Job Ref:

Medacs Healthcare is currently looking for a Consultant in Medical Microbiology to be based at a large NHS hospital in Sussex.

SALARY SCALE: £76,761 to £103,490 per annum

The successful candidate will hold the new Consultant contract with 10 Programmed Activities (PAs). The appointee will join the existing three Consultant Medical Microbiologists as a replacement for a retiring colleague.

Each Consultant Microbiologist takes on a lead role on a rotational basis: Trust Laboratory Lead Consultant for Microbiology, Antimicrobial Lead, Infection Prevention and Control Lead and Clinical Lead. Each Consultant Microbiologist will provide day to day infection prevention and control advice whilst on clinical duties on each site.
The appointee, together with the existing three Consultant Medical Microbiologists, will be responsible for the provision of a comprehensive, efficient and cost-effective clinical microbiology, infection prevention and control and laboratory service to the Trust and other users of the microbiology laboratory.

The Consultants on each site will be expected to share the responsibility of daily clinical and infection control duties based on a local rota. These duties include laboratory bench rounds, clinical ward rounds, reviewing microbiology results, authorising of microbiology reports, answering clinical and infection prevention and control queries from Clinicians, Nurses and General Practitioners and discussion with Infection Prevention and Control Nurses about on-going infection control issues daily.
There is very little travelling that is required between the sites in the current set of services.
The provision of an out-of-hours on-call service in microbiology and infection prevention and control is shared pro-rata with the other four Consultant Medical Microbiologists.

 FRCPath or evidence of equivalent qualification.
 Full and specialist registration (and a licence to practise) with the General Medical Council (GMC) (or eligible for registration within six months of interview)
 Wide experience in all aspects of Clinical Microbiology and Infection Prevention and Control
