Job Details


The post is available from 1stAugust 2023

University Hospital Wales (UHW), Cardiff are excited to offer a 1 or 2 year, full time Fellowship in Emergency & Community Prehospital Emergency Medicine. This programme is for energetic, enthusiastic doctors of ST3/ST4+ or equivalent level in Emergency Medicine who wish to develop their prehospital emergency medicine (PHEM) skills in the first Welsh Major Trauma Centre (MTC) and its partner the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST).

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate would work at the MTC (University Hospital Wales, Cardiff) and on the Welsh Enhanced Care Response unit (WECRU), spending 70% of their time in hospital and 30% of their time prehospital. They will be joining a well-staffed and supportive hospital team containing 25 Consultants and 13 Registrars in Emergency Medicine. The Welsh ECRU is a new development in partnership with UHW and WAST and hopes to build on & streamline clinical pathways for patients that may attend the ED. This is a unique opportunity to help build a system dedicated to improving emergency care in the vibrant city of Cardiff.

The post is available for 6-12 months from 1st February 2023

There are very few opportunities nationally for trainees to develop and gain first-hand experience in PHEM. This is a superb opportunity for trainees who wish to build on their PHEM portfolio for potential National PHEM selection. UHW has appointed a Consultant in PHEM who will be overlooking your training and encouraging participation in PHEM governance and quality improvement projects.

Eligible candidates will be GMC registered doctors with at least 18 months experience of working in Emergency Medicine in the UK as a middle grade (i.e. able to lead a department at night with remote supervision) and at least 3 months experience in Paediatric Emergency Medicine, 6 months experience in Anaesthesia, 6 months experience in Intensive Care Medicine and 6 months experience in Acute General Medicine.
