The posts are designed to include a proportionate amount of time for supporting professional activity, which might be relevant audit activity, guideline development, and/or an opportunity to acquire new experience and skills by attending out-patient clinics in the Trust for example.  As part of this recruitment we are also seeking to recruit to the post of Clinical Lead for Emergency Primary Care. This individual will, again working on a sessional basis, oversee the development of our urgent primary care services reporting directly to the divisional clinical director
