Consultant in Medicine for Older People
We are seeking a Consultant Geriatrician, who is dedicated and passionate in helping us to provide outstanding and exemplary care for older, frail patients in the South West.
Following development of our Frailty strategy and recruitment of three other geriatricians this year, this is a very exciting time to work within the Specialty of Medicine for Older People at North Bristol, particularly if you wish to enhance and develop your skills and career.
We can support you if your interest lies in Specialty Liaison work such as working with surgical specialties, specialist clinics such as syncope, rapid access clinics, rehabilitation or other areas that you wish to progress. The post holder will work with ten other Medicines for Older People consultants in providing a range of services for older people with complex needs, and so you will have a supportive and friendly team around you, providing plenty of scope for you to showcase your skills and to learn more.
This is also a great opportunity for you to live and work in Bristol; a city in the hills of South West England, with its own thriving art, music and cultural scene hosting a number of exciting annual festivals such as the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate extensive experience in Medicine for Older People and must be in possession of CCT in General Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine. Applicants are required to be on the Specialist Register for General Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine. Full Registration with the GMC is essential.
