These posts are ideal for paediatricians who have training in both general paediatrics and neonates and are able to work as part of a Middle grade rota (Registrar level) covering the paediatric service and level 1 SCBU.

King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patients contacts per year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) sites in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) in Bromley.


The Trust has a strong and committed leadership team which is driving the organisation’s turnaround and has been recognised as one of the fastest in the country. Committed to delivering the highest quality of patient care, investment in paediatric services in the form of talented professionals is coupled with continued strong growth and service development both as a stand-alone service and through collaborative partnerships between the teams based at the Denmark Hill sites and through the King Health Partnership. We are proud of the high quality patient care we deliver in which our community has confidence and are committed to valuing all of our staff as individuals and helping each to realise their full potential.


The Princess Royal University Hospital serves the London Borough of Bromley in South East London which is the largest of the London boroughs with largest green belt. Bromley has an increasingly diverse and affluent population. The area benefits from affordable housing, excellent local schools (including state grammar and independent options) and has quick and easy access to both Central London and the Kent countryside.


Job Summary:


The post holder will be responsible for the day to day management of patients under the supervision of a consultant paediatrician. Clinical responsibilities will include:

  • Neonatal Unit/Children’s Ward- ward rounds, discharge planning, acute admissions and general paediatric work. In hours and out of hours pro-rata
  • Responsibility for either neonatal unit, or Children’s Ward, alternating with the other middle grade doctors.
  • Regular attendance and active participation in outpatient clinics. For appropriate candidates there will be the opportunity to develop a special interest within general duties/outpatient work.
  • Participation in overall supervision and education of junior doctors and medical students.
  • Taking an active part in the department’s education programme.
  • Taking an active part in audit. An audit project is expected in this post.

It is expected that Middle grade doctors will assist in providing on-call duties for unexpected sickness/leave of colleagues. In the event of a clinical session being cancelled, the Doctor would be expected to remain available for alternative duties during that session. The duties of the post will include providing advice on medical management of surgical patients and the planning of complex inpatient care.

It may be appropriate for successful applicants to start as a junior clinical fellow (Senior House Officer equivalent). This is an option for those who have not previously working at Registrar level or who are new to the UK and have not previously working in the NHS. This would be reviewed regularly by the senior clinical team and a decision to transition to the Senior Clinical Fellow role (Registrar equivalent) would be a mutually agreed decision with the clinical tutor and educational supervisor.
