Applications are invited to apply for a Fixed Term Contract Locum Consultant post in Acute Medicine at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. This is 23 month Fixed term contract.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Acute Physician or Specialty Physician with an interest in Acute Medicine to join our team of Acute Physicians. Candidates’ dual trained in General Internal Medicine and Specialty Medicine would be welcome to apply and specialty sessions would be considered and accommodated where possible.

“This role does not meet the Trust’s hard to recruit criteria. Therefore, please be advised relocation expenses will not be provided”.

The job plan on appointment will consist of a split of 8.75:1.25 DCC/SPA. The SPA component is made up of core activities (appraisal, revalidation, CME, routine departmental meetings etc.) and non-core activities. Non-core activities are discussed and agreed within the Trust (via an agreed tariff and, on occasion, through a personal agreement). Non-core SPA may reflect activities such as educational supervision, research, leadership and quality improvement. Following appointment, non-core SPA may be used to participate in our consultant development programme, or in acquiring or consolidating specific skills and expertise. Non-core SPA is only available if specific activities and objectives are mutually agreed in job planning.

There is a degree of flexibility within the job plan and this example is for illustrative purposes only. Where individuals have a speciality interest this can be considered and job planed if mutually beneficial.

This schedule outlines the Direct Clinical Care component (DCC) of the job plan. In addition the candidate will be on the General medial on call rota and MAU weekend rota. SPA activity and clinical admin can be delivered flexibly around the clinical shifts. SPA activity is outlined in the accompanying table and is delivered over the 5 week cycle rather than per week. It would be expected the successful candidate would organise their own timetable with regard to fitting this activity into the job plan. There would be flexibility to swap shifts to prevent longer periods of work inadvertently caused by the on call rotas.
