Applications are invited for a consultant post in Geratology and Acute General Medicine (AGM) with a special interest in Perioperative medicine.
This post is key in the further development of our surgical liaison and
perioperative medicine services. We already have embedded geriatricians/physicians on the trauma unit and the acute surgical emergency
unit. The trauma and acute surgical emergency units are also supported by
specialist trainees in Geriatric Medicine. We are looking to strengthen our input into these areas as well as expanding into other surgical disciplines (such as neurosurgery and vascular surgery).
The successful candidate will be expected to help direct complex decision
making around acute illness with respect to urgent surgery, post-operative
management and rehabilitation. They will be supported by the existing
consultants working in these areas. Enthusiasm for acute and internal medicine is a key requirement together with skills in management of frail older patients on surgical wards.
