An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated senior trainee in surgery or medicine (ST4 or above) with an interest in leadership, management and quality improvement to join Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust as a chief registrar.
The chief registrar role provides senior trainees with 50% protected time to develop skills and confidence in leadership, management and quality improvement.
