You are invited to apply for a Consultant post in Acute Medicine at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Acute Physician or Specialty Physician with an interest in Acute Medicine to join our team of six whole time equivalent Acute Physicians (additional posts may be available by the time of interview). Candidates’ dual trained in General Internal Medicine and Specialty Medicine would be welcome to apply and specialty sessions would be considered and accommodated where possible.

You will strengthen our Acute Medical department in its aim to provide timely consultant review to the unselected medical take. They will also allow an excellent teaching programme to be delivered to University of Buckingham undergraduate medical students. Undergraduate medical student teaching will be central to all of the acute medical consultant’s job plans.

We believe Acute Medicine to be hard but rewarding work that requires a balanced job plan allowing time for reflection, away from direct clinical care. This is essential for sustainability and to ensure we have the best diagnostic physicians working at the front door to ensure high quality patient care, junior doctor supervision and efficient service delivery.

You will be expected to participate in teaching both under and postgraduate students associated with the University of Buckingham and will also be expected to support colleagues doing these activities as part of his or her arranged job plan.

Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital. This allows us to attract, train and retain the best doctors and contribute towards the financial stability of the organisation.

The hospital is the premier teaching hospital for the newly created University of Buckingham Medical School. The first students will graduate in 2019 and currently all years of medical students are being taught at the hospital. There are significant opportunities in the field of medical education both in the delivery and organisation of teaching.

We believe the continued growth of the hospital will allow us to expand and improve our services to offer the very best care to the people of Milton Keynes, and beyond.

Located just 50 miles north of London, Milton Keynes has excellent access to the capital whilst being centrally located for Oxford and Cambridge and having ease of access to the north.
