Job Details

There is an exciting opportunity to join the team of Critical Care Consultants at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. This post will be based at Heartlands and Good Hope Hospitals. All consultants are expected to work cross site according to service requirements. We welcome applications from candidates with dual speciality backgrounds or ICM alone.

Heartlands hospital provides 15 level 3 equivalent ITU beds within a 20-bed footprint over 2 floors. Good Hope has a purpose built ITU, currently open to 6 Level 3 equivalent beds. Nursing and medical staff rotate between both Heartlands and Good Hope sites. The units support sub-specialties including vascular and endovascular surgery, ENT, upper GI, colorectal, urology and cytoreductive surgery, specialist medicine including cystic fibrosis, infectious diseases as well as paediatric emergencies. Both hospitals have busy emergency departments.

You will join a dedicated and enthusiastic team of consultants and nursing staff, supported by 24/7 Critical Care Outreach teams and experienced Advanced Critical Care Practitioners. All units are recognized for the quality of their education and training programmes, and we have an active Critical Care research department with two Professorial posts, an NIHR Senior Lecturer and a team of dedicated research nurses. We offer a weekly cross-site educational program along with CUSIC and FICE training and we welcome those with an interest in education, training and simulation.


University of Birmingham ImagesUniversity Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in England, serving a regional, national and international population.

It includes Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Solihull Hospital and Community Services, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham Chest Clinic. We also run a number of smaller satellite units, allowing people to be treated as close to home as possible.

We see and treat more than 2.2 million people every year across our sites and our hospitals deliver more babies than anywhere else in Europe.

We are a regional centre for cancer, trauma, renal dialysis, burns and plastics, HIV and AIDS, as well as respiratory conditions like cystic fibrosis. We also have expertise in premature baby care, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery and have the largest solid organ transplantation programme in Europe.

We provide a series of highly specialist cardiac, liver and neurosurgery services to patients from across the UK.

We are world-renowned for our trauma care and have developed pioneering surgical techniques in the management of ballistic and blast injuries, including bespoke surgical solutions for previously unseen injuries. As a result of its clinical expertise in treating trauma patients and military casualties, the QEHB has been designated both a Level 1 Trauma Centre and host of the UK’s only £20m National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre (SRMRC).

We have over 20,000 members of staff and we are committed to investing in their development and their health and wellbeing.
