Job Details

The successful candidate will play a major role in the modernisation of the emergency care pathway following the introduction of the national Clinical Quality Indicators and through an extensive programme of development in the Trusts and health economy emergency flow improvement programme.

This is an exciting opportunity for beginning the expansion of emergency provision at the Cumberland Infirmary and West Cumberland Hospital. We recognise the need to invest in our staff and support specialist skill development.

You will have excellent clinical skills and the ability to lead on the shop floor. You will be expected to be active in the teaching and supervision of all multi-disciplinary staff. We wish to continue to build our reputation as well as advancing standards of clinical care that are at the cutting edge of our specialty. We are looking for applicants who will contribute towards this and who will help us to drive the development of modern emergency care in our local health community.

Main duties of the job

Your job will have variety and challenge delivering care between our two unique hospital sites. You will find a great balance of a busy extended Trauma Unit seeing a case mix of complex major trauma being distant from our Regional Major Trauma Centre and you will also work in a rural setting with the ability to develop extended clinical skills and lead an established composite workforce.

The Cumberland Infirmary sitehas annual footfall of approximately 55'000 pts per year (11,000 Paeds cases). The department has a co-located OOH GP service run by Cumbria Health On Call (CHOC). We run an active Clinical fellowship programme and our trainee ACP programme has received national acclaim. Three of the Consultants contribute to the NHS England Clinical Educator programme, and other Consultant interests include Paediatric Emergency Medicine, Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine and Education/Simulation.

We have flexibility within our job plans to accommodate candidates with unique skill sets, so whether it's Simulation, Research, Intensive Care, PHEM or Paediatrics we want you and will value your special interests.
