job is now closed
Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Anaesthetist with an interest in Paediatric Anaesthesia. This is a mixture of replacement and new sessions to cover expanding surgical activity. With the current reconfiguration of services across the health Board, including the new Grange University Hospital, the post holder may be required to work at any site across the health board to meet service needs. On-call commitment will be based in the Grange University Hospital.
The Anaesthetic Directorate provides services to more than 30 theatres across the health Board. As well as undertaking elective theatre lists, we provide 24-hour cover for all emergency surgery, Trauma and Obstetrics as well as the cardiac arrest team and emergency department at the Grange University Hospital, Cwmbran. There is a 24 bedded adult critical care unit supported by an outreach team and an active acute and chronic pain management service supported by a team of pain nurses. Paediatric wards include a High-Dependency Unit and a level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The Obstetric unit serves approximately 5500 deliveries per year supported by 2 emergency theatres and a dedicated elective theatre.
Main duties of the job
The Grange University Hospital is supported by the local general hospitals of the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport, Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny, and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr in Ystrad Mynach. The Royal Gwent Hospital is a major elective and day surgery centre supported by a 9 bedded Surgical High Care, which has 24 hour anaesthetic staffing. Nevill Hall Hospital and Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr operate as day surgery centres.
The post holders will undertake 7 DCC's and 3 SPA sessions per week. Applicants are expected to take part in the anaesthetics on call rota at the Grange University Hospital. Rota frequency is currently 1 in 16 but can change with appointments and attracts a banding intensity supplement appropriate to service which will be agreed via job planning processes. Candidates are reminded of the Clinical Futures Programme and should expect agreed changes in their working patterns over forthcoming years. ABUHB is looking for capable applicants with skills to support the future health care models in ABUHB.
