We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and dynamic consultant with special interest in Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthetics, Acute or Emergency Medicine or any other compatible base specialty.

The critical care unit is amongst the longest established critical care units in the UK. The clinical team is led by a multidisciplinary consultant body comprising of consultants in critical care and other specialties (four consultants in critical care/anaesthesia, a consultant in critical care /emergency medicine and a consultant in critical care and physician).

The critical care team is extremely active in original and portfolio research, education, teaching and training. There is an active patient follow up programme.

The critical care is hosted within a state-of-the-art, future proof, modern facility, in close proximity to theatre and the regional burns unit.

We have two Higher ICM trainees and Clinical Fellows. The junior doctor’s rota is covered by twelve trainees, with a minimum of two trainees covering the unit at any time.

St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the leading acute Trusts in the North West of England. We provide a full range of acute adult services to our local population of circa 350,000 and provide tertiary services across a much wider area in the North West, North Wales and Isle of Man. We are a Major Trauma Unit and the Mersey Regional Burns Unit.

Our '5 Star Patient Care' strategy is at the heart of all that we do; supporting our vision to provide world class services for all our patients by getting it right for every patient, every time.
