Applications are invited for two Junior Clinical Fellows in General Medicine and Stroke. These are fixed term appointments based at Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

One post is full time and the other post is for 2 days per week. The posts are to start as soon as possible for 1 year in the Stroke department with a 1 in 5 weekend GIM on call on either a Saturday or Sunday.
