The Great Western Hospital is pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to Consultant Geriatricians to join the existing team within the Department of Older Person’s Services (DOPS) for a one year period to cover maternity leave.

Are you looking to start your career as a Consultant in one of the most supportive and caring Elderly Care Trusts in the country, or are you an existing Consultant looking for a new and exciting change where you can really make a difference?  Either way, we are a supportive and close knit team who are focussed on giving the very best care to our elderly patients at all times and we would love to have you on board.

We are looking for enthusiastic and forward thinking Consultant Geriatricians to help shape the service that we deliver in the care of our elderly patients who we care so passionately about.  We are continually looking to develop new ways of working so we are excited to see what additional ways of working and practices the potential candidates can bring to the team to further enhance the service we provide.  We encourage professional development, so candidates with special interests within Geriatrics will be accommodated and supported as much as possible.

The successful candidate will be working closely with the existing team of Consultants to improve the care we provide in our acute setting.  We believe that this is essential for us to provide a first class service where patients and their relatives come first.

There are currently 19 consultants participating in the 1 in 7 General Medical on call rota. We believe that a good work/life balance is important for all our employees so we would like the appointed candidates to participate in this rota to enable us to reduce the frequency of this commitment for all.
