9 Month Fixed Term/Secondment Opportunity to commenceFebruary 2020

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced clinician to join the community paediatric team for a fixed term period. The Community Child Health team at the RD&E are a team of consultants, speciality doctors and clinical nurse specialists. We carry out work in the following areas:

  • Developmental assessment, investigation and diagnosis in pre-school children

  • On-going medical management of neuro-disability in children and young people up to the age of 18 years (or school leaving age if at special school). e.g. Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Sensory Impairment, Neurofibromatosis, Tuberous sclerosis, Neuromuscular conditions and other congenital/inherited conditions in which health surveillance is required

  • Medical input to multidisciplinary assessment of school age children in whom there are neurodevelopmental concerns, and on-going management of ADHD as clinically indicated.

  • Medical input as per statutory requirements - Children in Care, Safeguarding, SEND

We work closely with other health professionals and agencies, as part of the multidisciplinary team. Clinics are held in locations close to child’s home or school. Special school clinics are vital in the on-going health surveillance and management of children and young people with complex needs by allowing easier access for parents / carers compared to a hospital based clinic, include all members of the multidisciplinary team and the child / young person does not miss school. In addition to scheduled clinic appointments, we may attend Team around the Family (TAF) or Annual Review meetings, if necessary, and carry out joint consultations with other health professionals.

Are you self-motivated and ready for a challenge? Do you have a commitment to quality? Do you possess a high level of communication and interpersonal skills and enjoy working collaboratively across professional and organisational boundaries? And if you are passionate about working with young people and their families then we want to hear from you.

Our vision is to provide safe, high quality seamless services delivered with courtesy and respect. To achieve our vision we expect all our staff to uphold our Trust values. Our Trust values are: Honesty, Openness & Integrity Fairness Inclusion & Collaboration Respect & Dignity

***Preference will be given to staff with ‘Priority’ and 'At Risk' status including NHS At Risk staff throughout Devon.***
