Consultant in Emergency Medicine
This is a joint post between University Hospitals of Leicester and the The Air Ambulance Service (TAAS). It is envisioned that the post will include one 12 hour shift per fortnight working for the TAAS and the rest of the job plan will be worked for UHL.
UHL is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in the UK. The Emergency Department (ED) is based at Leicester Royal Infirmary where we currently see 150,000 patients a year.
Phase 1 of a multi-million pound rebuild of the emergency department was completed in April 2017. The new build incorporates a 32 cubicle majors department, a 12 cubicle Emergency Room and a separate Children’s ED with 12 bedded Short Stay Paediatric Unit for children who are expected to stay less than 18 hours
The ED in Leicester has pioneered an annualised consultant rota which is increasingly being adopted in other centres. This offers personal flexibility, within a large committed team, time for sub-specialty interests in existing Consultants and support for others.
Despite the clinical work pressures and challenges, our ED is a leading light nationally in Paediatric EM, EM Research, EM education and Geriatric EM and is actively developing a program in Pre-Hospital EM.
Leicester offers the option of rural or city living, excellent state and private education, easy access to London by train (55min) and East Midlands airport (30min).
Interested candidates are welcome to discuss the posts with Dr Vivek Pillai – UHL ED Head of Service (Adults) via Elizabeth Cadman-Moore on 0116 258 5965 and Dr Matthew Wyse - Clinical Lead for TAAS at email@example.com
The closing date is the 9th of July 2018, however candidates must contact Dr Matthew Wyse to book on to the Air Ambulance Service Assessment day. The next assessment day is on the 6th of July 2018, more information about this can be found by clicking on the additional information link.”
