Consultants in Intensive Care Medicine
Applications are invited for exceptional candidates to join the Critical Care Directorate within the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board as full-time Consultants in Intensive Care Medicine.
It is an exciting time to join the Health Board with reconfiguration of the Critical Care footprint and planned expansion of our services in line with growing demand. Opportunities are available for appointees to develop clinical interests within the largest Critical Care Unit in Wales.
The posts are based at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, with some cover required at the nearby University Hospital Llandough.
The Critical Care Directorate has funding for 32 Level 3 equivalents but has capacity for 33 patients at University Hospital of Wales and 6 patients at University Hospital Llandough. There is also a 6-bedded Post Anaesthetic Care Unit and close links with Theatres, Cardiac and Neuro Critical Care.
The case mix of patients is variable, reflecting the tertiary surgical and medical patients hosted by the Health Board in addition to demands from a busy Emergency Department.
The appointees will join a team of 20 Consultants in Intensive Care who have a variety of special interests including renal medicine, trauma, research, emergency surgery, and neurosciences.
We have good links with Cardiff University and the Wales Deanery; as a teaching unit, we are driving forward a programme of medical education, international research, and innovations in intensive care. This is an excellent opportunity for dynamic individuals with the appropriate skills to join our multidisciplinary team.
Applicants should either be on the Specialist Register or be a Specialist Registrar within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT/CESR(CP) at the time of interview.
Interviews for these posts are expected to take place in February 2019.
