An exciting opportunity has arisen for 3 enthusiastic LAS Doctors (ST3+ level) in General Surgery, based at the Royal Stoke University Hospital, within one of the fastest growing teaching Trusts in the UK. The Trust is a progressive and ambitious organisation providing a full range of general acute hospital services for approximately half a million people living in and around North and Mid Staffordshire. The Trust also provides specialised services for three million people in a wider area, including neighbouring counties and North Wales. In 2012, UHNM became a Major Trauma Centre, serving a population of 2.5 million in the North West Midlands (Staffordshire, Shropshire and South Cheshire) and North Wales. In the same year, the hospital completed the £370-million complex that brought all acute specialties (including neurosurgery, spinal surgery and cardiothoracic surgery) on to a single site. Facilities in UHNM include a new emergency department, 35 operating theatres, 2 interventional radiology suites with a third planned, 62 adult critical care beds and an 8-bedded paediatric intensive care unit.
