Main duties of the job

We have an exciting opportunity for a respiratory physician to join our Respiratory Department at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals. This is a new position within respiratory and provides the successful candidate with the opportunity to develop their own area of sub-specialisation.

Along with established specialised Cardio-thoracic Surgical and Sleep Medicine services (including polysomnography), the trust has approved the development of a dedicated Medical High Care Unit (MHCU) alongside our recent acute Respiratory Assessment Centre (RAC) and a dedicated Pleural Diseases service. We are currently setting up a community respiratory service that will include our respiratory virtual ward.

About us

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is ideally situated just a forty five minute drive from Manchester. The Trust provides services to the 440,000 residents of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and North Lancashire, as well as specialist tertiary care for Cardiac and Haematology patients.

As one of the United Kingdom's largest coastal resort, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents - it's not just a good place to work it's a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the famous Blackpool Tower. Blackpool also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round our local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as boasting panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool also benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.
