Chief Registrar In Medicine

Cross Site -  Eastbourne &  Conquest

Candidates are invited to apply for an exciting opportunity at East Sussex Healthcare Trust NHS Trust. We are offering a 12 month fixed-term opportunity for ST4+ level candidates, to participate in an RCP pilot programme working as the Chief Registrar for Medicine. Candidates will be undertaking dual training in general internal medicine (GIM) and another specialty with experience of leading an acute unselected medical take and/ or participating in the acute medical take at ESHT.

The Chief Registrar is a healthcare leadership and management development role aimed at senior trainees nearing completion of training. The role carries responsibility for quality improvement, education and contribution to local service re-design and workforce transformation activity. As such the Chief Registrar will be a member of the Medical Director's medical leadership team and work closely with Clinical Director colleagues. They will also give a regular account of their work to the Chief Executive.

Chief Registrars are emergent leaders of the future and it is anticipated they will continue training in leadership and management after receiving their CCT, with the ultimate aim of achieving a senior leadership position including Clinical Director, Medical Director and Chief Executive.
The role is supported by an education and leadership programme delivered by the RCP. This will be a modular programme.

Participating in this programme will be classed as an Out of Programme experience (OOPE) and interested candidates will need to secure approval from their Educational Supervisor and TPD before submitting an application for the post (a letter of confirmation should be included with the application). It is envisaged that the Chief Registrar will spend 60% of their time in a clinical/ research post, and the remaining 40% of time will be protected for Chief Registrar responsibilities.

Starting date for the post is  3rd October 2018 changeover though the successful candidate may be able to start sooner if available.
