Trust Grade Clinical Fellow (Senior House Officer, ST1-2 Equivalent level) – STROKE & HASU

Princess Royal University Hospital 

We are delighted to be able to invite applications for a Junior clinical fellow/Senior House Officer post with an interest in Stroke Medicine, based at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) near Bromley in Kent. 

The hospital is part of the world-famous Kings College Hospital Foundation Trust and is situated in the leafy suburb of Bromley with easy access to central London as well as the Kent countryside. There are many excellent schools, restaurants and shopping facilities close by. 

The successful post-holder would support the development of our Stroke unit providing cover across our Hyper-acute Stroke Unit (HASU) and Stroke Unit (SU) spending a minimum of 12 months with the unit.  The post would be suitable for a doctor wishing to develop their foundation skills into a core medicine level and would provide an excellent opportunity for someone who wishes to apply for Core Medical Training in the UK at ST1-3+ level in time. Applicants from the UK or overseas would be welcome. 

The unit at the PRUH has 14 HASU beds, delivering 24/7 consultant-lead thrombolysis service. The attached Stroke Unit (SU) is a 26 bedded unit providing post-acute care and rehabilitation. 

You will join our dedicated and friendly Stroke specialist medical team who sit as part of the much larger Post-Acute Medicine care group. We provide excellent junior doctor support at Senior House Officer and foundation doctor level, as well as educational and clinical supervision, study leave and the opportunity to develop and change practice as you develop your portfolio and career, regardless of what level of experience you join us. You may also have the opportunity to develop your own Quality Improvement project. 

You will join a group of 28 Clinical Fellows who support at an SHO level across general medicine and will take part in an on call rota which will give you the opportunity to manage a wide range of medical conditions both within the Acute unit as well as back end wards out of hours – you will see a full range of medical conditions and have a real opportunity to develop your core medical/foundation skills. You will be supported by a team of 9 Stroke consultants, a number of which work across a number of different sites in the Trust, well as the on call medical consultants. Opportunities to rotate into Emergency Medicine or Post-Acute Medicine, especially Care of the Elderly, will be available in time should individuals wish to take their skills into a more specialist area during their employment. 

In addition, you will have access to the Post Graduate Education Centre on the PRUH site and to the various post graduate courses available.
