Consultant in Surgery with an interest in Emergency Medicine
As part of the programme to modernise the emergency surgical care in YDH we are looking for a full time consultant general surgeon to be part of the developing Emergency Surgery and Ambulatory Care (ESAC) team at YDH. The Ambulatory Care Unit is well established in YDH and we are expanding this model to include a dedicated ESAC clinic with ultrasound support and ESAC theatre sessions. The initial development is to create this service with two surgeons covering four days a week with the potential to expand the service.
The aim of the new service is to improve the quality of emergency general surgery and reduce the inpatient requirements for emergency surgical patients. The new service will run in conjunction with and support, the existing general surgical on-call and the successful candidate will have a 1:8 on-call commitment. There will also be space in the job plan for the successful candidate to retain a specialist interest session.
