POST INFORMATION
The Post    This locum post is available immediately for a period of 3 months pending the
                appointment of substantive posts. This post will be based in community. Experience
                in child protection or other specialist interest would be welcomed.

                New posts have recently been advertised and have been created on the background
                of retirements and service re-design to create an integrated acute and community
                children’s servicee. We see this as an opportunity to consolidate existing services
                and to continue to develop as a centre of excellence in secondary paediatric care.
                We are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our team who would relish the
                opportunities and challenges of delivering high quality care across Lanarkshire in
                both acute and community settings.
                These appointments will continue our progress towards a Combined Child Health
                Service, comprising Hospital Paediatrics, Community Paediatrics and CAMHS with
                shared management, patient pathways and clinical guidelines. Within this model,
                teams including Community Children’s nurses/Specialist Nurses and Psychologists
                will be developed to supplement specialist areas of practice.

                The successful candidate will work in community paediatrics. There is no on call in
                this post however there is an opportunity for on call within the child protection rota if
                desired and suitably experienced.

                This is a full time post with 10 PAs available. The successful applicant will join the
                existing team of 11 Consultants, 10 General (8.8 WTE) and 1 Community.

DECLARATIONS/CONVICTIONS STATEMENT

The following should be used when completing DECLARATIONS/ CONVICTIONS within the
application pack.

Registration with the General Medical Council or General Dental Council imposes on doctors
and dentists the duty to provide a good standard of medical care and to behave
appropriately, towards patients. NHS Employees also have a duty to ensure that patients
receive a good standard of medical care and ensure as far as possible the safety of patients.
We therefore need to establish if you have been found guilty of a criminal offence, been
bound over or cautioned or are currently the subject of proceedings which might lead to a
conviction, an order binding you over or a caution, in the UK or any other country.

Applications for posts in the NHS are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Application forms will include a declaration for applicants to complete declaring any previous
or pending prosecutions or convictions, including those considered “spent” under the Act.
Forms will also include a declaration of any cautions or bind overs.

We also need to establish if you have been the subject of any fitness to practice proceedings
in the past, or if any fitness to practice proceedings are being contemplated, by a licensing or
regulatory body in the UK or another country and this is also reflected in the declaration.

This information will be treated in confidence and will not debar you from appointment unless
the selection panel considers that it renders you unsuitable for appointment. In reaching
such a decision we will consider the nature of the conviction/action, how long ago it took
place and any other factors which may be relevant

Failure to disclose a criminal offence, having been bound over or cautioned or that you are
currently the subject of criminal proceedings, which might lead to a conviction, an order
binding you over a caution, or fitness to practice proceedings undertaken or being
undertaken by an appropriate licensing or regulatory body, may disqualify you from
appointment, or result in summary dismissal/disciplinary action and referral to the General
Medical Council (General Dental Council) for consideration if such a discrepancy came to
light.
If you would like to discuss what effect any previous convictions, police investigations or
fitness to practice proceedings taken or being taken either in the UK or by an overseas
licensing or regulatory body might have on your application, you may telephone: Marlene
Fraser (01698) 377752 in confidence, for advice.

IMMIGRATION
Overseas        For the purpose of immigration status, overseas doctors and dentists are
Doctors and     those who, regardless of where they obtain their primary medical/dental
Dentists        qualification, are not nationals of the European Economic Area (EEA). A
                list of EEA countries is attached.
Changes to      On 7th March 2006 the Department of Health announced changes to the
Immigration     immigration rules for postgraduate doctors and dentists. The changes
                came into effect on 3rd April 2006 and mean that all doctors and dentists
                who wish to work in the UK from outside the EEA will need to meet the
                requirements of an employment category such as the work permit
                provisions. New applications for permit-free training visas will no longer
                be granted for doctors undertaking training posts
Impact of       Non-EEA doctors and dentists will still be able to come and train in the
Change          UK and are still eligible to apply, in open competition for training posts
                provided all the other eligibility criteria is met. However, training posts
                will now be considered employment for immigration purposes. Work
                permits will only be issued where there is a specific post for the
                overseas doctors that cannot be filled by someone from the EEA.
Further         The changes in immigration requirements for trainee doctors and
Information     dentists are a result of a Scottish Executive Health Department
                announcement and immigration issues are the remit of the Home Office.
