Surgical Service Centre

Clinical Fellow (ST3+ equivalent) in Trauma & Orthopaedics

A Clinical Fellow is required in the Trauma & Orthopaedic department and this post will be associated with a sub-specialty team in Orthopaedics. This role will support the busy orthopaedic service assisting in theatres, fracture and elective clinics and trauma ward rounds with regular sessions for research. This post will also be part of the night on-call registrar rota.

St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK, closely integrated to the St George’s Hospital Medical School, part of the University of London. We are a joint cancer centre with the Royal Marsden and one of the key providers of secondary and tertiary services in SW London. We are one of the few Trusts in England to provide both acute neurosciences and cardiothoracic services on one site.

In January 2004 elective hip and knee surgery transferred to the newly opened South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre. This has allowed for the development of tertiary and trauma services at St George’s Hospital. Routine elective spine, foot & ankle and shoulder surgery has also been relocated to the Elective Orthopaedic Centre. The trust is a major tertiary referral centre for pelvic and acetabular surgery, hip and knee reconstruction, paediatric surgery, spinal surgery and complex trauma.

St George’s is a level 1 major trauma centre with a helipad facility, and the leader of the South West London and Surrey Trauma Network, which has been fully operational since April 2010. The network incorporates 7 acute hospitals (3 in London and 4 in Surrey), and two ambulance and two air ambulance services covering a population of more than 26 million. The trust has a history of treating major trauma, receiving approximately 2400 trauma calls per annum of which around 600 are Injury Severity Score (ISS) > 15.
