Locum Consultant General Surgery

This post will have flexible sessions across the Clyde sites.

General Surgery emergency receiving will be undertaken on the Inverclyde Royal Hospital site.

There are currently 11 consultant general surgical posts within the RAH and 5 at IRH. The consultants work across the 3 sites covering the major sub-specialities of Upper GI, Breast and Colorectal.  Each sub-specialty employs a team approach with close links to the regional Managed Clinical Networks.

Applications are sought from suitably trained individuals who are able to provide an elective and emergency general surgical service at consultant level.

In addition to providing clinical services the successful candidate will be required to participate in the training and assessment of junior staff and to undertake the administrative duties required in a consultant job. This will include but not be exclusive to the maintenance of appropriate patient records, keeping and participating in personal and unit audit and the retention of documentation for appraisal. All consultants are required to have an annual appraisal.

Surgical trainees, at all levels, rotate from the West of Scotland Deanery and are based at the sites. Teaching of Undergraduate medical students, trainee surgeons and visiting surgeons from overseas is considered an integral part of the work of the Sector.  It is anticipated that the appointee would contribute in a significant way to the education of Surgeons in training.

Emergency Surgery for the post is based at Inverclyde Royal Hospital (1:5) with clinics, endoscopy and elective surgery across Clyde. 

Clinical Nurse Specialists are valued members of the teams.

Applicants should have a broad surgical training and should have full GMC registration.
