Would you like to work with a highly enthusiastic and forward-thinking Community Child Health team in an interesting area of London?

The Specialist Children and Young People's Services (SCYPS) at East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) are currently advertising for 2 fixed-term posts to start as soon as possible for 6 months (extendable to 12 months). Both posts are for Clinical Fellows in Community Paediatrics, and are for full-time for a maximum of 10 programmed activities. Applicants looking to work less than full time should also apply.

The successful applicants will have the opportunity to participate in a range of consultant-led clinics and develop clinical skills in Neurodevelopmental Paediatrics, Neurodisability and Social Paediatrics, as matched to the experience and training needs of the post-holders as much as possible. There will also be the opportunity to develop other key skills for becoming a well-rounded, professionally curious and innovative Community Paediatrician.

Main duties of the job

The post-holder will be expected to work within the multidisciplinary team of community paediatricians, nurses and allied health professionals to provide a comprehensive community paediatric service to the population of Newham. The post-holder will be supervised by one of the consultants and teaching will be provided within the department as part of developing individuals and as a team.
