Withybush General Hospital, Haverfordwest
Consultant Physician in General Medicine
with a special interest in Diabetes and Endocrinology 
(37.5 hours/10 sessions)

We are looking to recruit a motivated Consultant for Physician in General Medicine with a Special interest in Diabetes & Endocrinology for Withybush General Hospital. This is a new post to work alongside the current Consultant in providing specialist Diabetes and Endocrinology services to the population of Pembrokeshire and joining a Health Board compliment of 12 Consultants responsible for the provision of Acute General Medical services to the County. 

The Medicine and Care of the Elderly Programmes have been merged and there is a single medical admission system with common on-call rota through purpose built Emergency Department and Adult Clinical Decision Unit facilities. Admitted patients are streamed at time of initial assessment to Speciality care depending on defined needs. Pembrokeshire has an above UK average elderly population and the Care of the Elderly Department is particularly well resourced with several new Consultant appointments to meet this need. Inpatient care is according to a ward based model with teams of Junior Doctors allocated to each ward area. 

It is anticipated that once department reorganisation and recruitment is complete both consultants in D&E will have responsibility for patients in the same ward area to facilitate prospective cover arrangements for annual and study leave. Typically 20-30 unselected acute medical patients are admitted each 24 hour on call period with a greatly varied case mix Pembrokeshire being a very popular UK holiday destination.
