Consultant in Community Paediatrics - Guernsey
An excellent opportunity is now available for a Consultant in Community Paediatrics to take up a post on the beautiful island of Guernsey. This is an incredible location with some of the best beaches in the British Isles, cliff walks and stunning rural landscapes. Guernsey is located in the English Channel, 50 km off the north west coast of France, and 120 km from the English coast. There are regular flights and ferries form the UK and between Guernsey Alderney and France. With a great climate and low tax rate (the highest rate of income tax is 20%) this is an amazing opportunity to have a genuine work/life balance - plus the average commute is less than 15 minutes!
Guernsey is a Crown Dependency of the British Isles and so is not part of either the UK or the EU, it has its own government, legal system and healthcare system. Full GMC Specialist Registration in Community Paediatrics is essential, or you will be within 6 months of obtaining CCT/CESR or equivalent.
This is a new post which has been created to enable development of community services including those for autism and to provide further support for safeguarding. You will be joining a team of 5 General Paediatricians and working from the local district general hospital. The contract available is for 10 PAs per week (each session is 4 hours) and there is no out of hours on call commitment. There are excellent and comprehensive services available to support the development of the Community services. Previous experience in the management of children with autism and safeguarding is essential.
