“Right now we are building our future”

The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital Opening soon and we need superheroes to join our team!

We are seeking to recruit a number of enthusiastic, innovative, driven Acute Physicians to join our team of 8 Acute Physicians. We are passionate about our ethos and philosophy and are driven to provide the best care for our acutely unwell patients. We are moving into our new Acute Hospital “The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital” in 2022 and Acute Medicine holds the largest footprint- including 14 Level 1 beds, 54 AMU beds, a 32 bedded Short Stay unit and a large independent Medical Ambulatory Area. The new state of the art acute hospital in Grove Lane, Smethwick will bring together all acute services onto one site.

Please note, there is also an opportunity to apply for the Clinical Director post within Emergency Care. Please note there will be a separate interview for this role which can take place on the same day of the AAC but not part of the AAC.

Acute Medicine within the Trust has developed from scratch over a matter of years and now is the most fundamental critical specialty for the workings of the trust. Acute physicians are highly influential and involved heavily in management and strategy.

On average 60-65% of acute medical admissions are discharged within 24 hours, This has been credited to innovative services such as virtual clinics, daily walk in review, the ambulatory unit as well as our close relations with physiotherapy, OT, frail elderly and social teams. Despite our efficiencies we have many opportunities for quality and service improvement and seek candidate who can innovate, lead and contribute to this work.
