Full Time

An excellent opportunity has arisen to become part of the Stroke and Elderly care Team at The Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust. These new posts are full-time appointments based at the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, to develop the stroke service as per recent East and Midlands’s stroke review and support the 7-day working of stroke Consultants.

There is an established stroke team at SaTH of 4 full-time stroke Consultants along with Consultants in Elderly Care Medicine providing a full range of services including stroke care, acute elderly care, rehabilitation, Orthogeriatrics and a movement disorder service.  Applications are welcome from those unable to work full-time for personal reasons. The on-call commitment will be for stroke thrombolysis telephonic advice service out of hours and weekend stroke unit ward rounds and TIA clinics on a 1 in 6 rota.

The Department is well supported by trainees providing opportunities for teaching in a friendly supportive environment. Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is also part of Keele Medical School teaching for up to 100 clinical students, so there is opportunity for you to pursue an interest in medical education.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust are aiming to recruit to a number of posts in Acute Stroke, Frailty/Geriatrics and Orthogeriatric’s. They are all offered with associated formal and approved Royal College Job Descriptions.

However overall the Trust wishes to increase its Consultant skill mix in these areas and has some flexibility in agreeing job plans that will deliver but could potentially be tailored to areas of special interest or preference. Potential candidates are asked therefore to come forward and discuss what they are seeking as a future Medical career.

This is an exciting time to come and work for SaTH as we embark on evolving a Centre of Excellence for Elderly Care and SaTH has a very successful unified Acute Stroke Unit based at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford.

It is essential that you have full GMC registration and hold a licence to practice, possess MRCP (or equivalent training and experience), and are on the GMC Specialist Register in Stroke/Geriatric and General Internal Medicine, or be within six months of obtaining a CCT at time of interview, CESR or European Community Rights.
