Description:

Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeon at The Golden Jubilee National Hospital.

We are looking for a dynamic and motivated candidate to join our team of 15 WTE orthopaedic consultants which includes one foot and ankle surgeon.

The department of Orthopaedics is one of the largest arthroplasty units in the United Kingdom, and during 2019/20 we plan to deliver over 4000 total hip and total knee replacements.

The foot and ankle service has been developing over the last few years with 550 procedures carried out during 2018/19. The majority of foot and ankle surgery is performed as day case and the case mix includes both primary and revision surgery for forefoot and hind foot reconstruction along with ankle arthroplasty and arthroscopy. There is a dedicated foot and ankle team to support the service and the unit has very good links with regional podiatry and orthotic services.

The department is continually striving to increase its links with national and international units and it is hoped that the new appointee will take the lead on facilitating an in-house foot and ankle fellowship programme for senior trainees.

This is a very exciting time to join the Golden Jubilee as we are set to increase as part of the national Elective Centre’s programme for ‘in demand’ specialties, and foot and ankle will be one of the services that will benefit from a new build project at the Golden Jubilee in purpose built new facilities as part of our Phase 2 elective expansion programme. This is due to open 2021/22 and will provide more capacity for patients in Scotland.

Applicants must be registered with the General Medical Council, be listed on the Specialist Register (or be within 6 months of entry) and hold a higher surgical qualification in Orthopaedics from one of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons or equivalent, if from out with the UK.
