The Trust has developed proposals for the next exciting phase in its development. Over the next five years we will centralise care at our Trust in two specialist centres - an emergency care centre with a dedicated paediatric unit in Calderdale, and a specialist centre for planned care alongside our new Acre Mills Outpatient Centre in Huddersfield. The Trust is recruiting a Consultant Anaesthetist with an interest in Pain Medicine to undertake sessions at both Calderdale Royal Hospital and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. Pain procedural lists are undertaken on the CRH site, and clinics on both sites. The appointed consultant will participate in the General Anaesthetist on-call rota at HRI. At CRH there are nine operating theatres with a central PACU, while on the Huddersfield site there are six theatres with a central PACU which forms the main theatre suite. In addition there are a further three theatres located in a purpose-built self-contained Day Surgery Unit.
