This post is for a Consultant Cardiologist to join our team of 5 existing Cardiologists at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH). The appointee will be based principally at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
 Currently Acute Cardiac services are provided within SaTH at both the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) and at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH). Several of the present Cardiologists have commitments on both sites and flexibility of working will be essential in order to provide comprehensive Cardiac care.
 The Princess Royal Hospital has a 4 bedded CCU and a dedicated 20 bedded Cardiology Ward. The team comprises 3 Consultants, 3 Secretaries, a full complement of Junior Doctors, an outstanding and dedicated nursing staff, including specialist Cardiac Rehabilitation and Heart Failure Nurses, and an excellent Cardio-respiratory Department. Coronary Angiography/Pacemaker Implantation facilities are available on site. Should you be interested and have the necessary experience and qualifications in PCI, sessional arrangements may be negotiated with local tertiary providers (UHNST or RWHT) until planned local services are developed.
 There is currently a requirement to cover GIM emergency take on a 1:10 basis.
 Shropshire is an area of outstanding natural beauty and offers extensive outdoor recreational facilities and easy access to North Wales and the Welsh Coast. Housing standards are high in the county both in town and country with good local state and private schools. The M54 motorway starts just outside Shrewsbury and provides quick access to the national motorway network. It is essential that you possess or be within six months of obtaining a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Cardiology (and preferably GIM) at time of interview.
 Further information and application form can be obtained from
