Renowned for its sandy beaches and granite cliffs, mild climate and close proximity to France, Guernsey offers a high quality of life in a beautiful environment. The unique consultant-delivered healthcare system offers a combination of high quality medicine and continuity of care.
We are seeking to appoint two additional Consultant Anaesthetists to join the existing 10 (9 whole time equivalent) anaesthetists providing the anaesthetic, intensive care and pain services to the island population of 65,000 people.
These posts have been created to facilitate an increase in elective orthopaedic capacity and daytime emergency anaesthetic provision.
The post holder will be expected to be on the GMC Specialist Register for Anaesthesia. It is envisaged that the new postholders will work flexibly across a range of anaesthetic sessions and while broad anaesthetic experience is essential, an interest in various subspecialties including ICU, paediatric anaesthesia or obstetric anaesthetic could be supported by the department.
Guernsey does not have junior doctors and so consultants have more direct patient involvement and are able to provide excellent continuity of care.
Enquiries can be made to Dr Graham Beck (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Anthea Pinder (email email@example.com). Information packs are available from firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the HR department on 01481 239988.
