It will be possible to provide specific three month secondments to address relevant educational and competency needs.Secondments available include Anaesthesia, ITU, Acute Medicine and Paediatrics.

You will have three years post registration experience, of which 12 months will have been spent in an Accident & Emergency Medicine setting at ST1/2 level or higher with a commitment to a career in Emergency Medicine.

The post of Specialty Doctor is full time (although applications from part-time candidates are welcome) and full participation in the 1:6 shift pattern rota with your middle-grade colleagues is required. All shifts are full shifts on site and there is no on-call cover.
