Exciting Opportunities to join our Emergency Medicine team

This is a great time to join our team and make a difference.
Kingston Hospital is a high performing and clinically led acute hospital providing healthcare to around 350,000 people in South West London and North West Surrey.
Emergency Medicine is a critical service for us and our Emergency Department is a vital part of the community that cares for around 110,000 patients every year. We are now looking for Consultants to join our expanding and diversifying team to play a key role in delivering acute medical care in the department. The service line is growing rapidly with the development of a six bedded Clinical Decisions Unit by the end of 2016 and has a number of new clinical models being developed – e.g. Frailty care models – in partnership with other internal and external specialties.
Our Emergency Department is equipped to provide high quality and appropriate care to adult and paediatric patients, the department is led by a Clinical Director, Service Manager and Matron. We are looking for dynamic, motivated team players who have worked previously autonomously in Emergency Care for Adult and Paediatric patients.
You will play a central role in the management of our Emergency Department. This will include being Consultant in Charge, including CDU; holding review clinics (paediatric and adult patients) and contributing to the on-call rota. You will also have flexible protected time to carry out professional activities, including department audits, training, attending specialty meetings and contributing to the department governance.
