(10 PAs)

Help us provide outstanding care in beautiful West Sussex – we are seeking enthusiastic and motivated Consultant colleagues to join our existing Emergency Medicine team in St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester.

The 10 PA contract is made up of a 3 day week with a 1 in 5 on-call commitment (weekends) which allows a 3 day weekend for 4 out of every 5 weeks.  

Both departments have been graded as Outstanding by the CQC and we continue to undertake improvement projects to further enhance our patient care. Both departments continue to perform well with regards the 4 hour target, with Emergency Floors created on both sites to enhance flow, decreasing the number of patients who experience exit block.  We have just received further capital funding to further improve both Departments.

Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the only CQC-rated “Outstanding” hospital trust on the south coast.  We’re an ambitious organisation that champions our people, equipping them with new skills to continually improve services for patients.  Our hospitals are all situated along the beautiful Sussex coast, nestled against the South Downs National Park.

All newly appointed Consultants are mentored, via the “WSHFT Mentorship scheme for senior medical staff”.
