AVON AND SOMERSET CONSTABULARY

Medical Adviser

Salary Band £83,829 – £135,930 NHS Senior Occupational Physician

37 hours per week

We are seeking to appoint an experienced Medical Adviser to manage our Occupational Health Team and lead the way in continuing to deliver a first class Occupational Health Service for Avon and Somerset Constabulary in support of those who experience health problems and by providing advice to the organisation on promoting healthy living.

You should hold a full GMC registration, be an experienced Occupational Health Physician, holding a MFOM or FFOM. (Applicants who are qualified to AFOM may be considered, dependent on the background and related experience.)

Roles within the Force range from the physical to the intellectual, and the casework reflects this in the staff who present themselves for help. It will be part of your role to understand the demands of jobs and to provide individual health guidance to meet staff and the Constabulary’s needs. Support provided by the team for health is a vital part of the provision of Policing Services for both police officers and police staff.

The South West is a sought after area in which to live and work, and the Occupational Health Team is based in a separate modern office block close to the Constabulary Headquarters in Portishead, near Bristol.

To download an application form please visit our website www.avonandsomerset.police.uk or alternatively please call 01275 816046 and leave a message on the answer phone.

Please quote reference 162/12.

Potential applicants will be sent an information pack and the opportunity to speak with the current post holder, who is leaving the Constabulary due to retirement.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 6th July.
