Applications are invited to senior trainees ST5 and above as well as candidates who are post-CCT looking to round off their experience prior to securing a consultant post. This post could be considered OOPE/T or stand-alone 12 months or combined with 6 months general anaesthesia.

Clinical experience
Charing Cross Hospital has an international reputation for outcomes in Neurology and Neurosurgery. Post holders will have the opportunity to take part and gain extensive experience in the work we undertake:
• Craniotomies, both asleep and awake
• Base of skull surgery
• Functional surgery including deep brain stimulation
• Complex spine surgery
• Transphenoidal surgery
• Interventional radiology
• Thrombectomy service

The training is tailored to the RCOA 2010 CCT Advanced Training in Neuroanaesthesia which includes the opportunity to have a one month dedicated segment of exposure to neurocritical care in an ICM recognised unit.

On completion, this fellowship will leave the post holder confident and experienced in all aspects of the anaesthetic and peri-operative management of neuroanaesthesia and neurocritical care. 

The post holder will take part in the senior registrar on call rota alongside the other clinical fellows and ST6/7’s. Currently this rota is 1:8.

One academic day a week will be allocated to research/audit/meetings. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in various projects under the supervision of a consultant anaesthetist. Fellows are expected to initiate at least one research/quality improvement/audit project(s) and participate in departmental academic activities. Fellows are encouraged to complete their projects, attend and present their work at national or international meetings during the year.

Education and Teaching
Teaching is a core component of the fellowship and fellows will be able to instruct and supervise junior trainees in the operating room.  The department has a well-established weekly teaching programme from which the fellows can benefit from learning the topical issues and relevant literature.
