With an innovative, committed team making positive changes happen daily, there has never been a better time to join us here at Salisbury. We are seeking highly motivated, inspirational future leaders to drive our Acute Medicine area forward. Your role as a Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine is dedicated to ensuring effective and high quality acute care, an essential part in contributing to the reshaping of our front-door medicine services.
