DDRC Healthcare is a charity providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), training and research in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine. We are currently looking for a part-time senior/middle grade Doctor in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine.
As senior doctor the individual would be involved in a variety of roles. These include:
- Emergency care for divers with Decompression Illness (including some evening and weekend cover as part of the non-resident on-call rota)
- Clinical care for elective patients receiving HBO
- Occupational medicine opportunities
- Teaching – providing a wide variety of course to doctors and others
What we can offer:
The post will be an average of 2-4 sessions per week at DDRC Healthcare although this is open to negotiation. On-call commitments are flexible and offer an opportunity for additional remuneration. The successful candidate will be given fully funded specialist dive medicine training up to a DMAC Level 2 standard and the opportunity for further training within Occupational Medicine to develop their role at the charity.
Who we are looking for:
The ideal candidate will have full Independent Medical Practitioner status (Consultant or GP), but individuals with significant experience at a middle grade level, in particular working independently, would be considered. You must have full registration with the GMC or be eligible to become fully registered. You must also hold a diving qualification. On-call work can be done from home but the individual must be able to attend DDRC within 1 hour.
We are keen to have individuals who have other roles within the NHS or have portfolio careers. We recognise the benefits of those with knowledge in other fields and how this complements our work here.
