This is an exciting time to join Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT); with the recent building of world class facilities in Central Manchester together with the expansion of increasingly specialist activity there is a unique opportunity to develop your clinical interests in one of the largest Anaesthesia and Critical Care Departments in the UK.

The Anaesthesia and Critical Care Directorates have 94 consultants combined at present and are looking to expand. All posts are situated in the newly constructed facilities at CMFT. There are work and rest facilities for both Junior and Senior Medical staff including a library, seminar room, rest/refreshment room, IT facilities, laboratories and a comprehensive museum, unique in the region. The scale of the service enables significant subspecialisation within particular areas of interest and there are a number of Anaesthesia on-call rotas.

The Critical Care Directorate has a total of 40 beds split evenly between Level 2 and 3 in a recently purpose built unit together with a recently opened Elective HDU of 4 beds. The case mix is variable reflecting the many tertiary medical and surgical specialties which are centred within the hospital, in addition to the demands from a busy A&E Department. 

In addition there are the benefits of being located near to the facilities of Manchester Medical School and the University. 

CMFT is in partnership with the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) which provides patients and clinicians with rapid access to the latest discoveries, and improving the quality and effectiveness of patient care. Through extensive local, national and global collaborations, MAHSC is becoming a major biomedical and health hub, providing clinical and research leadership and helping healthcare organisations to reap the benefits of research and innovation to drive improvements in care.

The Directorates have invested in state-of-the-art equipment including over £1m worth of new monitoring equipment across the site and anaesthetic machines in all theatres. Projects are also ongoing to introduce Bispectral Index (BIS) monitoring, Oesophageal Doppler cardiac output monitoring across all theatre suites, availability of ultrasound facilities for the administration of nerve blocks, plus an expanded Pain Service to support the post-operative pain requirements of surgical patients and long term Chronic Pain needs.

Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major UK teaching hospital with an exceptionally strong academic and research base. The Trust comprises Manchester Royal Infirmary, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital for Women and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, which are based in the centre of Manchester, and the Trafford Hospitals Division, which is made up of Trafford General Hospital, Altrincham General Hospital and Stretford Memorial Hospital.
