Job Description


Applications are invited for a permanent Specialty Doctor in the Department of Anaesthetics at this modern District General Hospital on the outskirts of Chesterfield . This will also assist with delivery of an increasing clinical workload and includes some night and weekend shifts as part of a full shift rota.

Chesterfield is situated on a green field site on the edge of the Peak District National Park and is also close to Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham, thus offering numerous choices for recreational activities and life styles. The Royal Hospital opened in 1984 since when it has continued to expand and modernise and currently comprises approximately 550 beds. It provides acute in-patient care for Chesterfield and the surrounding rural area of North Derbyshire, serving a population of approximately 350,000 people.

The Critical Care & Anaesthetic Department incorporates Theatre Services, ITU, HDU, Department of Pain Management, and forms part of the Surgical Specialties Division. As a successful applicant you will be joining a medical staff comprising 23 Consultants, Specialty Doctors, Specialty Registrars and Foundation Programme trainees.

A minimum of 4 years post registration experience, of which at least two should be in a recognised anaesthetic training post, and full GMC registration with a licence to practice is required. The department has a highly regarded training and development record and as a specialty doctor you will be encouraged and supported in your continued professional development. Daytime elective work will provide experience across a wide range of specialties some of which will be directly supervised by consultants. Further opportunities will be made available to develop individual’s special interests so far as is possible within the services provided.

Applicants are invited to visit or contact the department for further discussion. Enquiries about the posts and development potential should be made initially to

Dr Duncan Farquharson, Divisional Lead (Tel:  ( Phone number removed ) ) ( Email address removed )
