Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Management

We are looking to appoint a colleague to join our vibrant multi-disciplinary Pain Management team on a substantive basis.

The post will have a major commitment to pain medicine and will include weekday elective anaesthetic sessions, plus one-in-eight weekend trauma daytime sessions. The job is based on a 10 PA contract, with 7 direct clinical care sessions and 3 sessions to support professional activities.

The pain medicine sessions would include joint multidisciplinary working with our physiotherapists, psychologists and clinical nurse specialists. The service runs a Pain Management Programme using the Acceptance and Commitment model of care.

We are keen to support an interest in clinical research with access to excellent academic facilities through a strong link with the North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC). We currently have a PhD student involved in biomarker studies to objectively measure pain.

Wrexham Maelor hospital provides most of the sub specialities that would be expected in a 650 bed DGH, plus the regional upper GI service. Our maternity unit has just under 3000 deliveries per year in a consultant led unit.

Living in North-East Wales provides easy access to surrounding areas of outstanding natural beauty & the Snowdonia National Park, while still being convenient for the cities of Manchester & Liverpool with their international airports. The historic Roman city of Chester is just 13 miles away, from where London can be reached in around 2 hours by train.

Responsibility for health care in Wales is devolved to the Welsh Government, therefore the post will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Welsh Consultant Contract.
