CONSULTANT POSTS IN Obstetrics and Gynaecology with an interest in minimal access surgery and benign gynaecological surgery, including pelvic floor surgery


Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and which is in close proximity to Leeds and York, Harrogate is an affluent town offering a very high standard of residential accommodation. There is a wide range of local schools which have an excellent national reputation in both the state and private sectors. There are numerous sporting, recreational and cultural activities available in the town or the surrounding area to suit most interests.

The trust gained level two CNST for maternity services in September 2013 and was rated as one of the highest performing trusts in the country in the CQC maternity patient satisfaction questionnaire.

This excellent-rated Trust is inviting applications for a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist post, with an interest to complement those in the department. This is a new post to support future service development in gynaecology. The post includes duties in general obstetrics and gynaecology.

The post holder will join a friendly, well-established and innovative multi-disciplinary team to support the delivery of high quality care to patients.

There are excellent opportunities for the post holder to develop new or existing services according to their clinical interests.
