Locum Consultant in Emergency Medicine x2
Glasgow Royal Infirmary
We seek to recruit two consultants to join our team for Maternity locum cover. The Emergency Department at Glasgow Royal Infirmary is a dynamic, fast-paced clinical environment, providing care for a diverse city population ranging from those who live and work in the culturally vibrant centre to those living with the socio-economic challenges of the largest city in Scotland. We deliver consultant led care seven days a week until midnight and beyond (with a mix of overnight resident consultant cover and enhanced middle grade cover) within an environment of continuous learning for the entire team. We have a 14 strong middle grade tier, a highly experienced cadre of nursing colleagues (many of whom are dual qualified as ENPs), and 23 doctors on our junior rota. The clinical team manage approximately 98,000 new presentations per year.
The Emergency Department has excellent working links with Critical Care and Acute Medicine, in-patient surgical teams (General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Plastics), and Obstetrics and Gynaecology. We have well established direct admission rights to all major specialties. We also provide in-patient care of head injury patients in a ward shared with acute medicine with twice daily ward rounds.
The department consistently delivers a high standard of clinical learning, recognised by National and Local Teaching Excellence Awards over the previous five years. We are evolving our education programme to involve the entire clinical team, have introduced simulation training and employ clinical teaching fellows to support the programme.
We have a highly motivated Trauma Team established within the department integrating Emergency Medicine Teams with both Surgical and Intensive Care Unit Specialties.
We are active participants in local and multicentre research trials with dedicated research staff and strong links to Glasgow University and the Clinical Research Facility.
