Chief Registrar Medicine

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated trainee physician (ST4 or above) with an interest in leadership and management to join the Division of Medicine at North Bristol NHS Trust as a chief registrar.

The chief registrar role provides senior higher specialty trainees with the opportunity to develop valuable skills in leadership and management, with 40% protected time to put these skills into practice by developing initiatives that address local challenges. Chief registrars have a tangible impact on service improvement, workforce transformation, engagement and morale, and education and training, and work to deliver better outcomes for patients, colleagues and organisations.

The successful candidate will benefit from a flexible training model that enables them to develop a portfolio of skills and experience that will benefit future consultant posts and leadership roles, and build a profile that marks them out as a future clinical leader.

The role will suit trainees who:

  • Are comfortable working in uncertain environments and across traditional boundaries
  • Relish the opportunity to develop their own ideas and initiatives
  • Are committed to and passionate about improving the NHS.

The Chief registrar will receive support locally from both the Clinical Director for Medicine, an Assistant General Manager and an educational supervisor for specialty within North Bristol Trust, and nationally from the bespoke leadership and management development programme provided by the RCP.

The RCP leadership and management development programme commences in August/September 2018 and will involve some travel. Travel and accommodation expenses will be available.

Applications are open to trainee physicians:

  • At ST4 or above
  • Working full time part time
  • With a national training number
  • With full GMC registration.

This is a fixed-term role for minimum of 12 months. The role can be undertaken in programme or out of programme (training or experience).

Applications must be discussed with the educational supervisor and training programme director (TPD), and permission to apply must be granted by the TPD prior to application.

Closing Date:  19th February 2019

Salary Range: based on applicants current salary/pay protection

In addition to the above there may be a supplement for out of hours working.

Please note, North Bristol NHS Trust does not pay for interview expenses.

Late applications will not be accepted
