Be part of something special In the heart of Yorkshire

Every one of our 8000 staff at the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust plays a vital role in providing quality care to thousands of people living across Wakefield and North Kirklees each year

We’re proud to say that our hard working, talented and dynamic workforce is our greatest asset. If you are a dynamic, innovative forward thinking clinician who would like to make a significant contribution to the Trust then you could become part of the team. We can offer a supportive working environment -in first class facilities - where excellence and innovation is valued and celebrated by providing excellent training and development opportunities and by offering a comprehensive package of staff benefits. The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is a large multi-site Trust and we are completing the final stages of our ambitious programme to reconfigure services in line with leading national and international care delivery models.

If this sounds like something that you would like to be part of then the following roles may be perfect for you.

Pinderfields Hospital - Wakefield

Pontefract Hospital  - Pontefract

Dewsbury and District Hospital Dewsbury

We are looking for a dynamic and motivated Elderly Care Consultant to join our friendly and enthusiastic team.

The successful candidate will join other substantive Consultants in providing the highest quality care possible for older patients across our three hospital sites and the respective communities of Wakefield and North Kirklees.

You will be joining a very proactive team at a time of great opportunity as the trust develops new exciting innovative models of care for older people including the development of frailty models across both sites. If you are interested in acute Elderly medicine, more conventional Elderly care, orthogeriatrics, community medicine or a mixture of any of the above, then this is your opportunity to fashion a job plan that is best suited to your needs.
