Job Description:

Staff Specialist Paediatrics Acute & General NSW 30 mins to the Coast

Join this team of 5 paediatricians in a department with a tradition of innovation and leadership, only half an hour's drive from the gorgeous NSW coast, in a local community of 70,000 and a wider community of 200,000.  You will be at the fastest going community hospital in inland NSW, with around 1600 births per annum.  The role will involve organisation and provision of inpatient care and ambulatory care, plus services at the Rural Referral Hospital plus ambulatory clinics at neighbouring towns.               

The ED sees around 11,000 children and young people per annum.   The Children's Ward has 16 beds, including 4 designated adolescent beds, with approximately 1000 medical admissions per annum, as well as providing paediatric surgical, orthopaedic and ENT services.   The Paediatric Clinic includes 5 purpose-designed consulting rooms where clinics include general paediatric as well as combined clinics with consultants in paediatric cardiology, surgery, respiratory, endocinology, neurology and dietetics.  The service includes a 12 bed level 2 Special Care Nursery (SCN), providing services to those babies, as well as step-down care from the NICU at a tertiary service around 40 mins away. The SCN acts as a referral centre for babies born in smaller hospitals throughout this health region. You will be actively involved in teaching medical students and the opportunity exists for clinical research. The hospital has taken a leadership role in the Paediatric BTF Program for the early recognition of deteriorating patient. The unit is actively involved in other clinical studies. If you have any sub-specialty interests these and your further professional development needs can be met by linking into the regional tertiary training hospital, only a short drive away.
