£75,249 - £101,451 (plus a market rate supplement may be applicable as appropriate)
Clinical practice plus teaching and research – we think it equals the dream combination.
Set in the incredibly beautiful Lake District region, the West Cumbria Medical Education Centre (WCMEC) offers a heady combination of good working hours and a life-work balance that’s unmatched by other medical employers. But it’s not just the lifestyle that makes us so appealing – it’s the incredibly supportive environment in which the sharpest minds in medicine have come together to teach, conduct research and maintain an active role in practising medicine. This unusual combination is the result of a joint venture between The North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust (NCUH) and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), and is a marriage made in heaven!
We have recently recruited a number of junior and senior staff, and believe we offer something unique to our employees. With the shared aim of passing on knowledge and furthering advancement in medicine and medical education, we believe we’re providing a crucial service to future generations.
In this enticing role, you will therefore be responsible for undertaking research, and assisting in the further development of the research infrastructure at WCMEC. You will contribute to diversifying our portfolio of activity, conducting your own high-quality research and providing solid mentorship to junior members of staff. Assisting with the overall academic leadership of the school, you will also teach UCLan students and junior clinical colleagues. A key part of your role will also be your work as an Honorary Consultant Physician with Special Interest status at the newly-developed West Cumberland Hospital. Contributing to clinical service provision in an area of expertise such as Care of the Elderly, Gastroenterology, Respiratory Medicine, General Internal Medicine, or any other specialty that is complementary to our services, you will also take part in the out-of-hours on-call rota.
To undertake this unique role, you will need to be GMC registered with a licence to practise. On a medical specialist register at consultant level, you will be able to take full and independent responsibility for the clinical care of your patients and you will have substantial academic experience, including the transfer of knowledge. You will have a strong track record in research and in supervision of junior researchers. With amazing people skills, you will be a natural leader and have the passion needed to mentor and develop someone starting out in their career. Innovative and well respected in your field, you’ll be a crucial part of our future success.
