This is a replacement post. The appointed candidate will join the already existing team of 10 Consultants. The appointees will participate in the general ED rota and workload, and will be encouraged to develop a special interest relevant to Emergency Medicine so complementing current Consultants’ interests.  Paediatric Sub-specialty training is required.  We have an adjacent observation ward which is well served by colleagues from mental health and community services, allowing rapid and appropriate discharge of patients to the Community. The successful candidate will provide general clinical ED sessions and senior input into patient care, ensuring appropriate discharge and hospital admission, along with management and leadership responsibilities expected of Consultants in the specialty. The department saw over 89,000 new patients last year; of which approximately 18,000 were paediatric.

This modern hospital has most specialities on site and has close educational and super-speciality links with both Bristol and Oxford. The ED resuscitation room is state-of-the-art with overhead x-ray gantry, supported by a fully computerised digital PACS system for viewing x-rays.

Surrounded by the Cotswolds, the Upper Thames Valley and the Marlborough Downs, and being just one hour in either direction to London and Bristol, Swindon offers a real lifestyle choice, whether you choose city living or a country retreat, always within easy reach.
