University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are recruiting an ST1-2 / SHO level trust grade doctor to work at the Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy in Chalfont St Peters, Buckinghamshire.

The Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy is a national quaternary referral centre for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, and is a satellite site of the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Working at the Chalfont Centre is a unique opportunity for junior doctors interested in epilepsy and neurology to develop expert knowledge about complex epilepsy, its diagnosis and management, in a friendly and professional environment.

We are looking for a post-foundation (or equivalent) level doctor who has an interest in Neurology and epilepsy. Previous knowledge is not essential. Good basic medical skills are important and previous experience of managing acute and chronic medical issues is important.

Admissions at Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy provide a holistic MDT approach to the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy. The MDT includes experienced epileptologists, neurophysiologists, epilepsy nurses, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, occupational therapists, radiographers and pharmacists.

The Chalfont Centre houses state of the art diagnostics including prolonged ambulatory and video EEG monitoring, structural and functional MR imaging, the genomics research centre and therapeutic drug monitoring unit.

The centre is comprised of:

  • Sir William’s Gowers Assessment and Treatment Unit - a 26 bed ward      
  • Therapeutic Drug Monitoring unit.
  • The Epilepsy Research Centre
  • Epilepsy Neuroimaging Centre for clinical and experimental imaging
  • Houses for residents

The junior doctors are based on Gowers Ward and work four long days per week (no on calls or night shifts). Depending on the working day the start times vary between 08:00 and 09:00, and the end times vary between 19:00 and 18:00. The other day is for private study, audit, research or teaching commitments at The National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery or UCLH.
