New consultant posts have arisen within medicine for older people in Wexham Park as a result of a complete reconfiguration of the service.

In line with the local priorities of the ICS services for older adults are to be transformed, encouraging innovative ways of working to remove boundaries between community providers and the acute Trust.

For those patients who cannot be managed in the community we aim to provide excellent clinical care in an environment specifically designed to be in line with the needs of older adults, particularly those with dementia. We have a newly refurbished older people's unit specifically for the needs of older adults and those with dementia.

Main duties of the job

We need enthusiastic individuals who can work alongside our existing consultants to further develop our Acute Frailty Service and to bring individual special interests to build on our current services.

These posts would particularly suit those looking to work within an organisation that is leading the way in the delivery of genuinely integrated care.

About us

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust provides NHS hospital services for around 900,000 people across Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey and south Buckinghamshire.

As well as delivering excellent general hospital services to local people, we provide specialist heart attack, vascular, stroke, spinal, cystic fibrosis and plastic surgery services across a much wider area.

We have three main hospitals - Frimley Park in Frimley near Camberley, Heatherwood in Ascot and Wexham Park near Slough.

Our three core values, and the behaviours that support them, guide everything we do and set out what we expect of our staff in the way they treat patients, visitors, service users and each other, Committed to Excellence, Working Together and Facing the Future.

We are also proud to host the Defence Medical Group South East at Frimley Park with military surgical, medical and nursing personnel working alongside the hospital's NHS staff providing care to patients in all specialties
