Advancing your specialty. Pursuing research and teaching opportunities. Growing your expertise and management skills. Whatever you’re looking for in your next career move, you’ll find it all with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). 

We’re currently offering opportunities for Consultants in Acute Medicine, in our Manchester Royal infirmary, North Manchester General Hospital and Wythenshawe Hospital sites. 

About Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT): 

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust is a major teaching Trust encompassing 9 hospitals alongside community services for both adults and children: Altrincham, Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI), Manchester Royal Eye Hospital (MREH), Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH), St. Mary’s Hospital (SMH), Trafford Hospital, the University Dental Hospital, Wythenshawe Hospital and Withington Community Hospital, plus North Manchester General Hospital in 2019. We’re working together to provide a single hospital service, pooling our knowledge, skills and resources to make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester and beyond. 

As the leading provider of tertiary and specialist healthcare services in Manchester, we treat more than a million patients every year. We’re also England’s largest provider of specialised services, and are leading the way in service re-design as part of the Shelford Group. We have a strong academic record, too. Working in partnership with The University of Manchester and other collaborators we’re making Manchester a centre of cutting-edge research to help improve healthcare worldwide. 

Acute Medicine at MFT: 

At Manchester Royal Infirmary, our department has consultants who work between acute medicine and other areas such as renal medicine, respiratory medicine, endocrinology and intensive care. Consultants with subspecialty interest will be allocated time in job plans for DCC and SPA in areas of interest.

At North Manchester General Hospital, the Department of Acute Medicine is part of the Directorate of General Medicine that provides medical services to the population of North Manchester, Bury and Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. Acute Medicine is provided from inpatient beds at North Manchester, plus ambulatory care unit which will initially see the majority of the non-elective medical admissions. We have an excellent track record for consultant development in education, management, governance and service improvement. The site has the regional tertiary Infectious Diseases Unit. We offer teaching hospital opportunities in a DGH environment. 

At Wythenshawe Hospital, Acute Medicine sits within the Urgent Care directorate within the Division of Medicine. Acute services are centralised on the Wythenshawe site, following a significant new build which includes acute medicine and surgery, together with the Emergency Department (ED), ICU, CCU and HDU facilities and a day-case unit.

Your professional and personal development with MFT: 

We’re committed to offering attractive sustainable packages and opportunities to progress your specialty. For the right candidates, we’re also open to flexible job planning which may include education, management or dual specialties in a range of medical and critical care specialties; as well as part time working. If you’re a newly appointed Consultant, our New Consultant Development Programme will support you after making the transition from trainee to Consultant, and help you grow your leadership skills. Whatever your current level of experience, you’ll share and grow your expertise with colleagues across the Trust. And, with the best of both inner city and country living on our doorstep, you and your loved ones can enjoy a great quality of life too. The Economist’s ‘Global Liveability Index 2018’ certainly thinks so too.

To join us you’ll need: 

To join us, you’ll need to be entered on the GMC Specialist Register or be eligible for CCT or equivalent within six months. Skills in supervising trainees, teaching junior medical staff, leading a team and communicating with multidisciplinary colleagues are vital.
