Doctors and consultants
There has never been a better time to consider a career with us at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. We’re looking for the very best consultants and doctors to join our exceptional teams and help us create an NHS that's fit for the future.
As well as caring for patients, our consultants develop and lead quality improvement programmes to improve services and experience for both patients and staff.
Non-training grade doctors are an integral part of the NHS workforce, from junior clinical fellows, who may be taking a year out of training to focus on a desired specialty, to specialty doctors and specialists working alongside their consultant colleagues.
Below is some further information on the types of non-training grade doctors employed within the Trust, as well as contract information for our current employees.
SAS doctors include specialty doctors and specialists
Clinical Fellows include JCF doctors (junior clinical fellows) and SCF doctors (senior clinical fellows).
SCF Doctors appointed into this grade are usually working at the same level as ST3+ trainee doctors but will be paid on the Trust grade doctor contract, which closely mirrors the ‘New Deal’ 2002 trainee contract with some local amendments.
JCF doctors are junior clinical fellows. Doctors appointed into this grade are usually working at the same level as FY2 – ST2 trainee doctors, but will be paid on the Trust grade doctor contract, which closely mirrors the ‘New Deal’ 2002 trainee contract with some local amendments.
CESR The Certificate of Eligibility of Specialist Registration (CESR) is a means by which doctors who have not completed an approved deanery training programme can be entered on the Specialist Register. At LGT, we are interested in recruiting to CESR programmes in different specialities.
Physician Associates Physician Associates (PAs) are healthcare professionals with a generalist medical education who work alongside doctors and surgeons providing medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. PAs work under the supervision of a doctor but can work autonomously with appropriate support.
