Consultant in Stroke Medicine
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 has recently invested significantly in stroke therapy services and provides 5 times a week therapy to patients across 7 days. Early Supported Discharge is in place across both CCGs. There is a quarterly Stroke Strategic Group with participation from partners such as YAS, CCGs, the Stroke Association, community providers and patient representatives. The Trust is committed to continually developing its stroke services and is therefore looking to appoint an additional consultant as part of the ongoing improvements.
The Trusts Acute Stroke and Thrombolysis Centre has Level 2 accreditation and the stroke service was one of the first to receive national accreditation. It provides TIA and minor stroke management, acute stroke management, thrombolysis service and stroke rehabilitation and there is a shared telemedicine rota for thrombolysis, with two local NHS Trusts.
