We have an exciting opportunity to come and join #TeamED as a Junior Clinical Fellow.

You will have an opportunity to use your existing knowledge and skills gained as a junior doctor and develop these further in a busy, buzzing, well supervised Emergency Department. These 12 month posts are a great opportunity for those wishing to expand their front line experience before entering Specialty training.

You should have the equivalent experience of having successfully completed your FY2 year.

Main duties of the job

You will work as part of a team, seeing patients in the Emergency Department at both the Preston and Chorley sites whilst receiving real time on the job training from experienced Consultants, enabling you to develop a wide range of clinical skills and competencies.

You will also be able to attend regular Clinical Teaching sessions and you will be able to meet regularly with your Clinical Supervisor. There is the opportunity to participate in Clinical Audit or quality improvement projects and help build your portfolio. You will gain valuable experience working with a number of multidisciplinary teams in Emergency Medicine and other acute specialties.

About us

At Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, our team is our work family. Working for the Trust, you will be working as part of a collaborative, friendly and caring team of incredible people who are committed to providing excellent care with compassion.

Our purpose is to be recognised as the centre for acute and specialised hospital services in Lancashire and South Cumbria.

As you may know the Government passed legislation requiring vaccination as a condition of deployment which was due to come in from 1 April 2022. However on the 31 Jan 2022 the Secretary of State has announced that this is being reconsidered. However, whilst we wait for further guidance, as a Trust we have made the decision to continue to gather vaccine status during our pre-employment stages should you be made an offer, no offer would be conditional upon you having a vaccine but we need to make you aware that if the decision is taken by the government to implement mandated covid vaccines in the future then your employment may be at risk if you do not have these.

Vaccination against is the best way to protect yourself, your family, your colleagues and, of course, your patients from the virus. NHS England and NHS Improvement have always been clear that staff have a professional duty to be vaccinated
