Paediatric Trust Grade Registrar (Tier 2 rota), Wythenshawe Hospital (MFT)

Part time (3 days a week, and ‘50% on call’)

Locum Post for 12 months – to start as soon as possible

The applicant will be working on the tier 2 (middle grade) rota on the general paediatric ward and level 2 neonatal unit, and will be required to do both day time duties, and ‘on calls’. This is a part time post (working Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with 50% of the ‘full time’ on call). There are 8 doctors on the full shift middle grade rota (band 1A) which includes day time duties and ‘on calls’. The rota is EWTD and new contract compliant. Currently, there is one part time trust grade registrar, who works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and covers 50% of the ‘full time’ on call rota. This post is to compliment the other part time post, hence between the 2 posts cover a ‘full time’ slot on the rota. 

The middle grade doctors work on both the general paediatric ward (including high dependency unit and paediatric observation and assessment unit), the level 2 neonatal unit and out patients clinics (consultant supervised). The middle grade doctors are supported by separate consultant hot weeks on both the paediatric and the neonatal unit, and there are separate on call consultant rotas. There are separate tier 1 rotas on both the paediatric and neonatal unit. As the post holder will be ‘second on call’ it is essential they have both paediatric and neonatal experience and have APLS and NLS qualifications. They need to have sufficient experience to support the tier one doctors and ANNPs, review patients and make management decisions. They need to be able to manage both neonatal and paediatric emergencies, until the consultant arrives.

The unit would help support the post holder to develop a special interest which would complement the department. The post holder will be expected to take part in audit, and guideline development. There are regular teaching sessions in the department and the post holder would be expected to take part in these.

The general paediatric ward has 24 beds (including 1 HDU bed), a 10 bed paediatric observation and assessment unit (open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week), and 8 bed day-case unit. There is a dedicated paediatric out-patient unit.

At MFT (Wythenshawe) there is also a level 2 neonatal unit providing stabilisation and intensive care (up to 48 hours) for babies 27 weeks and greater gestation. The unit has 21 cots with 2 short term intensive care cots, 4 high dependency and 15 special care cots. The unit has recently been refurbished. The neonatal unit supports the maternity unit which currently has around 4500 deliveries per year.
