Consultant in Geriatric medicine

Applications are invited from accomplished and enthusiastic individuals with general and geriatric medical experience (GMC Specialist Register or within 6 months of CCT) to join our highly regarded geriatricians, contribute to a significant development in the geriatric service and to be involved in the general medical on-call as we develop our 7-day services across the Trust.

We currently have specialist services in orthogeriatrics and osteoporosis, POPS surgical liaison, Parkinson’s and movement disorders, and a front door OPAL service. Applicants will have the opportunity to contribute to any of these services and potentially develop new services.

Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton is a successful, progressive and award-winning Foundation Trust, affiliated to the Medical School of Bristol University, and serving a population of 330,000. We have recently opened a new surgical unit to join our existing modern medical buildings and also have a new £6m cardiology unit and a £20m cancer centre. Somerset is a great place to live and work. Taunton is a thriving county town with good schools.

We are only minutes from spectacular areas of outstanding natural beauty, varied coastline and family friendly beaches.
