Do you have what it takes to be part of our Acute Medicine team? This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a newly developed and redesigned acute assessment unit as we complete the major expansion of our urgent care facilities.

The newly designed Acute Assessment & Frailty Unit is the last element of our “Ground Floor” urgent and emergency care model, a journey that began 5 years ago with the opening of our state-of-the-art Emergency Department and has been recently complimented by a newly installed CT and MRI suite.

The unit brings together acute medicine, with a high observation facility, a frailty unit, acute surgery and ambulatory care into one expansive facility. The facility will be further supported by a short stay acute ward, as well as a new 18 cubicle acute receiving unit, which will provide appropriate isolation facilities for the acutely unwell.

The Trust was rated as good for Medical Care (including Elderly) by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2020.

Your appointment will enable the Trust to continue the planned expansion and is part of our clinical strategy to reach 22WTE Acute Consultants by the end of 2021.

You will be based in the heart of the action within our vibrant Acute Assessment Unit, using your skills, knowledge and experience to provide rapid assessment of patients, supported by a full Multidisciplinary Team.  

The hospital boasts an excellent Post Graduate Education Department as well as the Hull Institute of Learning and Simulation (HILS) offering practical skills rooms, ward areas, operating theatre and simulation suite all of which can be customised to the needs of the user. The successful candidates will be supported to develop their leadership skills and research interest and the Library and Knowledge Service provides access to over 10,000 texts both online and physically.  To guide you the Trust runs a new consultant programme with the aim of supporting new colleagues to challenge their leadership skills while guiding you through the myriad of new experiences and challenges. 

Your interest in pursuing and developing a specialist interest outside of acute medicine will be fully supported. The Trust is fully committed to supporting the requirements for continuing education and professional development as laid down by the Royal Colleges. A personal development review will be undertaken to discuss any needs and on-going training once you join the team.
