Job Description

We are looking to appoint a full-time Senior Clinical Fellow in Stroke Medicine at the Royal London Hospital to cover a gap that has arisen within our specialty training program. The post is available immediately until 5th February 2020 in the first instance.

This is a middle-grade post providing medical cover to the 26-beded stroke unit at the Royal London Hospital. These comprise 12 hyperacute (HASU) beds serving the inner north east sector of London (one of the 8 London HASUs and one of the 4 London Thrombectomy centres) plus 14 acute stroke unit (ASU) beds for Tower Hamlets.

There is a non-resident out of hours oncall commitment working a 1:6 rota covering thrombolysis and thrombectomy calls, stroke referrals and stroke inpatients. This post attracts an oncall banding supplement as per the new contract.

You will be joining the department at a particularly exciting time, having been commissioned as one of the 4 thrombectomy centres in London. You will be working as part of a highly committed team in one of the largest hospitals in Europe with state of the art facilities for stroke.

This post would be most suitable for an experienced ST1-2 who has completed Core Medical training with MRCP (or equivalent), and wishes to gain specific experience and training in thrombolysis and stroke medicine, perhaps with a view to pursuing related ST3 training. More junior candidates however will be considered for an alternative clinical fellow grade position.

Any candidates currently holding an NTN in a related specialty, eligible for sub-specialty accreditation in Stroke Medicine are asked to contact us in advance to discuss their options, but as it stands this is a non-training grade post.
