Come and join our friendly department of 22 Consultants, 14 SAS doctors, and 13 trainees in beautiful North Wales.
Wrexham Maelor Hospital is one of 3 District General Hospitals within BCUHB and provides health care for North East Wales, but also receives patients from North Powys and Shropshire. There are 650 acute beds and most specialities are provided that would be expected in a large DGH. Adult and Paediatric Tertiary services are provided from Liverpool and Stoke.
The Anaesthetic Department services a variety of surgical specialities including the regional Upper GI service as well as providing support to the Critical care Unit and Obstetric Unit. There is a well developed Pre operative assessment unit, including CPET, and a Pain Management service.
The post has a commitment to Intensive Care Medicine. The Critical Care Unit has 12 beds, nominally 5 ITU beds and 7 HDU beds and has mixed medical and surgical admissions. Consultants cover the unit for a week at a time, with separate cover for ITU and HDU. There will be an on call commitment to the Critical Care Consultant rota. The Critical Care Unit is part of the North Wales Critical Care Network, and we work closely with the other 2 units in North Wales. As well as a commitment to critical care, the post includes general anaesthesia for a variety of lists, the nature of which will depend on the needs of the Department and the experience of the successful candidate.
There is an active teaching programme both within the Department and across North Wales.
Living in North-East Wales provides easy access to surrounding areas of outstanding natural beauty & the Snowdonia National Park, while still being convenient for the cities of Manchester & Liverpool with their international airports. The historic Roman city of Chester is just 13 miles away, from where London can be reached in around 2 hours by train.
Responsibility for health care in Wales is devolved to the Welsh Assembly Government, so at the time of writing medical staff contracts in Wales are not subject to the egregious attempts at renegotiation occurring in England.

This is an exciting time for us here at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. We are the largest health organisation in Wales and, as a fully integrated organisation, provide a full range of primary, community, mental health, acute and elective hospital services for a population of almost 700,000 people across six counties of North Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham), as well as some services to parts of mid Wales. We serve a bi-lingual population and are committed to improving their health and well-being through everything we do.
The Health Board employs around 16,000 staff and has a budget of around £1.1 billion and is responsible for the operation of three district general hospitals (Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, Ysbyty Glan Clwyd near Rhyl, and Ysbyty Maelor in Wrexham) as well as 22 other acute and community hospitals, and a network of over 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units. It also coordinates the work of 121 GP practices and NHS services provided by North Wales dentists, opticians and pharmacies.
We are undergoing a significant phase of transformation, review and renewal that will position us to achieve our future ambitions as the leading integrated care organisation in Wales. Central to this journey will be the contribution of our workforce who with strong team working skills, will be able to demonstrate the values that are important to us, communicating well with both colleagues and patients, who have the vision and ability to help move our services forward whilst getting the best of each other, treating others with respect and dignity and never compromising on quality.
Work where you want to live, North Wales has something for everyone!
