The Job

We have recently put a great deal of thought and effort into improving the work-life balance of our Critical Care Consultants. Two new additional posts have been created as a result of a change in our on call rota.

The innovative job plan detailed in the job description will illustrate how we have adapted our on call rota to prioritise both the welfare of our patients and our Consultants.

The on call rota has been designed to improve work life balance, reduce burnout and allow for flexibility as Consultants get older.

We hope to attract applications from both new and established Consultants who are looking to ensure that they get the right balance between life and work. We will support applications from Consultants wishing to work flexibly and/or less than full time.

Your Potential Colleagues

We are a dynamic group of Consultants who all have a CCT in Critical Care. At present our Consultants’ allied specialties are in Anaesthesia and Emergency Medicine. We welcome the opportunity to appoint Critical Care Consultants with any joint specialty.

Amongst our Critical Care Consultants we currently hold a variety of National and Trust positions. These include EDIC Examiner, FRCEM Examiner, RCOA examiner, AAGBI Board Member, NWAFT Associate Medical Director for Patient Safety, Chair of the NWAFT Resuscitation Committee and NWAFT Clinical Lead for Organ Donation.

We also benefit from strong links with the military and have three RAF Consultants with Honorary NHS contracts.

We are all strongly family focussed and understand the challenges faced by Critical Care Consultants with young families. We have developed a strong support network amongst ourselves and regularly make time for breakfast and a chat before the start of the working day.

The Area

Stamford and its surrounding villages is a popular choice amongst our Consultants and is only 20 minutes away from the hospital. Stamford is a small Georgian market town with spectacular scenery, historic charm and fantastic schools. Stamford was voted the second best place to live in Britain by a panel of judges in the Sunday Times back in 2017.

Nearby Rutland is England’s smallest county and has numerous beautiful villages and market towns. The east of the county is easily commutable to the hospital. The village of Barrowden (where two of our Consultants live) is listed as the second best rural place to live in Britain for quality of life by the Telegraph in 2018.

Oundle and its surrounding villages are also easily commutable to the hospital. It is a Georgian market town, smaller than Stamford and famed for its school.

Schools are always an important consideration when looking at an area and there are excellent primary and secondary schools in the area covering both the state (including grammar schools) and private sector (Stamford, Uppingham, Oakham, Oundle).

You will be required to be on the GMC Specialist Register or be within 6 months of CCT at the time of interview.  

This post is eligible for the Trusts internal Refer a Friend Scheme.
