Duties will include the assessment and management of children in the Paediatric Emergency Department and review and management of all paediatric patients on the wards including the sub-specialty patients.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust includes Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie Hospitals. We are one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the country with an outstanding reputation that is down to the exceptional people that work here.

Our philosophy is to keep the patient at the heart of everything we do. Every person that works for the Trust, regardless of their role, comes into contact with our patients and visitors and is expected to uphold our values of Together – Safe, Kind, Excellent at all times.

We look for people who are willing to go the extra mile, not because they are asked to, but because they are committed to being part of a healthcare team that delivers an excellent caring service to our patients.
