Grade: Consultant

Contract: Permanent, 10PAs

The role of Acute Medicine within University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust (UHP) is fundamentally important - facilitating excellent care of acute medical emergencies with the patient's needs at front and centre, coordinating with multiple other medical specialities to provide streamlined senior review and avoiding admissions when safe to do so by employing our well-established Acute Assessment Unit and Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) pathways.

Main duties of the job

We are looking for talented and aspiring individuals to join our energetic team of 8 Consultants in Acute Medicine currently involved in this important work.

The post will be for a maximum of 10PA. We are happy to fully support dual speciality interests, and up to 2PAs can be allocated to a second speciality interest. We also warmly welcome applicants who wish to work less than full time.
