The Trust is seeking the appointment of a LAS Foundation Year One Trainee to commence on as soon as possible for a period of 11 months until 2nd August 2017.
The James Paget University Hospital is a friendly and forward thinking district general hospital which aims to provide excellent care to the population of Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and Waveney. It has been rated as excellent for clinical care and resource management and has been a Foundation Trust since 2006. It is a teaching hospital of the University of East Anglia and has a large state of the art postgraduate education centre. The James Paget Hospital has been consistently ranked among the top 100 “Best NHS Providers to work for” in the Health Service Journal, due to its supportive atmosphere and positive management culture. CQC inspection in 2015 rated the hospital “Good” overall, with outstanding leadership in urgent and emergency care.
The hospital is located between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, near wonderful sandy beaches and the renowned Norfolk Broads. There are plenty of leisure activities on offer, and the excellent shopping facilities of Norwich are only a short drive away. There are a number of good local schools and the area is perfect for bringing up a young family. House prices are generally lower than in the rest of the South and East, meaning you get a lot more for your money whether buying or renting.
Although this position does not carry Postgraduate Dean’s approval for training recognition, it offers full teaching and training opportunities.
All applicants will be required to demonstrate a working knowledge of the English language.
Onsite single hospital accommodation is available, married subject to availability.
