Applications are invited for a Senior Clinical Fellow in Accident & Emergency, to join an innovative team at one of the largest Emergency Departments in the East of England.

Our rapidly expanding department has over 140,000 attendances per year and our ED footprint includes a purpose-built Children's and Older People's Emergency Department, GP front door streaming pods and an all-weather helipad. The ED is set within the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, which provides a full range of acute clinical services, with over 1,000 beds.
