A full-time Consultant Anaesthetist is required for Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. The post has an interest in orthopaedic and urology surgery.

Nottingham University Hospitals Trust was created by the merger of Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital. There are Anaesthetic Departments based at each campus, both are large and active departments which have close operational links. The Anaesthetic Departments are also integrated with the Critical Care and Pain Management Services, which with Theatres form the Clinical Support Division (CSD).

The Clinical Director for CSD is Dr David Selwyn and the Lead Clinician for Theatres and Anaesthesia is Dr Mike Bennett. There is, in addition, a Specialty Lead on each campus; Dr Adam Carney at the City campus and Dr Hannah Sycamore at the QMC campus.

Across the two campuses there are a total of 47 operating theatres. All surgical specialties and obstetrics are covered between the two campuses. With regard to specialties – cardiac, thoracic, renal and burns and plastics are located at the City campus which is also where most of the cancer surgery is undertaken. The QMC anaesthetic department supports a very significant acute surgical workload, including trauma orthopaedics, major trauma, neurosurgery and spinal surgery.

The Clinical Departments of Anaesthesia maintain close links with the University Department headed by Professor Ravi Mahajan. The Clinical and University departments collaborate to provide teaching for undergraduates in addition to all grades of anaesthetic trainees.

Locally, specialty training in anaesthesia is managed by the East Midlands School of Anaesthesia, part of the East Midlands Deanery. The Anaesthetic departments are actively involved in the training of specialty trainees at all levels and the School of Anaesthesia has a strong reputation.

We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date should we have an overwhelming response to this advert.
