The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust
Locum and Substantive Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E) provides Acute and Community services across Exeter and East Devon serving a population of more than 450,000 people. In our latest CQC full inspection of our services, the RD&E received an overall rating of “good”. We were rated as “outstanding” for our Emergency and Critical Care services, and for Caring Trustwide.

Acute Medicine at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital is an ambitious and dynamic department with a clear focus of delivering quality care as demonstrated by our CQC rating of outstanding in our caring attitude to patients. To achieve our ambitions we have created two exciting Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine posts.

These posts will allow us to expand our already successful Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) area allowing it to extend its hours and deliver high quality and effective care for our patients.  As part of our engagement in the work of the Devon Sustainability & Transformation Partnership, the RD&E is working increasingly closely with local provider organisations in a networked approach to clinical service delivery.  We are specifically developing links with North Devon Hospital , and provide a number of regional services to our neighbouring trusts.  We will support incoming colleagues in developing their specialist interests whatever they are, and actively welcome applicants who want to work less than full time.  We will work with you to construct a job plan that suits you.
