We are looking for three Consultants in Acute Medicine to support further expansion in provision of Acute Medical Care within the trust. The successful candidate will join the existing Acute Medicine Consultant team in helping to deliver Acute Medicine Services.  Their main responsibilities will be to help with the Ambulatory Unit and Medicine in-reach service.

The Acute Medical Department currently covers several areas including a 76 bedded Acute Medical Unit which incorporates a higher level receiving area referred to as the Acute Care Bay and Acute Frailty Unit; along with a separate Ambulatory Area and 26 bedded Short Stay Unit.

The Acute Medicine Department aims to sustain its position at the forefront of advances in Acute Medicine. It is developing ambulatory care & triage services to prevent admissions and to offer new options to GPs seeking advice for acutely unwell patients. It is also developing a new in-reach service to the Emergency Department to facilitate rapid assessment and appropriate management of Medical Patients presenting via the Emergency Department.

A new bespoke Acute Medicine floor opened in June 2018, which includes a purpose built Acute Medical Unit co-located with the Emergency Department and Emergency Radiology. It also includes a dedicated Higher Dependency Area, Ambulatory Area and Acute Frailty Unit.

Closing date: 7th November 2018.
