Specialty Doctor in Anaesthetics
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust:
Anaesthetic Directorate – Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital
Specialty Doctor – Anaesthetics
We are looking to appoint a full time Anaesthetic Specialty Doctor.
This post is based at the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital site in Margate, Kent. The successful applicants will join a team of 15 Consultants, 4 Associate Specialists, 5 Speciality Doctors and a full complement of trainees. There may be an element of cross site working at either of the Trust's other 2 anaesthetic departments based at Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Canterbury and the William Harvey Hospital, Ashford. A suitable pattern of work across the Anaesthetic Directorate can be negotiated to take into account specialist interests and requirements for ongoing personal development, with consideration to rota requirements. The Anaesthetic Directorate within the Surgical Division across the Trust employs over 700 staff, across three acute sites.
The post includes daytime theatre commitments and participation in an on-call rota and currently attracts 12 PAs.
This post will cover a variety of theatre sessions. The QEQM Hospital currently covers General Surgery, Breast, Gynaecology, Trauma and Orthopaedics, & ECT, with ENT, Maxillofacial and Community Dental in the DSU. Some of these lists take place in Kent & Canterbury Hospital at Canterbury. In addition, we have a busy obstetric centre and a 9 bedded Critical Care unit. The Division has a policy of flexible working practices and areas of interest can be accommodated. There are daytime Emergency lists and a daily Trauma list.
EKHTrust boasts active post-graduate medical centres with fully stocked libraries, and a comprehensive teaching programme. Personal development is encouraged, as we are keen for individuals to pursue and develop special interests.
Kent is ideally suited for access into London and as a gateway to Europe. There are many areas of unspoilt countryside and some quiet secluded beaches as well as the main centres of population. The Stour Valley runs through the area and there are expanses of great natural beauty and charm together with many places of historic interest. There are outstanding local sporting facilities including sailing and golf and excellent state and private schools. Regular, high speed, train services and the M2 and M20 motorways provide easy access to London. The Continent is within immediate reach through the Channel Ports and Channel Tunnel.
