Consultant Acute Physician

Job Description



Chesterfield Royal is pleased to advertise 2 consultant posts in Acute Medicine to take our compliment to 6. This is to enable us to provide first class care to our patients with early input from a senior doctor, rapid signposting to the best clinical area and to further develop services such as our medical short stay ward and ambulatory care unit. This expansion in consultant numbers goes along with a planned major redesign of the whole of the urgent care pathway and a capital investment in both the Emergency Department and the Acute Medical Wards. It is genuinely an exciting time to come and work in acute medicine in Chesterfield.

Chesterfield Royal is a forward thinking Foundation Trust, always striving to improve services. It is set in a great location, being an attractive market town close to the major cities of Nottingham and Sheffield and only 10 minutes travelling time from the PeakDistrictNational Park, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
