Currently we have an excellent permanent job opportunity for a Stroke Medicine Consultant to work for an NHS organisation in Yorkshire and Humber.

Salary: £93,666 – £126,281

Position: Stroke Medicine Consultant

Hours: 10 + 1.5 PAs, There is a 1:7 on call for Stroke

Location: Yorkshire and Humber

For this role, you will be responsible for:

Looking after patients who will often be elderly, although around a quarter of stroke patients are aged under 65.

Stroke medicine has only been recognised as a specialist branch of medicine since 2007 so you may have another specialism and split your time between the two or work full-time on stroke medicine.

You’ll use a range of clinical skills and knowledge including on cardiovascular disease, general and geriatric medicine, rehabilitation and palliative care. You’ll treat patients with strokes and those suffering from a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or ‘mini-stroke’, where symptoms last less than 24 hours. You’ll also be skilled in identifying patients who have similar symptoms to a stroke but may have other underlying diseases such as epilepsy.

Your working day will be varied due to the acute nature of the work and the need to be on-call on a rota. The quicker someone with a stroke is treated, the better their chances of survival and a full recovery. You could be responding to emergency, life-threatening situations either in A&E, in emergency outpatient clinics where testing, diagnosis and medication management are provided in one visit, or in hyper-acute stroke units providing rapid assessment.
