Job Details

An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and motivated doctor to join our department at an exciting time in our Trusts future. The Department offers a supportive and encouraging environment in which to develop as a professional with opportunities to develop in specialist fields.

The vacancy has arisen in the Trauma & Orthopaedics department for a senior orthopaedic trainee (preferably post CCT) to commence for a period of 12 months. This post has been developed as a training opportunity for registrars preferably post CCT before taking up consultant posts.

In Mid Yorkshire Hospitals, we perform approximately 500 knee replacement surgeries every year and approximately 200 ACL reconstruction procedures.

There is opportunity for the Knee fellow to train in performing primary knee replacements (Total/ Partial), primary ACL reconstruction, Arthroscopic meniscal surgery whilst at the same time getting exposure to revision ACL reconstruction, PCL reconstruction, complex multi-ligament reconstruction, high tibial osteotomies and cartilage procedures.

The post is not recognised for training by the Postgraduate Dean, although the duties and shift pattern are exactly the same as the training posts and study leave will be encouraged on an equivalent basis to that which applies to the educationally approved SHOs. The post will not have any on-call commitment.

Involvement in specialty and cross-specialty multi-disciplinary teams and meetings

About us

We provide care and support to over a million people in Wakefield and Kirklees in their homes, community settings and across our three hospital sites at Pontefract, Dewsbury and Pinderfields (Wakefield).

Always striving for excellence, we are at the forefront of innovation and research, and we invest in teaching and the development of our workforce.

We live by our values of caring, improving, being respectful and maintaining high standards. We listen and learn because we aim to make Mid Yorkshire the best place to work and receive care.

We value diversity and welcome talent and enthusiasm irrespective of age, disability, neurodivergence, sex, gender identity and gender expression, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or other personal circumstances including providing unpaid carers support to someone with a health and care need. As ethnic minority groups, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people with a disability/neurodivergence are currently under-represented across the organisation, we encourage applications from members of these groups. We have policies and procedures to ensure all applicants are treated fairly and consistently.

We are proud of our staff networks - who offer valuable guidance and feedback from those with lived experience.

We have a clear vision and you could be part of this! If you share our values and you want to make a difference to the lives of our patients and their families and carers, we would love to hear from you.
