Are you a Consultant looking for a challenging and rewarding career in Emergency Medicine?

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust lies in the heart of beautiful Lancashire countryside surrounded by a number of busy towns and communities. 

Our vision is simple – providing safe, personal and effective care to all our patients. We are an integrated provider of acute and community care and serve a population of 500,000. With a workforce of over 7,000 our staff benefit from great work, home and leisure opportunities.

Our principal site at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital is approximately 40 minutes’ drive to Manchester and an hour to Liverpool.

A career in Emergency Medicine at our Trust offers you the chance to be part of a progressive team, providing emergency care to over 150,000 patients every year. The Emergency Department and Urgent Care Centre at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital is the busiest in the North West of England and the focus of emergency care in the Trust, supporting the Urgent Care Centre on our Burnley General Teaching Hospital site. Both units have benefitted from recent refurbishment and investment. 

Our Emergency Department hosts higher specialty trainees and also trains medical undergraduate students. We have recently implemented phase one of a new Acute Medical Model which will deliver integrated and collaborative working across Acute and Emergency Medicine. 

The Trust was recently shortlisted for the HSJ and Nursing Times ‘Top 100 best places to work’.

We are now looking for enthusiastic and motivated Consultants to join our team. 

You will:
• Work in a dynamic environment
• Help shape our future integrated model for emergency care in East Lancashire
• Provide support and training to the multi-disciplinary team
• Be encouraged to develop your special interests
• Earn an attractive salary with recruitment and retention premium
• Receive enhanced PA rate for work beyond 22:00 

We are currently working towards a flexible self-roster system. We are also offering an attractive recruitment and retention premium of 30% based on the starting point of the Consultant salary.
