Job Details

Applications are invited for our Consultant Neurologist position based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, to join the existing team of six Consultants.

The Neurology Department works closely with the Department of Neurosurgery (five Consultants), supported by Neuroradiology, Clinical Neurophysiology, Neuropathology, Liaison Psychiatry, Neuropsychology and a Neurorehabilitation team. We have dedicated, skilled Specialist Nurses that work alongside Clinicians. A diverse multi-disciplinary team manages patients in our 10 bedded, dedicated Neurology ward and there is a patient infusion unit for patients on regular intravenous treatments treated as outpatients. Aberdeen Royal Infirmary is a teaching hospital with strong links to two Universities in Aberdeen and so there are excellent opportunities for successful applicants to develop teaching and research interests.

This is a replacement post for a Consultant who is retiring. It is envisaged that a full-time appointee will be employed on a 10 PA session (8 plus 2) contract and will undertake three Neurology outpatient clinics per week including a subspecialty clinic/s. Depending on the candidate's area of interest, a sub specialist interest may be considered. Candidates with an interest in Epilepsy or Muscle disorders are welcomed but other specialist interests could also be developed.

The appointee will take part in an on-call rota on a pro-rata basis. Currently full-time members of staff provide cover for in-patients and emergencies 1 week in 5 and do evening and weekends on call 1 in 6. The appointee will contribute to undergraduate teaching, postgraduate education, training and supervision of Neurology Specialty Trainees and departmental administration.

Full registration with a licence to practise with the GMC is required. For more information visit
