Trust Core Trainee

Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen in Surgery at the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. We require junior doctors in Surgery (Core trainee level and junior registrar level) to work in a number of surgical departments. Although not formally recognised for training, each doctor will have the opportunity to rotate through a number of surgical departments, initially at core surgical level (2 years) then at junior registrar level in a related specialty for a further year, gaining valuable experience, working alongside surgical trainees at every stage and often on the same rota as trainees in the department.

Internal rotations will be structured to allow experience in a number of related surgical fields, for example orthopaedics / neurosurgery / plastic surgery, or general surgery /urology. Successful candidates will be allocated a supervisor to help guide their career aspirations, and will have the opportunity to access surgical expertise in a wide variety of disciplines.
The 2 main hospitals in the Trust are Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital and serve a population of more than one million for certain services such as Radiotherapy, Neurosurgery, Cardio-thoracic Surgery and Renal Dialysis.

The Trust has been the base for the Postgraduate Medical School since 1994 with extensive opportunity for research. It accepted its first intake of undergraduate medical students into the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) in September 2003. Post-holders would be encouraged to use the facilities on offer to improve their portfolios with a view to applying for a surgical training post.

Candidates should have achieved Foundation competencies or equivalent certification (including ALS certification) and should have a licence to practice from the General Medical Council. It is advisable that applicants have some experience of working in the UK as these posts are at Core level which requires an understanding of the UK health system. Communication skills are an essential part of the job.

The Trust is situated in an area of the country where the cost of living is very reasonable. It has excellent access to other parts of the UK and overseas, including quiet roads, direct rail links to London (2 ½ hours), Manchester (2 hours), ferry services to the continent, and flights to the international hub of Schiphol from Humberside airport.

Hull has been selected as the UK City of Culture 2017 and in preparation for this is undergoing a massive transformation with many exciting events planned. It is a thriving university city with excellent shopping and leisure facilities including concert halls, theatres and the largest aquarium in Europe. It is surrounded by attractive villages and countryside with the Minster town of Beverley only 8 miles from HRI and 4 miles from CHH. It is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Moors and Dales and the East Coast.
