About the role

Looking to make your mark? We have a new opportunity available for an O&G Specialist to join our team.

We are looking for a motivated clinician who is a Generalist. However, any special interest would be nurtured by the unit and colleagues. In particular a special interest in infertility, scanning, quality improvement/ governance, Obstetrics and Obstetrics leadership would be a good complement to the mix.

You will be joining a team of clinicians who are highly motivated, friendly and provides great peer support. Our team has a range of special interests including advanced laparoscopic, uro-gynaecology, gynae-oncology and obstetrics.

The unit currently has seven Senior Medical Officers (SMO)'s, and the on call roster is 1:7. The team is supported by eight registrars, two SHOs and one HO.

One of our senior SMO's has reduced his working hours and we are able to offer a 16 hours per week (0.4 FTE) role, however the unit is undergoing a service sizing and this may give the appointee an opportunity to further increase their FTE if they desire.
