Leighton Hospital

Nestled in the heart of Cheshire, with green fields bordering the site on every side, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff benefit from great work, home, education and leisure opportunities. The Trust has three sites, including its headquarters at Leighton Hospital in Crewe – 35 minutes from Manchester or Liverpool and less than an hour away from Birmingham, yet only half an hour away from the Peak District. There are some excellent day nurseries and schools in the local area, including 22 Ofsted “Outstanding Providers”.

The Trust has a formal clinical partnership with its nearby University Hospital, benefits from local universities in Crewe (Manchester Metropolitan University) and in Chester.

The Trust was rated as ‘Good’ by the CQC from its 2018 inspection, has a good reputation for research and benefits from some of the very latest clinical facilities; these include Critical Care, neonatal intensive care, a new suite of state-of-the-art theatres and a dedicated day case Treatment Centre. The Trust has invested significantly in recent years in clinical expansion and hospital mortality is ‘as expected’ across the range of indicators.

As part of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s commitment to developing and expanding its Respiratory Medicine service, the Division of Medicine and Emergency Care wishes to recruit a Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine. The successful candidate will join a team of Consultants committed to developing the Respiratory Service at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

This is a substantive post and you will join two existing Consultants undertaking outpatient clinics, bronchoscopy, thoracoscopy, EBUS, and ward rounds on the Respiratory Unit. Consideration would be given to any candidates wishing to develop areas of specialist interest within respiratory medicine.

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC including a License to Practice, and be on the Specialist Register (or be within six months of obtaining their Certificate of Completion of Training). The post is offered on a full-time basis; however, the Trust would welcome discussion with individuals looking for a more flexible working pattern to support a different work life balance.
