You are invited for the post of Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine with a subspecialty interest in Neurosciences and Trauma Intensive Care, based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

Addenbrooke’s Hospital is the Major Trauma Centre and the quaternary centre for Neurosurgery for the East of England, serving a population of 5.8 million. This thriving, modern teaching hospital is the local hospital for people living in the Cambridge area and is the regional referral centre for a number of specialties, including Cancer Surgery, Transplantation, Plastic Surgery, Vascular and Paediatrics. Addenbrooke’s offers unparalleled capacity for teaching, including involvement in the high fidelity simulation centre, and research within the department as well as the wider biomedical campus.

You will be leading and coordinating the care provided by the multidisciplinary team of the Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care Unit (NCCU). NCCU is an expanding critical care unit (currently counting 23 beds and 1000+ admissions per annum) providing critical care to victims of major trauma and to patients with complex neurosurgical and neurological disease, as well as to a smaller number of general ICU patients. NCCU full medical complement consists of 12 consultants, 15 STR/ Clinical Fellows and 2 FY2 doctors.

The provisional job plans advertised are designed for candidates with a dual specialisation in Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthesia. Candidates with a single specialty in Intensive Care Medicine (or with a dual CCT in specialties other than Anaesthesia) may also be considered for the NCCU component of this post.

The Department of Anaesthesia has a complement of 80 substantive consultants and a variable number of trainees and clinical fellows of all levels of seniority.

You should be fully registered with the GMC, have a CCT in Intensive Care Medicine or be within six months of award of CCT at the time of interview, and evidence of recent clinical experience necessary to fulfil all aspects of the job plan.

You must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
