The Plastic Surgery Unit serves the North East of Scotland covering a widely scattered population of over 630,000. The post holder will have a specialist interest in complex Microvascular Surgery, in particular free flaps for immediate Breast Reconstruction Surgery, with a large workload of General Plastic Surgery (in particular skin) and Burns. It is expected that this post will become substantive post in near future. The successful candidate will join 6 existing full time Consultants based at the Teaching Hospital of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. The Plastic Surgery Unit carries out additional operating and outpatient sessions in Elgin and a number of peripheral locations throughout the North East. Close links exist between a number of other specialties on site and with an excellent range of support services on site.
The responsibilities of the post include: Plastic Surgery Inpatient and Outpatient Services at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and a peripheral clinic, and participation in a 1:6 on call rota. A specialism in Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction and Skin complexities is of preference. The duties of the post include involvement in Undergraduate and Postgraduate training.
