Would you love the chance to work in a professionally satisfying role, whilst enjoying a fantastic work-life balance?

Within this role, you will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of ED attendees and provide clincial support and escalation for the junior doctors, nurses and AHP’s in the department. You will join the Senior Doctor rota which will include weekends and nights.
We will support you to take on the role of managing the ED overnight. The qualities of leadership required as head of an accident team will be also be learned through the process of supervision and involvement in education.
Some of your clinical duties will include taking part in the initial management and medical care of all types of patients attending the ED, advising and supporting non-medical staff in the ED and working with the senior nurses to ensure the effective operation of the Department.
This is a brilliant opportunity for you work alongside a knowledgeable and supportive team comprising of three Consultants in Emergency Medicine, 10 Specialty Doctors, as well as a large team of nursing staff, and advanced clinical practitioners.
About our Department
You will be able to gain experience of major trauma associated with the Island’s widespread motorsport culture; this is particularly concentrated during the TT fortnight in June followed by the Manx Grand Prix in August, where several major traumas can be admitted each day requiring extensive stabilisation and intervention.
Outside the motorsport season, due to the wide variety of presentations to the department given our unique location, you will have ample time to develop core techniques within Emergency Medicine within a supportive educational environment. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to undertake audit and other clinical governance projects.
Some facts about the ED:
- The Emergency Department currently sees over 31,500 patients per annum
- Noble's Hospital is part of the Cheshire and Mersey Major Trauma Collaborative as an accredited Trauma Unit
- There is a strong link between the Emergency Department and Ambulance Service as it sits within the hospital care group
What can this role offer me?
By joining us you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.
The Emergency Department has a strong emphasis on training with support for both in house and external training courses. We have a number of educational and clinical supervisors and provide weekly ED teaching sessions which are popular and consistently receive excellent feedback from Health Education North West.
Our on-site training centre called Keyll Darree comprises a lecture theatre, well stocked medical library, training facilities and a state of the art simulation lab which is operated by trained simulation practitioners. Frequent simulation based surgical training programmes are run from the lab as well as drills to practice emergency procedures.
At Noble’s Hospital, you’ll have access to free on-site car parking.
