We wish to appoint a consultant colleague to join the Critical Care team at Glasgow Royal Infirmary to provide Critical Care services. The successful candidate will join a cohesive and friendly team of Intensive Care Consultants. The group is committed to improving all aspects of the care we provide and as such we have developed a strong focus on quality improvement in recent years.

The intensive care unit is a mixed 20 bedded area (16 level 3 beds and 4 level 2 beds) arranged as 2 co–located units of 10 beds.

There are currently 14 substantive consultants who provide care to Intensive Care, with the majority providing some service in an additional specialty. Consultant work day time work in Intensive Care is generally arranged in blocks of 4 days (Monday – Thursday) and 3 days (Friday – Sunday).

On call will be provided on 1:15 first on (overnight) and 1:15 second on (additional evening cover Monday – Friday, additional daytime cover Saturday and Sunday).

Minimum unit staffing is one consultant and one trainee for each 10 bedded unit. There may also be senior trainees in Intensive Care Medicine or trainees from other medical specialties. There are also three foundation year 1 trainees and four substantive Advanced Critical Care Practitioners.

Glasgow Royal Infirmary provides tertiary care for Burns, Pancreatic disease, complex Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery, Intestinal failure, Abdominal and Musculoskeletal Sarcoma Surgery and Gynaecological cancer. The Regional Plastics service and the Invasive Placental Disease service are also located at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Glasgow Royal Infirmary is the adult hub of the National Burns Service.

We have an active research programme, in conjunction with the University department of Anaesthesia, Pain and Critical Care. The existing consultant body has varied interests and expertise including quality improvement, ultrasound, education, ventilation and respiratory disease, ethics, diagnostic error and academic critical care.

The job plan would be able to accommodate some sessions in another service. The most common service commitment outside critical care is Anaesthesia – it will however be possible to accommodate sessions in medicine or emergency medicine.
