Worcestershire – Where Our People Matter

Consultant Acute Medicine - Frality

Reference – C9365-23-1537-1

Times are changing in Worcestershire. With our ageing population, we recognise the importance of developing front-door frailty services that our responsive to the needs of our patients. We are looking for passionate and committed clinicians to work within our Acute Medicine team in improving how we look after older people within the first 72 hours of their journey. Our goal is to support people in returning to their own homes as safely and as quickly as possible.  

We appreciate the value, expertise and importance that clinicians with an interest in Frailty bring to our service. You will be joining an established team of fellow Consultant colleagues, Trainees, Advanced Clinical Practitioners and Nursing staff in supporting our Acute Take, AMU, and MSSU. You will also work within our new Frailty SDEC area, alongside the Geriatrician Emergency Medicine Service (GEMS), and be supported in developing integrated pathways with community teams. We hope to use digital technology and innovation to enhance our links with the county’s urgent crisis response teams.

We are looking for Consultants with an interest in Frailty and Care of the Older Person who have an interest in developing our service, our team, and our profile on a local, regional and national scale. We want to be the employer of choice and have an absolute desire to help build the next generation of doctors and leaders. Joining us, you will have the opportunity to undertake our improvement and leadership training in partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute.

Worcestershire is a large county that allows easy access to the calm tranquillity of the Malvern Hills and the hustle-and-bustle of Birmingham City Centre. You could be a short distance away from beautiful countryside for outdoor pursuits, or a short distance away from dining at Michel-in-starred restaurants or visiting the many theatres, museums and music venues of Birmingham.

Nearby towns such as Bromsgrove have schools rated as being Outstanding by Ofsted for those who are already raising young families, or those who are just about to embark on that lifelong journey.

Worcestershire is where our people matter – our people are our patients, and the members of our teams that look after them. Please feel free to get in touch with our Clinical Director Dr David Brocklebank, Clinical Lead for Worcester Dr Sabs Moolla or Divisional Director for Ur-gent Care Dr David Raven
