Consultant in Elderly Care
Lincoln County Hospital
These are 2 whole time Consultant Geriatrician appointments for the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust. This is an exciting opportunity to continue to develop the frailty unit in a forward thinking Acute Geriatric Service. The service enjoys considerable support from ECIST and the Acute Frailty Network. These are additional posts to meet the growing demand for expert multidisciplinary input into the management of patients with complex needs coming through the front door and requiring admission.
We have developed a Frailty Assessment Unit (FAU) with 19 beds and deliberate in-reaching at the front door and are continually improving our services. Our plan is to reduce the number of beds to 16 with a focus on an additional ambulatory element of 4 chairs, supported by frailty trained nurses and an increased ACP workforce.
