MYDoc Plastic Surgery and Burns

Trust Grade Registrar (6-month post Feb 2022 to August 2022)

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is pleased to announce a 6 month vacancy in the department of Plastic Surgery and Burns.

This post will be suitable for a trainee who is wanting to gain experience at registrar level prior to applying for a national training number.

It is essential that the post holder has passed both parts of the MRCS examinations and has a minimum of 12 months plastics surgery experience including 6 months burns experience at core training level.

The post holder will be expected to be competent in acute management of hand trauma, burns and common plastic surgery emergencies (paediatric and adult).

Although this post is not a recognised UK training post, the post-holder will have a named supervisor, and be supported in undertaking scheduled educational opportunities within the Trust and specialties.

An Introduction to the Division/Specialty

During the course of the appointment the registrar will have the opportunity undertake both clinical and academic work. The post holder will be encouraged and supported to undertake a short clinical audit project within the constraints of the short timeframe of their contract.

The Plastic surgery department, regional burns centre for adults and paediatric burns unit are situated on the Pinderfields site with outpatient and day-case services at Pontefract General Hospital and Dewsbury District Hospital. We also have dedicated hand therapy services at all three hospital sites and plastic surgery dressing's clinic at Pinderfields Hospital. Our adult burns, general plastic surgery ward, hand therapy unit and plastic surgery dressing's clinic are all co-located on the same floor.

We are passionate about teaching and training. We have a weekly departmental teaching programme consisting of in-house presentations. We have Burns MDT meetings every Monday morning and a teaching ward round and burns MDT every Friday morning.

Our departmental research and CEPOD meetings take place once a month. We also have representation on the breast and skin cancer MDTs.

A number of our consultants are conveners and faculty members for local and national courses. We regularly undertake clinical and viva practice for FRCS (Plast) candidates, ST3 interview practice and run simulation workshops for our trainees, such as suturing, skin grafting, tendon repair and fracture fixation. We encourage our trainees to actively participate, and be involved in the organisation of, multiple courses aimed at sixth formers all the way up to senior trainees. This provides an excellent opportunity for trainees to develop the teaching and training components of their portfolios.

We are proud to have research collaborations with the University of Bradford and Huddersfield University. Our previous research fellows and Trust grade registrars have secured a National Training Number at national selections.

Our departmental ethos is to promote high quality, patient centred care in burns and plastic surgery through education, training and research in an environment that is supportive, inclusive, and forward thinking.

These posts will be part of our 1:8 STR / Registrar level trainee on call rota - which is compliant with working time regulations and the 2016 junior doctor's contract, averaging 48 hours per week.
