Applications are invited for Acute Physicians, to join the existing team in our Emergency Assessment Unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, who provide acute and emergency care for medical patients accessing the Trust. We are looking for enthusiastic colleagues to join the department of acute medicine and drive service improvements in this department.

This post is one of four new substantive consultant positions due to the expansion of services at the front door. There is recognition of the importance and value of having appropriately trained acute physicians to lead these services and address the increasing challenges facing the NHS and emergency services.

We actively encourage special interests and flexible working patterns to support services within acute medicine, education and leadership projects. This is an exciting opportunity to develop new services and pathways within a dynamic and vibrant environment.

Our vision is to provide excellent Consultant led care for our patients from the moment they arrive, and to ensure rapid access to the right service at the right time, as well as maximising opportunities for ambulatory care and early discharge. In addition, the successful candidate(s) will have a pivotal role in junior doctor education and training.

The Trust Board is committed to significant investment in urgent care, including medical pathways. Acute medical admissions are managed in a 36 bedded purpose built emergency assessment unit accommodating emergency medical and surgical admissions which includes a hot lab for urgent investigations. 

Possession of MRCP or equivalent qualification is essential and applicants must be holders of a CCT in acute medicine with a sub specialty or be within six months of obtaining such a CCT.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Katherine McCullough, Clinical Director Acute Medicine (Katherine.mccullough@nhs.net), telephone: 01483 464049 or Ms Claire Barkley, Specialty Manager, telephone: 01483 571122 ext 4530/4321.
