Clinical Fellow in Paediatric Transport Medicine

Post Details

This post is available from August 2018 for six months in the first instance. There may be the opportunity for suitable candidates to extend by further 6 months by mutual agreement.

NWTS are happy to consider interest from candidates who wish to have a deferred start date eg September 2018 or February / March 2019 for a Fixed Term post at NWTS.


Role of the fellow

The fellow is an integral part of the multidisciplinary transport team. The fellows are supervised by the consultants and will be appointed a mentor for their time with the service.

The main role of the fellow is to manage all aspects of a transfer, including giving advice at the initial referral call, co-ordinating the transport, stabilising the patient and ensuring a safe, efficient and cohesive transfer from referring centre to the accepting intensive care unit.

The position of fellow in paediatric transport medicine is a full time post. A minimum of six months of intensive care, paediatric anaesthesia or paediatric emergency medicine experience is required for transport fellows, and experience in congenital cardiac disease is desirable. The rotations are for a minimum of six months, with extended periods possible.

Full on the job training will be given, and all transfers will be supervised, either by an accompanying consultant in transport medicine, or by close telephone contact. The clinical fellow is expected to keep a log of all transfers and referrals in their national paediatric transport passport (approved by RCPCH PICMISAC) will be kept and reviewed by the mentor; issues arising from these transfers will be discussed on a regular basis.

During this time, it is anticipated that the fellow will be trained and become proficient in managing paediatric transfers from the initial referral, organising the team and transport, and in the stabilisation and management of the acutely sick child at the referring centre and en route.

It is also expected that the fellows will take an interest in the organisational aspects of transport medicine, including audit, quality assurance projects, presentation at appropriate forums and research in subjects pertaining to transport medicine and paediatric intensive care.

At the completion of the service term, the fellow will receive a formal appraisal from a supervisor.
