[Contact Person’s Name]
Dear [Mr/Ms/Mx] [Contact Person’s Name],
My name is [Your Name], and I am a GMC licensed paediatrician with an MB ChB from the University of Warwick. My former colleague Dr Emily Merryrose is a consultant in your unit and recommended that I apply. With ten years of ward experience in paediatric neurology and emergency medicine, I am an ideal candidate for the role of Consultant Paediatrician at [Hospital Name].
My expertise will be uniquely beneficial to your hospital’s current needs. Two-thirds of attendances to your Accident and Emergency Department are acute admissions, but the department is only serviced by two paediatric doctors. Tending to children with acute neurological emergencies was one of my primary duties during my five years at St Mary’s General Hospital. I was one of three paediatric specialists responsible for the roughly 8,000 attendances the paediatric emergency department received annually.
Additionally, I am research trained in diagnosing and treating autism spectrum disorders. I supervised a behavioural paediatrics clinic within St Mary’s, and we have received excellent feedback for our quality of care and strong links to the local community.
After this immensely rewarding experience, I have been seeking a position with similar opportunities to provide individual and group therapeutic care. I am delighted to see that the advertised role also has ties to your hospital’s newly opened Behavioural Clinic.
I hope you will agree that I am an excellent fit for your hospital’s growing Paediatrics Department. Please contact me at 07123-456789 or via email at email@example.com to arrange a convenient meeting time.
