Clinical adviser (sessional)

Clinical Adviser (Sessional) £44.48 per hour

We are seeking to appoint a number of advisers, on a sessional basis, to provide the Ombudsman with clinical advice.  


Successful candidates will be senior clinicians experienced in their field and who can comment authoritatively on the delivery of care and treatment.  Previous experience in conducting reviews and providing written reports suitable for the lay reader is desirable.  It is important that candidates have the ability to assess extensive and complex information and, where merited, provide criticism and suggestions on how a service may improve.


Applicants must be fully registered with a relevant professional body and must have worked in NHS clinical practice in his/her particular specialism or area of work within the last 12 months.


Applications from all specialities are welcomed.  However, the Ombudsman is particularly looking for applications from the following areas:


  • Nursing
  • Cardiology
  • Orthopedic
  • Anaesthetists
  • Surgeons


Further details on how to apply are contained within the attached ‘Notes for Candidates’ document, and appointment will depend upon relevant skills and experience.


The Ombudsman is committed to equal opportunities.
