Consultant in Paediatric Intensive Care

Applications are invited for a full-time Consultant Paediatric Intensivist to join the PICU team based at the University Hospital of Wales site in Cardiff.  This locum post is available for a period of three months in the first instance and is pending recruitment to a substantive position in the near future.

Cardiff’s Paediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU) is based in the new Children’s Hospital for Wales which was opened in March 2015.  Cardiff Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) has 7 beds and is the only children’s intensive care unit located within Wales and accepts children requiring intensive care from all of mid and South Wales.  Cardiff paediatric high dependency unit (HDU) has four beds and provides high dependency care to all the tertiary specialties housed in the Children’s Hospital for Wales.

 Retrieval, education and audit both for the Unit and as part of the clinical network are major parts of the service and Consultants are expected to participate fully in their delivery with part of this post being based at WATCh (Wales and West Acute Transport for Children) headquarters in Bristol, delivering children from the region into both Cardiff and Bristol PICU’s.

This appointment comes at an exciting time as we prepare to become a major trauma centre.

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is recognised as a teaching centre of excellence in a wide range of clinical services.
