North Bristol NHS Trust, Medicine Division

Clinical Fellow (ST3+) in Cardiology

The Cardiology Specialty at North Bristol NHS Trust are seeking to recruit a full-time Clinical Fellow for a 12 month period from August 2018.  This is a post that will provide excellent opportunities for gaining experience in Cardiology, and we are seeking someone with enthusiasm for the specialty. 

The post is neither Royal College nor Postgraduate approved for training, but is educationally sound and well supported.  In particular, there will be training in transthoracic echocardiography, which will put the successful candidate in an excellent position to sit their BSE written examination.

The post holder will gain experience in the assessment of inpatients with a broad variety of acute and chronic cardiac conditions, as well as experience in out-patient work.  It is expected that the successful candidate will apply in the ST3 recruitment round for 2019.

Full Registration with the GMC is essential.

The successful candidate will be based in the state of the art Brunel Building in Southmead Hospital, which was opened in May 2014.  Located in North Bristol, there is easy access to/from the M4/M5/M32 motorways and public transport. For those who cycle, Bristol boasts excellent cycling facilities and was chosen as England’s first cycling city in 2008, and was the European green capital in 2015.  There is easy access to the centre of the city, which has theatres, shopping centres and a historical harbour-side. There is also an array of annual festivals and events, including the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival.

In 2014 Bristol was nominated by the Times as the best city to live in the UK, citing: “one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, varied and beautiful housing stock, decent schools, buzzy culture and night life and access to some fantastic countryside”.

Further details can be obtained from Dr Andrew Skyrme-Jones, Specialty Lead via his secretary on 0117 414 6370.

Closing Date – 23rd July 2018
