Consultant In Intensive Medicine
Available either as a single specialty or with a ‘partner’ specialty.
With a view to further improve the quality of care offered to patients, applications are invited to join our dedicated and cohesive team of consultant intensivists.
This exciting opportunity has arisen as part of the first phase of a 5 year plan which will lead to a fully-integrated critical care service in Salford. We invite applications both from those doctors completing their training in ICM, and from established consultants who are looking for new challenges to further develop their already successful careers. Any special skills possessed by applicants will be used to supplement those of the established consultant group, to the benefit of patients and the service over the coming years.
Successful applicants can work full time in critical care. Alternatively, those with dual accreditation may choose to work in both specialties for which they have trained. Sessions in anaesthesia, acute medicine and emergency medicine have already been discussed and agreed by the appropriate departments, but other specialties will be considered and may be accommodated should suitable candidates apply.
Salford Royal is a major teaching hospital affiliated to Manchester University. It is a Trust renowned for delivering high quality, patient-focused care and has stated aims to become ‘the safest organisation in the NHS’.
You will join our existing team of 16 consultant intensivists. The critical care unit is a mixed general and neuroscience facility which admits more than 2000 patients each year: more than 1200 of these patients require level 3 support. It is housed within the new ‘Hope Building’ which offers state of the art facilities and an exceptional working environment.
This first phase of the critical care reconfiguration will lead to integration of high dependency care for surgical and medical patients at the Trust, in preparation for changes in service delivery across the Manchester conurbation. It is anticipated that these changes will be operational by April 2017.
The Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre and Intestinal Failure Units are both based at the Trust along with other tertiary surgical and medical services. SRFT is one of three acute trusts which manage major trauma for the North West of England: critical care plays a vital role in the current and future developments of all these specialist services.
