This is a new and exciting post actively supporting the development of Integrated Care and Frailty services between the community and the elderly medicine service within the hospital. 

The trust is looking to appoint a dynamic geriatrician who will provide a high quality, efficient, patient focussed interface service across an identified locality within Bedfordshire. The post holder will work closely with existing Consultants, GPs and the community multidisciplinary team to provide a comprehensive elderly frailty service for patients in the community, avoiding acute admission as appropriate.

This post is the first of three proposed community geriatricians who will have individual responsibility for designated localities within Bedfordshire. The trust is looking for a highly motivated candidate who has the vision to improve services for older people and who can work effectively with the multidisciplinary team to lead and deliver this.

Bedford is a beautiful County Town, with some excellent schools and lots of things to do in and around the locality. We are 20 minutes from major airports and access links to the main motorways and link roads; trains to London take around 35 minutes with links to other main towns and cities on our doorstep.

If you are interested in this post we would be pleased to hear from you, come along for an informal visit, meet the team and enjoy lunch in our award winning restaurant.
