We are looking for a flexible, dynamic Physician to join our cohesive team of 15 Whole Time Equivalent (WTE) Consultants within the Clinical Service Centre of Medicine for Older People, Rehabilitation and Stroke.

Our Clinicians are encouraged to develop their special interests, striving for high quality care and innovative development of Services, in line with local and national agendas and targets.
Research and Audit activity is encouraged, and we have strong academic links with the University of Portsmouth, through Professor Martin Severs who is Associate Dean (Clinical Practice).
