Are you looking for a job that lets you spend more time with your patients?
We are looking for a passionate, approachable and caring Specialty Doctor in Paediatrics to join our team at Noble's Hospital on the Isle of Man.
About the role and our team
The unique location, geography and constitution of the Island means that the Department provides a much wider range of services than would be expected in a comparative health authority or Social Services in the United Kingdom.
The acute Paediatric Service is based at Noble’s hospital, and the paediatric ward has a total complement of 17 beds. The average number of births is approximately 800 per annum, of which 12% are admitted to Special Care and 1 - 2% admitted to Intensive Care.
The work pattern of our specialty doctors is divided into a Regular day and an On Call day, with daytime work being divided into ward team, neonatal and post-natal team, and clinic team schedules. You will support elective and emergency paediatric and neonatal services for the Isle of Man, working in a seven person shift rota (resident on call).
This is a first on-call post but the ability to function at ST3 to ST4 level is essential as there are no middle grade staff and Consultants are non-resident.
We are looking for someone who is committed with great communication and team working skills to work with us to drive forward this service and ensure we continue to provide quality care for children within Noble's Hospital.
Why join us?
Working in the Isle of Man provides a fantastic opportunity to step away from NHS pressures and demands and work within a friendly and supportive working environment just a stone's throw away from the UK itself.
Our healthcare system is separate to the UK NHS and is provided by a system based on that in the UK, but is independently financed and administered within the Isle of Man; and our vision is to become the best small island based health and care system.
You will have access to our on-site Education and Training Centre and library, which includes our state of the art simulation lab.
