Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is pleased to announce the introduction of these new roles aimed at doctors who are passionate about their practice and their career outside traditional models.  Our posts will combine education and career development with practical patient-facing care.

These posts are not recognised UK training posts.  Nevertheless, MYDoc doctors will have a named supervisor and be supported in undertaking scheduled educational opportunities to consolidate and develop alongside their experiential learning, with certificated outcomes or credentialing to support career progression through other routes.

An Introduction to the Division / Specialty from Dr Mark Freeman  -  Divisional Clinical Director

The Medical Division at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust provides Acute care across the range of medical specialities in a large modern purpose built hospital in Wakefield, which includes a large Acute Assessment Unit, Acute Elderly Assessment Unit, Coronary Care and Acute (Respiratory) Care Unit.  We also provide care for Acute Elderly Admissions and step-down care for patients in a less acute phase of their admission at Dewsbury & District Hospital.  

Successful applicants will support speciality teams in Acute Care, Cardiology, Respiratory, Diabetes/Endocrine & Elderly Medicine teams in the management of their in-patient and outpatient workload, and will participate in out-of-hours cover across both hospital sites. 

These posts will be part of our cross site “senior trainee” rota – which is compliant with working time regulations and the 2016 junior doctor’s contract, averaging 48 hours per week.
