Consultant Geriatrician, Honorary Visiting Senior Lecturer
Specialising in surgery and intervention liaisons
We are looking for a forward-thinking Consultant Geriatrician to complete an experienced and dynamic team of 7 at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. We would welcome applications from existing or newly trained Consultants who have an interest in elderly-surgical-intervention liaison pathways and who also have an eye for quality improvement and research.
The successful candidate will lead on the provision of exceptional quality of life for our senior population and there will be opportunities to demonstrate geriatric expertise across different specialties and in the community. There will be dedicated time set aside for the Honorary Visiting Senior Lecturer role with Anglia Ruskin University, and the research opportunities will be tailored to the individual. The successful candidate will be encouraged to work as part of an established multidisciplinary team and will help develop new models of care within an acute elderly pathway, particularly relevant to surgery and interventions.
Elderly care at the Princess Alexandra is designed to give the best, ethical, timely care, first time. Services include our front-door (same-day-emergency-care) service, short stay unit as well as ortho-geriatric ward services, community clinics, Parkinson’s Disease clinics and general clinics, all designed to support our patients in their later years by meeting their changing needs seamlessly and avoiding crisis moments.
This is an opportunity to join an organisation in which clinicians are at the forefront of management and service development. Princess Alexandra is a great place to work. It has an expanding population with growing healthcare needs which will be matched by service expansion and new ways of working.
The Trust is heavily engaged with local providers and the CCGs to innovate with new models of integrated care. There are opportunities to live in a place that suits you, be it London, Cambridge, or the many picturesque villages of Essex and Hertfordshire with their excellent schools. Rail connections are excellent and both Stansted and Luton airports are only a short distance away.
