We wish to recruit 3 Trust Fellow Doctors in Critical Care Medicine to work on our ICU/ HDU ward in Yeovil, in the South West of England.
These posts are available from 31st October 2018 until 6th August 2019.
You will be working on a 5-person rota to provide additional medical cover to the 10 bedded combined ICU / HDU ward. Overnight duties are not required in this rota.
These posts may be attractive to Doctors who have completed their Foundation Training Programme and wish to work in the South-West whilst pursuing a career in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care, Acute Medicine, ACCS, or Emergency Medicine. Experience gained in the post would be relevant to all these specialties.
These posts would also be suitable for Doctors who have completed Core Training in a relevant specialty, and are waiting to secure a post in Higher Specialist Training.
The posts are part of the department of Anaesthesia. Doctors will be supported whilst on duty by more senior resident Anaesthetists in the hospital, and the ICU Consultant. There will be opportunities to learn the full range of Anaesthesia and ICU related practical procedures. The case mix is Emergency, Medical and Surgical. Doctors waiting to re-enter training roles will be supported to complete audit, research, teaching and management activities if desired.
You will gain experience in procedures such as emergency endo-tracheal intubation, rapid sequence induction of anesthesia, video-assisted intubation, invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilator support, use of mechanical ventilators, chest drains, insertion of central venous (CVP) lines using ultrasound guidance, arterial monitoring lines and catheters, insertion of cardiac output monitoring lines and systems, insertion of hemodialysis venous catheters, use of haemo(dia)filtration machines, and other renal replacement therapies.
