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, benefi ts 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 benefi ts 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 signifi cantly in recent years
in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the
range of indicators.

As part of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s commitment
to developing and expanding its Respiratory Medicine service, the Division
of Medicine and Emergency Care wishes to recruit two new Consultants.
The successful candidates will join a team of Consultants committed
to developing the Respiratory Service at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS
Foundation Trust.

These are substantive posts and you will join two existing Consultants
undertaking outpatient clinics, bronchoscopy, thoracoscopy, EBUS,
and ward rounds on the Respiratory Unit. Consideration would be given
to any candidates wishing to develop areas of specialist interest within
respiratory medicine.

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 Certifi cate of Completion of Training).

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

The Trust’s new recruitment premium means that individuals choosing
to come and work at MCHFT in the role of Consultant Respiratory
Physician will benefit from an additional £22,800 on appointment,
in addition to their basic salary, with an additional £22,800 paid at the
completion of four years’ service. The premiums are in addition to
relocation packages of up to £8,000 being offered by the Trust to you
when you join.
