Applications are invited for the post of Consultant Anaesthetist with general interest, based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge for the above post.

The successful candidates will join an expanding, innovative and dynamic department of 85 substantive Consultants, 40 trainees and 20 Senior Clinical Fellows/Clinical Fellows, providing anaesthetic services in this thriving, modern teaching hospital. Addenbrooke’s not only provides a broad range of medical services for people living in the Cambridge area but is also a regional/supra-regional referral centre for a number of specialties including cancer surgery, neurosurgery, transplantation, plastic surgery, vascular surgery and paediatrics. As a world-renowned teaching hospital, there is unparalleled capacity for teaching and research including involvement in the high fidelity simulation centre, and research projects within the department as well as the wider biomedical campus.

The successful candidate will join a growing team of general anaesthetists who support a large range of services within this large tertiary hospital. The general anaesthetic group are a diverse range of professionals with subspecialty interests ranging from major general, oncology, trauma & orthopaedics, vascular, complex airway, through to chronic pain. The on-call role supports general emergency theatres, trauma and the over-night intensive recovery area, as well as playing an essential supporting role within the perioperative services and across the trust. We are involved in national projects such as PQIP, NELA, and have a large presence in simulation, pre-operative assessment and the major trauma service. The successful candidate will have more involvement in trauma and perioperative medicine as these areas are rapidly evolving.
