It is one of the largest in the UK seeing more than 139,000 new attenders per annum. It serves the whole of the Hull and East Riding catchment area as well as parts of the North Sea.

The department has excellent facilities including:-

  • PEM training centre

  • A ten bay adult resus with individual glass fronted bays, identically equipped and same handed with new equipment throughout.
  • A large open plan majors area with 24 glass fronted bays and five monitored rooms.

The ED in Hull has seen a great deal of investment and support in the last few years. Our nurse staffing is in line with NICE recommendations, there is a vibrant quality improvement programme and departmental morale is really good. It would be a great time to join us. The successful applicant will have opportunities for audit/QIP, have a dedicated supervisor and have access to teaching opportunities.
