Leighton Hospital

Nestled in the heart of Cheshire, with green fields bordering the site on every side, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff benefit from great work, home, education and leisure opportunities. The Trust has three sites, including its headquarters at Leighton Hospital in Crewe – 35 minutes from Manchester or Liverpool and less than an hour away from Birmingham, yet only half an hour away from the Peak District. There are some excellent day nurseries and schools in the local area, including 22 Ofsted “Outstanding Providers”. 

The Trust has a formal clinical partnership with its nearby University Hospital, benefits from local universities in Crewe (Manchester Metropolitan University )and in Chester. 

The Trust was rated as ‘Good’ by the CQC from its October 2014 full inspection, has a good reputation for research and benefits from some of the very latest clinical facilities; these include Critical Care, neonatal intensive care, a new suite of state-of-the-art theatres and a dedicated day case Treatment Centre. The Trust has invested significantly in recent years in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the range of indicators. 

Applications are invited for a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon with a special interest to meet the needs of the service, at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The successful candidate will join a team of five Consultants, one Specialty Doctor, two Specialist Registrars (on rotation from Health Education England – North West), one Core Trainee and one Foundation Year two Doctor based at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. This post is a replacement post and is expected to provide a general workload in addition to the subspecialist workload. 

Out of hours cover is provided locally during the week but at the weekend, acute admissions are transferred to the Royal Stoke Hospital (University Hospital of North Midlands, UHNM). The middle grade rota is shared with UHNM both during the week and at a weekend. The Consultant rota is only shared with UHNM at the weekend. The successful applicant will be based at Leighton Hospital, Crewe but may also undertake sessions at Victoria Infirmary, Northwich. 

The ENT service has been experiencing a period of growth and development and has seen an increase in referrals. The department offers a wide range of subspecialty care and has links with other tertiary centres for the provision of complex major surgery such as for cancer and paediatric airways disease. Outpatients services are provided in a purpose built ENT out-patient unit and benefit from integral advanced nurse support and are complemented by an active audiology department. 

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC including a License to Practice, and be on the Specialist Register (or be within six months of obtaining their Certificate of Completion of Training). 

The post is offered on a full-time basis; however, the Trust would welcome discussion with individuals looking for a more flexible working pattern to support a different work life balance.
