The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a Consultant in Stroke Medicine.
The duties of this replacement post will be to assist and support the development of stroke services at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT) primarily on the Good Hope and Heartland Hospital sites. A recent reconfiguration within the Trust has led to the consolidation of hyper-acute stroke services within Birmingham Heartlands Hospital (BHH) in accordance with ‘Hub & Spoke model’ with acute stroke units on the other 2 Trust sites [Good Hope (GHH) and Solihull Hospitals (SH)].
HEFT offers a comprehensive Stroke Service including thrombolysis, 7/7 neurovascular clinics, post stroke neuro-rehabilitation and specialist interest stroke clinics. Vascular surgery is co-located at BHH with a well developed relationship with the local Neurosciences Centre for interventional and neurosurgical referrals
Applications are invited for this new post of Consultant Physician in Stroke Medicine (full or maximum part time), to be appointed to the Directorate of Stoke Medicine at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (Teaching). The post will be centred primarily on the Good Hope and Birmingham Heartlands site, with stroke related duties across the 2 sites.
Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust provides services for the east and north Birmingham, Solihull, parts of Warwickshire and South Staffordshire. The population served is approximately 1,000,000. The area which Birmingham Heartlands Hospital serves is essentially urban with some relatively deprived inner city areas, but the catchment area extends into dormitory suburbs and further afield into rural populations
Hyperacute stroke care has gone through a significant reorganisation and is now centralised in BHH. Acute stroke care is also provided in GHH and SH. A new monitored 16 bed hyperacute stroke unit has been developed in BHH complemented by a 16 bed ASU. This is supported by daily neurovascular clinics, Vascular Surgery, ESD, intermediate care and community stroke services. Telemedicine is in operation as is a repatriation policy to ensure patient flow. Neuroradiology and Neurosurgery support is provided by Queen Elizabeth hospital. There is joint fortnightly neuroradiology meeting with the neuro-radiologists from Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
