Consultant in Emergency Medicine
The Leeds Teaching Hospitals - The Leeds Way
Leeds General Infirmary/St James’s Hospital
Required to fill this replacement, 10 PA post.
Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has undertaken a major investment in its Emergency Medicine services to provide specialist Consultant led trauma care at the Leeds General Infirmary which has been designated a Major Trauma Centre, and a 24/7 Consultant presence in the Emergency Department.
The Emergency Departments in Leeds have an excellent reputation for quality, innovation and education. The Emergency Medicine service treats in excess of 200,000 new patients per year.
Acute services in Leeds have undergone extensive reconfiguration to deliver trauma based services and paediatrics on the LGI site and acute and elderly medicine at St James’. The Emergency Departments have undergone modifications to reflect these patient flows, including expansion of the Paediatric ED on the LGI site. All Consultants work across all areas of the Emergency Departments on both sites.
The two departments have an excellent reputation for training. We provide subspecialty training in Paediatric Emergency Medicine for trainees from both Emergency Medicine and Paediatrics.
This post is part of a Consultant team which delivers a 24hr Consultant presence in the Emergency Departments. It is expected that newly appointed Consultant will share this commitment with all members of the current team. We recognise the importance of ensuring that work patterns of our Consultants are sustainable.
