Consultant Physician with
Special interest in Acute Medicine

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated team player to join our newly formed  dynamic team of Acute Physicians to further develop Acute and Urgent Care in NHS Forth Valley.  The  appointment is for 10 Programmed Activities per week and the post will be subject to the terms and  conditions of service of the Consultant Grade (Scotland).

Acute Medicine is a specialty which has received substantial investment in the last 12 months.  This has included the appointment of 3 new Consultants: Dr Daniel Beckett, Dr Andrea Strang and  Dr David Thetford.

NHS Forth Valley is undergoing a period of dynamic change in relation to the organisation of Acute and  Urgent Care. This is part of an ongoing programme of work of modernisation and improvement in relation  to unscheduled care. It is a particularly exciting time with services being remodelled to facilitate the  transfer of Acute Services to the new Forth Valley Royal Hospital at Larbert in summer 2011.

You will be expected to have a wide range of experience in Acute Medicine and/or General Medicine.   You must be on the Specialist Register or be within 6 months of the anticipated award of a CCT or CESR  (CP) at the time of interview for the post.  

You are encouraged to make contact and visit the department to meet senior staff.
