Applications are invited for the post of FY2 Level Trust Doctor in Trauma & Orthopaedics. An exciting opportunity has arisen in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery at the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

We require junior doctors at Foundation Level which, although the posts are not formally recognised for training, will allow doctors to obtain their foundation competences (if required) in an acute specialty and gain experience rotating through acute orthopaedics (adult and paediatric), elective orthopaedic surgery (adult and paediatric), and the Major Trauma Centre. Overnight care of plastic surgical trauma patients forms an interesting additional part of the job. Significant practical experience and training in the management of acute medical conditions will also be an integral part of the job. You will be supervised by a resident registrar 24/7 on the acute site.

Successful candidates will be allocated an educational supervisor to help guide their career aspirations, access to study leave and training funds, and access to an e-portfolio.

The two hospitals in the Trust are Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital and serve a population of more than one million for certain services such as Radiotherapy, Neurosurgery, Cardio-thoracic Surgery and Renal Dialysis. All acute orthopaedic and trauma admissions go to Hull Royal Infirmary, which is a designated Major Trauma Centre; Castle Hill Hospital is the elective site.

The Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has an annual budget of circa £481 million, employs over 8,000 staff and serves an extended population of 1.2 million. The Hospital is a Teaching Hospital linked to Hull York Medical School 

The Trust has been the base for the Postgraduate Medical School since 1994 with extensive opportunity for research. It accepted its first intake of undergraduate medical students into the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) in September 2003. Post-holders would be encouraged to use the facilities on offer to improve their portfolios with a view to applying for a training post.

Candidates should have achieved F1 competencies or equivalent certification. ALS certification is desirable, but training will be available if required. Candidates should have a licence to practice from the General Medical Council. It is desirable that applicants have some experience of working in the UK but previous applicants have used this as their first UK post. Communication skills (in English) are an essential part of the job.

The Trust is situated in an area of the country where the cost of living is very reasonable. It has excellent access to other parts of the UK and overseas, including quiet roads, direct rail links to London (2 ½ hours), Manchester (2 hours), ferry services to the continent, and flights to the international hub of Schiphol from Humberside airport.

Hull has been selected as the UK City of Culture 2017 and is undergoing a massive transformation with many exciting events happening and planned. It is a thriving university city with excellent shopping and leisure facilities including concert halls, theatres and the largest aquarium in Europe. It is surrounded by attractive villages and countryside with the Minster town of Beverley only 8 miles from HRI and 4 miles from CHH. It is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Moors and Dales and the East Coast. 

Please note this post will include out of hours on call commitments and will attract enhancement payments as per 2016 T&C.

As a Trust Doctor working with Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, you will be entitled to receive the following:

  • A named Educational Supervisor
  • 10 Study Days Leave per annum
  • £500 of Study Leave Allowance per annum
  • Access to an e-portfolio 
  • An assigned Appraiser and access to Multi-Source Feedback 360° (if required) and an Appraisal System

This job would be particularly suitable for doctors wishing to progress towards an FY2 training post. The department has an excellent record of previous trust doctor post-holders successfully doing so. This post is available for 12 months initially from 2nd August 2018.

The 2 main hospitals in the Trust, Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital serve an extended population 1.2 million. The Trust is a Cancer Centre and also a tertiary referral centre for a population of more than one million for certain services such as Radiotherapy, Neurosurgery, Cardio-thoracic Surgery and Renal Dialysis.
