Specialty Doctors in Emergency Medicine

This is an exciting time to join Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, as it has recently become one of the first vertically-integrated health and care organisations in the country.

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is an expanding innovative Foundation Trust, set in the heart of Torbay – The English Riviera, an area of outstanding beauty with unrivalled access to the sea and Dartmoor. The Emergency Department at Torbay Hospital sees approximately 78,000 cases per annum.

Applications are invited for Senior Trust Doctors in Emergency Medicine. This is an ideal opportunity to further your career in emergency medicine. We offer the opportunity to progress to Associate Specialist grade as well as being involved with training and development of staff and service improvement in the department.

The Department is innovative and enthusiastic and currently expanding the staffing within the department across all professions. We are committed to a consultant lead service delivering high quality emergency care to our patients and currently in the process of recruiting two additional consultants with plans to further increase to 12. The consultants are currently supported by six non training grades (adverts out for two additional staff) 32WTE STs, and 8 F2/CTs. We are also fortunate to have GPs working a hybrid job plan both within our department and in primary care.

The Emergency Directorate also operates a 49 bed Emergency Admission Unit and an Acute Medical Unit through which all acute admissions pass. This is staffed and supported by a team of Acute Physicians. There is also a Clinical Decision Unit which is run by the Emergency Physicians. Radiology is located immediately adjacent to ED with easy access to CT, Ultrasound MRI scanning and Interventional Radiology. This allows the rapid and definitive investigation of patients.

Nationally the Trust has been at the forefront of stroke thrombolysis, and is a designated Major Trauma Unit. Emergency and Major Incident planning is led by the department and has one of 2 MERIT teams based within the peninsula. The department is actively involved in research projects and has implemented a new IT system and is one of the first paperless departments in the country. The department has links through the THET charity with a developing hospital and Emergency Department in Kenya, allowing for opportunities to travel and experience innovation abroad.

Successful applicants will have a commitment to a career in Emergency Medicine and a desire for career progression. They will have completed a minimum of 12 months of previous Emergency Medicine experience. Doctors will be allocated an Educational Supervisor who will guide them through training opportunities, exam success and CCT equivalence via the CESR route as per individual needs.
