There is a significant general medical component to the job, which candidates will be required to contribute to. They are involved in many aspects of elderly care including Dementia care, Acute frailty, Movement disorders and our Stroke team on our Fairfield site have recently been nationally recognised as the highest rated Stroke unit in the country for the care it provides.
This is a ‘family’ that is constantly striving for success for our patients and for our team. Our dedicated and passionate teams across our sites are seeking inspirational clinical leaders who are passionate about transforming geriatric services to deliver comprehensive, high quality care to our population across North East Manchester.
The successful applicant will hold full GMC registration, MRCP or equivalent qualification and be included on the GMC specialist register. A higher degree in a relevant clinical or management subject is desirable (MD or PhD equivalent).
