Working for your organisation
The East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Teaching NHS Trust is a large multi-site Trust whose ambitious programme to reconfigure services in line with leading national and international care delivery models.
It was also recently announced that a new medical school, the first in the county, will be opening in two years. The school, which will offer 100 medical school places per year, is a game-changing opportunity and one which the two universities and Kent and Medway trusts have been working towards and hoping for over several years.
Detailed job description and main responsibilities
The posts will be a combination of acute inpatient care for patients coming from a distinct locality and ED liaison and Frailty service sessions. However, as a large and dynamic department, there is opportunity to negotiate job plans to fit specialist interests. There is also flexibility to work between Medicine for Older People and Acute Medicine if this balance of work is desired - we are developing a new acute medical model to be implemented across the Trust
