About Us

This is a new post and is suitable for an Oral
and Maxillofacial Surgeon with a subspecialty
interest Facial Deformity & Orthognathic Surgery
and with a passion to develop the Surgical
Dermatology aspect of the service.
The post has arisen from the growth of the
department and the appointee will join a
department of three other full-time consultants
and a large middle grade and junior team.
The Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS
Foundation Trust (Royal Devon) now includes the
Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital and the North
Devon District Hospital.
The Combined Maxillofacial Unit for North and
East Devon is covered by the existing three
Consultants who are primarily based in Exeter,
serving a population of 500,000.
The weekday non-residential on call cover
for the RD&E only will be on a 1:4 basis. The
weekend consultant on call cover is shared
between the Royal Devon and Musgrove Park
Hospital in Taunton, on a 1:7 basis. There is
a full 1st and middle grade 2nd on call with
prospective cover based in Exeter. Out of hours
referrals are received from Barnstaple, Taunton
and Yeovil dependent upon the base of the on
call consultant for that weekend.

The Trust reserves the right to close this advert early.
