Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is offering the rare opportunity to combine a demanding and rewarding job in Acute Medicine with an unrivalled lifestyle in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of the country.

We are seeking to recruit a Consultant in Acute Medicine to join our friendly innovative team of seven consultants and three GP’s who are committed to providing the very highest standards of care.

The Acute Medicine department at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is a dynamic department known for taking a proactive role in service development, quality improvement, and education and training. Acute Medicine benefits from strong departmental and directorate leadership and has easy working relationships with the hospital executive team through its work in development of our acute services.

Acute Medicine is well known as a nurturing and supportive department both for senior medical staff and for doctors in training. We work collaboratively with the well-established multidisciplinary teams of nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and discharge co-ordinators on our two Emergency Assessment Units and our Acute Medical Unit, all of which maintain a strong culture of safety and professionalism.

At Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust we have an ambitious and inclusive vision to improve health and well-being for our local population. The Trust was formed in 2015 by an acquisition process that not only brought together acute and community health and social care services into a single integrated care organisation (ICO), but committed to delivering an exciting and ambitious new model of care for the population of Torbay and South Devon. Our model of care aims to support people as close to their own home as possible and empower them to manage their own health and wellbeing as far as they are able.

We need an enthusiastic, motivated and innovative clinician to join us in the next stage of our vision which will see us work in closer partnership with primary care, voluntary services to deliver high quality services.
