Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust



The Role

We are recruiting Consultants looking to join our team to help redefine the delivery of Emergency Medicine within Shropshire at The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. This is an exciting opportunity for you to make a lifelong impact to the care of our patients for generations to come.

We are entering an exciting period here at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. We have been guaranteed more than £312 million pounds to develop our hospitals which will mean an improved environment for our patients, more sustainable staffing and state of the art facilities. This investment will make SaTH a better place to work, but more importantly a better place to receive care. We are looking for doctors with commitment, drive, and desire to make an impact transforming the care within our Emergency Departments.

We already have a strong team of both substantive and long-term locums working for us, as well as SAS doctors, specialist nurses, enhanced clinicians and dedicated support staff. One of the ways we are improving employee experience, staff involvement, and engagement is by recruiting according to our Trust values, behaviours and attitudes - do you have what it takes to create the Safest Kindest Care in the NHS? 

The Trust
We are ideally located between the north and the south, making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery. 

Both hospitals are based in Shropshire, a short 20 minutes’ drive apart. Shrewsbury has recently been named in the ‘Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide’ as one of the top places to live in the country. It is a wonderful bustling place, with affordable housing, fantastic schools and great out-of-work activities for everyone. 

It is also a particularly good time to join the Trust as we are currently working in collaboration with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK trusts to receive this support from one of the safest hospitals in the world. We are now 4 years into a 5-year journey so this is the perfect opportunity to benefit from this valuable experience whilst you still can.
