Consultant – Emergency Medicine
Our friendly Emergency Department is looking to recruit a 7th Consultant. The successful applicant will assume a direct clinical role within the ED along with the remaining 6 ED Consultants to provide senior medical staff “shop-floor” presence during weekdays and provide a comprehensive one in six weekend cover. Prospective cover arrangements are built into the job plan.
In line with RCEM guidance and with support from the Executive team, we are aiming to provide cover for 16 hours per day with Consultant cover, when there is a total of 10 Consultants.
The Emergency Department provides a comprehensive emergency medicine service for North Bedfordshire with a rapidly expanding population upwards of 300,000. There has been a steady increase in the annual attendance to the ED with a disproportionate increase in the number of emergency medical admissions and complexity of cases. The ED now sees over 80,000 patients per year and is also a dedicated Trauma Unit.
You will enjoy being part of an innovative team who are passionate about emergency medicine and are preparing to meet the present and future challenges of the National Emergency Care Agenda.
