Consultant Cardiologists x2
Sub Specialty Interest negotiable
POST 1 : The Royal Oldham Hospital with cross site working where required
POST 2 : Joint Cardiologist & Acute Physician, cross site working. Base to be agreed
Enthusiastic and highly motivated clinicians are invited to submit an application for the posts of Consultant Cardiologist and Joint Consultant Cardiologist and Acute Physician.
These posts are substantive appointments. There are three Consultant Cardiologists at Royal Oldham General Hospital and four Cardiologists at each of the other Pennine Acute Hospitals in North Manchester and Bury.
The main base will be Oldham for post one and negotiable for post two.
Post two sees the merger of a Consultant Cardiology and Acute Physician post.
This post will work jointly across cardiology and the Acute Medical Assessment Unit (AMU) with in-patient ward work carried out on the AMU.
Candidates will be expected to be fully trained in all aspects of general cardiology and be able to manage cardiology patients admitted through an unselected general medical take.
Post One: - Royal Oldham Hospital has a fully staffed five bedded Coronary Care Unit and a General Cardiology Ward. The cardiologists manage all these cardiac patients for a week at a time on a 1:4 basis. During this “hot week” the candidate would be expected to see any cardiology patients admitted to the AMU and any cardiology referrals from around the hospital. In addition, there is a general cardiology on call commitment for the Trust (to cover Fairfield General, North Manchester General and The Royal Oldham hospitals) on a 1:11 basis for cardiological emergencies.
Post Two: - Fairfield General Hospital has an Integrated Cardiology Unit consisting of 18 in-patient beds coupled with the Silver Heart Unit Catheter Lab. The AMU forms part of the Emergency Care Village and offers both ambulatory and in-patient facilities.
North Manchester General Hospital has a separate Coronary Care Unit and a General Cardiology Ward.
The successful candidates will work closely with other speciality Consultant colleagues.
Fairfield General Hospital is popular with the cardiology trainees due to the availability of the two cardiac catheter labs, and the candidate would be expected to participate in training according to the training needs required. Office space and secretarial support is available.
The Trust employs over 10,000 multi-disciplinary staff in five hospital sites, making it one of the largest Trusts in the UK. Acute general hospital services are provided for the population of the North East of Greater Manchester. The Trust is bidding to become an NHS Foundation Trust and has placed the Trust Mission Statement at the heart of all its objectives ‘To Provide the Very Best Care for Each Patient’.
All Trust locations are within easy reach of Manchester City Centre which offers a plethora of leisure and social opportunities.
