You would join our established Acute Medicine team which covers all medical admissions through the 51 bedded Acute Medical Unit (AMU) and the designated same day emergency care (SDEC) area.
You would primarily be responsible for patients attending for assessment in the SDEC or AMU on a rotating basis, supporting the CMT/GPVTS trainee and PA/ANP in patient management and follow up with the support of the Acute Medicine Consultants (who rotate between areas).
There will also be opportunities to lead changes in practice and developments on the SDEC and to be involved on the AMU. SDEC is open 08.00 to 20.00, but the post holders will be on a rota, which ultimately would consist of working a rota covering the unit from 08:00 -22:00 weekdays and 09:00 -21:00 at weekends. There are zero-hour days factored into the rota and flexibility regarding the timing of SPA and administration time. Our aim is to make these posts enjoyable and enable them to flex around other commitments, while meeting the growing needs of our patients.
Any member of the junior medical staff may be required to serve as member of a medical committee if so elected by his/her colleagues.
Involvement in audits, Q.I.'s and departmental development is also encouraged, with full help from the department.
