Our department is strongly invested in tailoring training to individual needs, regardless of whether the individual is a specialist or who wishes to top up their training in their senior years.
An Introduction to the Division/Specialty
An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and motivated doctor, interested in plastic and hand surgery, to join our Plastic Surgery Department from October 2022 for 6 months extendible to 12 months.
Depending on the level of experience, we will endeavour to tailor the post to allow all necessary competences, to be achieved. The post holder will be encouraged to develop clinical audit and research projects ultimately aiming for national and international presentations and publications.
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 dressings clinic at Pinderfields Hospital. Our adult burns, general plastic surgery ward, hand therapy unit and plastic surgery dressings 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 and invited external speakers.

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.
