West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust is seeking 3 Consultant Geriatricians to support the Trust in its efforts to transform medicine for the elderly services to deliver a new model of integrated care for older people living in West Hertfordshire and its surrounding areas. These posts will be based in primarily at Watford Hospital.

The successful applicants will be joining an established Medicine for the elderly Consultant team within a busy district general hospital environment.

These are exciting times for The Trust with the future of the department based on exploration of a new service delivery model which offers pro-active and systematic care to patients with complex needs over the age of 55.

It is planned that the delivery model will include a one-stop shop for delivering multi-specialty services like onsite diagnostics (with physicians working alongside a range of specialists), and customised electronic health records for chronically ill patients; with Hemel Hempstead Hospital being the location of the planned one stop shop clinic.

This model of care aims to promote a culture of collaboration, transparency and accountability among hospital and primary care physicians.

Visits are encouraged and can be arranged with the secretaries of Dr Andy Barlow, Divisional Director, Division of Medicine on 01923 436220, Dr Tolu Adesina, tadesina@nhs.net, Clinical Director for Medicine for the Elderly and Stroke on 01923 217741 or Dr Haji-Coll Clinical Lead Care of Elderly Medicine.
