Main duties of the job

Following a maximum of 9-12 months in EM the successful candidate will be expected to be a departmental leader (including at night) and would have the opportunity to go on their first secondment to the specialties.
Doctors leading the department and wishing to stay on either in full time positions or working towards CESR will be supported to do so. Candidates who are not leading the department within 18 months of joining will be supported in finding more suitable roles within the NHS.

The successful candidate will spend time developing their portfolio to enable progression in their emergency medicine CESR application and success. Please come to the interview prepared to tell us about the area that sparks passion for you and that you would want to develop your skills in during your time spent working for our Trust.
The successful candidate will be allocated a Consultant Supervisor knowledgeable in the CESR requirements and process.

The candidate will be expected to undertake a structured appraisal at the end of the year which will support future revalidation processes and an in-house ARCP equivalent review of CESR target progression. There is support for the RCEM FRCEM exams and OSCE stations and we have an excellent in house skills course, USS level 1 training and support and Trust based ATLS, EPALS and ALS courses. The ED Consultant body will also support networking for the candidate with key representatives within the Trust in that area of interest. This will support the fostering of links between the ED team and external specialties that is key to running supportive and efficient Urgent and Emergency Care pathways.
We prioritise teaching for all members of our multidisciplinary team and you will be expected to participate in teaching to share your skills and knowledge and will be supported to do so using a range of mediums eg e-learning modules on our departmental online teaching platform, through MDT simulation sessions, MS Teams sessions and face to face teaching (as social distancing allows).
