Do you share our values? We’re looking for applications from people who:

  • care about what they do;
  • respect and value others;
  • listen in order to improve; and
  • always do what they can to be helpful

…to help make us a valued and trusted partner within our care system, that delivers safe effective care to our local population.


Salary will include an additional 20% Recruitment and Retention Premia, currently effective until 30th September 2017.

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has an ambitious programme of service modernisation and a reputation for providing high quality services. In line with our outlook, we are now inviting applications for this permanent Specialty Doctor position, in the Emergency Medicine team at York Hospital.

The postholder will join the Emergency department at York, which provides specialist services for acutely ill and injured patients. The department operates a 24 hour, seven day a week consultant-led service.

The Specialty Doctor rota for the Emergency Department at the Trust currently consists of Nights (1:6), Standard days, Lates and Weekends (2:8), the rota is merged between the Specialty Doctors and Middle to Higher level Specialty Trainees to ensure sufficient cover is provided to the Emergency Department at all times. The job plan available to view in the 'Additional Document' illustrates a prospective job plan converted from the rota.

Whilst this is not a recognised training post, the Trust does provide opportunities for those wishing to gain further experience in the specialty. Training, supervision and clinical experience will be similar to that of the middle to higher training grade doctors and tailored to the postholder’s previous level of experience.

Candidates must have full GMC Registration, while a familiarity with issues of service organisation and development would be particularly advantageous.

The recruitment programme for this position will take place in the form of a face-to-face interview. The date is currently to be confirmed, however we anticipate confirming a date no less than 2 weeks prior to the interview.

Please note;
No additional banding will be paid as the post holder will participate in a full shift rota with additional Programmed Activities applied where agreeable.

Clinical Director, Mr Stephen Lord ( ( Phone number removed ) )
