Consultants in Emergency Medicine
What will the history books say about you?
We are recruiting Consultants looking to join a team to help redefine the delivery of Emergency Medicine in Shropshire. This is a chance for you to make a lifelong impact of the care of generations to come by developing the department and the staff you work with at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford.
We have successfully secured more than £300m of investment from the Government for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals. This paves the way for the NHS Future Fit programme to go out to public consultation. NHS Future Fit proposes that one hospital provides emergency care services (including women and children’s inpatient services) and the other hospital provides planned care services. Both hospitals would have an Urgent Care Centre that is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The proposed model of hospital care has been designed by members of the public and over 300 clinicians, GPs and social care professionals. Whichever option is approved, NHS Future Fit’s proposed model will ensure a wide range of hospital services will still be available at both hospital sites and, importantly, stay within the county.
There is already a strong core of both substantive and long-term locum members on the team, as well as middle-grade doctors, specialist nurses, enhanced clinicians and dedicated support staff. One of the ways we are improving employee experience, staff involvement, and engagement, is by recruiting according to our Trust values, behaviours and attitudes - do you have what it takes to create the Safest Kindest Care in the NHS?
Both hospitals are based in Shropshire and just 20 minutes’ drive apart. Shropshire is a wonderful place to live and few people would disagree. Shrewsbury, in particular, has recently been named as one of the top places to live in the country in the “Sunday Time Best Places to Live Guide”. It is a wonderful bustling place, with affordable housing, fantastic schools, and great out-of-work activities for everyone.
We are ideally located between the north and the south, making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
It is also a particularly good time to join the Trust as we are currently working in collaboration with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK trusts to receive this support from one of the safest hospitals in the world. We are 3 years into a 5-year journey - gain this valuable experience whilst you still can.
