We recognise that our people are our greatest asset. We are delighted to be able to offer opportunities for talented, motivated and enthusiastic clinicians. The Trust has developed proposals for the next, and very exciting phase in the Trusts history. If approved they would create – over the next five years – more centralised care at our Trust in two specialist centres. An emergency care centre with a dedicated paediatric unit and a specialist centre for planned care in a brand new hospital. As part of our investment in the future we have a number of Consultant posts that we are recruiting to. If you want to work in a dedicated, warm and friendly team providing compassionate care submit an application.

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust is a dynamic and successful organisation, winner of the hospital of the year award 2010, with a strong organisational and personal development focus. With over 5,500 employees and a turnover of £310 million, the Trust provides a comprehensive range of secondary care services to the people of Calderdale and Huddersfield. The Trust was awarded ‘Acute Trust of the Year 2011’ by the Health Service Journal.

During an exciting time of expansion for respiratory medicine within the Trust we are potentially looking to appoint 2 Consultants to help expand and consolidate the services currently provided by the Trust. The posts involve out-patient and in-patient duties and a regular commitment to the acute medical take. The post would provide opportunities to develop areas of special interest including difficult asthma, Sleep medicine, TB, and a Respiratory admission avoidance service.

The long term vision is for respiratory medicine to be based on one site with the development of a separate respiratory rota. 

Applicants must be on the General Medical Council Specialist Register or within six months of being admitted to the Register for trainees if in a training programme within the UK. In accordance with the regulations, all other categories of doctors must be on the GMC Specialist Register to be considered for a consultant appointment by the Advisory Appointments Committee. Applicants must continue to hold a License to Practice.

The Foundation Trust aims to design and implement services, policies and measures that meet the diverse needs of our service, population and workforce, ensuring that none are placed at a disadvantage over others. This is a permanent post which is predominantly based at Calderdale Royal Hospital but with the expectation of providing cover to both sites as necessary. These are full time posts based on a 10 PA contract.
