Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest hospital trusts in England, delivering services from two general hospitals in thriving Gloucester and beautiful regency Cheltenham. Gloucestershire has excellent transport links and stunning countryside, and was recently ranked in the top three places to live in the UK. Gloucestershire Hospitals has a £500m annual operating income, 960 beds, over 125,000 emergency attendances and nearly 800,000 outpatient appointments each year. We have over 8,000 members of staff who are committed to providing high quality acute elective and specialist services under our vision of ‘Best Care For Everyone’ to a diverse population of almost 620,000.



Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust was formed in 2002 and became a Foundation Trust in 2004.

We are looking to appoint four Acute/General Physicians, to join a dynamic team of acute physicians.

Candidates who have other specialty interests are welcome and sub specialty session can be considered within the job plan. Current plans regarding reconfiguration provide an excellent opportunity to be involved in the expansion and development of our services.

We are looking for a colleague with enthusiasm, strong self-motivation and the skills necessary to contribute to the development of our patient-centred service.

With its close proximity to the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, its excellent cultural and recreational facilities, superb housing and schools, you will find Gloucestershire a highly desirable place to live and work.
