Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine
- Full Time
We are looking to appoint a Consultant Anaesthetist to maintain the provision of Consultant-led anaesthesia services for elective and emergency patients. We are a dynamic friendly department with a high commitment to teaching and training. We receive excellent feedback from our trainees and have high exam pass rates.
The direct clinical care work on the 10 PA contract is split between critical care and anaesthesia and has 1.5 PAs of time reserved for SPA. Each week on average there are 3.5 PAs for critical care and 5 PAs for anaesthesia.
The 3.5 critical care PAs include daytime sessions on critical care as well as on call for the ICU which currently averages out to 1.52 PAs per week but will reduce proportionately with an increase in personnel and a corresponding reduction of the on call frequency.
The anaesthesia sessions/lists are 1.25 PAs each and run from 8am to 1pm or 1pm to 6pm including pre and post-operative visiting.
The on-call commitment is currently on a 2:20 basis (1.2 PA per week). This alternates between the Blackburn and Burnley sites. The Blackburn site is the acute site with ED and all general emergencies.
The job plans are indicative and subject to change as the service demands. There may also be changes associated with “NHS Services, Seven Days a Week”.
The department takes trainees from the North West School of Anaesthesia. Teaching and training are high priorities within the department and all Consultants are expected to contribute to this.
