Locum Consultant in Emergency Medicine
Major Trauma Centre
Emergency Medicine evolves fast. At BSUH we are ahead of the game with a team of dynamic and enthusiastic colleagues, exploring different ways of working and expanding our departments, services and staff. We are not the finished article, but in the UK we are leading the way. Come and join us and help mould our future.
We treat 130,000 patients a year from a Code Red polytrauma brought in by one of our HEMS doctors to a minor injury. This is the spectrum of lives you touch in one day. Close links with Brighton and Sussex Medical School means you can also inspire new generations of doctors with the excitement of what we do. Top-rated by the Higher Trainee survey, we have an increasing number of Registrars and Associate Specialists. We also have a new cadre of 19 new non training junior clinical fellow posts who provide 66% clinical work and 33% project time. This has helped us recruit some of the best possible non training junior doctors.
We have 24/7 consultant delivered care and uniquely have found a way to make this sustainable. We self-roster with an annualised 42/52 week contract based on PAs which allows flexibility, as well as internal cover and shift over-runs.
The south coats is a great place to work with the beach is a five minute walk form the hospital and the South Down’s National Park a five-minute drive. With Arts and café culture, it is a great place to bring up kids.
We are developing a sustainable workforce able to enjoy delivering care not just now in 2015 but in 20 years time. We welcome applications from those wishing to pursue part-time work as our flexible rota accommodates unusual rota patterns. Applicants should possess full GMC registration, FCEM (or equivalent) and either already be on the Specialist Register or be within six months of receiving their Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) at the time of interview. We welcome established Consultants who are looking for a new challenge and way of life.
For those who may be able to only work 1-2 pas, we can accommodate this within our flexible rota – either with a small weekly contribution to the department or in periods of work and then periods off. This flexible working would therefore suit those who have other commitments - either NHS or outside or portfolio career – who wish to still keep practicing in a trauma centre whilst having other commitments.
