Substantive Consultant in Elderly and General Internal Medicine with an interest in Frailty/Interface Geriatrics

Applications are invited for a Consultant in Elderly Medicine. This is a substantive appointment to start as soon as possible based at Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

The elderly care department has expanded in recent years and works very closely with hospital management and the CCG in developing our services. We have an active and enthusiastic department with several sub-specialty interests contributing to the care of older patients as well as general medical patients in the hospital.

Our successful Frailty Service was established 3 years ago with funding from our CCG who have been committed to developing closer working between the community and secondary care. The service has expanded to include 3 consultants, a full junior team and specialty nurses supporting front door and in-patient work. Through ongoing work with the CCG and STP there are plans to further develop community pathways and care for older people in our area.

Applicants wishing to arrange an informal visit, please contact Dr Catherine Rippingale Clinical Director for Elderly Medicine or Dr Abdul Malik, Consultant Geriatrician on 01483 314333 x 4007.
