Here at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust we are looking for a Consultant General Paediatrician to join our team of 13 General Paediatricians, providing general paediatric cover in a hot-week rota 1:12, with 1:12 on call. Six other consultants on a separate rota cover the neonatal unit.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated colleague to join our general paediatric team. There is an opportunity to develop a special interest which compliments those within the department already. There are 8.5 PAs available for this post. There will be an opportunity to increase PAs by taking on a teaching role in the near future if the successful applicant is interested.

If you are successful in securing this post, you will be responsible for elective paediatric care, providing general paediatric clinics both at Musgrove Park Hospital and a peripheral clinic in Burnham-on-Sea.

About the Trust

Somerset NHS Foundation Trust is the first NHS trust on the English mainland to provide community, mental health and acute hospital services. We work with health and social care partners in Somerset to ensure that we deliver outstanding services that meet the needs of our population.

Our trust was formed on 1 April 2020 when Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust merged. We provide community and mental health services across the whole of Somerset and acute hospital services in the north, west and centre of the county and beyond.

Location

Somerset offers you the chance to live near some of the UK's most desirable locations; from the beaches in North Devon and Cornwall, to the cosmopolitan centres of Bristol, Bath and Exeter, whilst also being less than 2 hours from London. The County town of Taunton has diverse shopping, restaurants, and regularly hosts international music and sporting fixtures.

The South West of England is a highly desirable place to live. Compared to other regions, house prices in the area are quite reasonable. Rural properties in many of the pretty villages in South Somerset and North Dorset are within easy commute to the hospital.

If you've got family commitments, or are looking to settle down, Somerset offers some of the best schools in the country ranging from Public institutions such as Millfield, Queens College, Taunton School, Kings College, Wellington, and Blundell's, to award winning state schools such as Richard Huish College which has been ranked in the top 10 of A-level providers nationally for the last eight years, through to secondary's ranking in the top 5% nationally such as The Castle school in Taunton.
