Our NHS Trust in Manchester is committed to delivering excellent emergency care. If you would like to play an instrumental role as they reconfigure, expand and take forward the delivery of class-leading emergency care we would like to hear from you.
The trust recognises the key importance of providing excellent front-line care and would like to invite you to join them in the next phase of their development as they expand their Consultant team from 8 to 12. Depending on the number of recruits they will move in a staged manner to 1:10 and then a 1:12 rota.
Practicing Emergency Medicine at this NHS Foundation Trust offers :
– A varied and challenging patient case mix. As a dedicated Trauma unit we see 600 direct multiple trauma attendances per year. We have a formalised arrangement with a Major Trauma Centre in Manchester, to enable interested candidates to work sessions in the Major Trauma Centre.
– A co-located Children’s ED seeing 17,000 attendances per year and staffed 24/7 by Children’s Nurses.
– Comprehensive paperless documentation from arrival to discharge using iPads. This ground breaking innovation has interfaces with the other IT systems in the Trust and has improved quality and safety
. An adjacent Ambulatory Care Unit, run by a team of 7 Acute Physicians. There are established pathways to stream ED patients to ACU
– Acute Physician in-reach into ED with established rostered sessions
– An 8 bedded Clinical Decision Unit managed by the ED Consultants
– Opportunity for significant collaborative working amongst specialities and explore particular interests. For example, our new Short Stay for Older People Unit attached to the ED individualises and improves patient management by encouraging integrated speciality care.
– Assessment Units for Surgery, Paediatrics, Gynaecology & Urology enable direct streaming of suitable patients from ED Triage.
. A regional Stroke Unit Service. Patients are seen in ED by the Stroke Team, suitable patients are thrombolysed and all Stroke patients are admitted to a dedicated Stroke unit
– A multi-disciplinary team including an ENP-led minor injury service and a developing ANP service.
The trust is committed to developing unscheduled care and is working closely with all departments to drive this priority area. Part of that commitment includes expansion plans to build a new 60 bedded medical assessment unit and a surgical assessment unit adjacent to the Emergency Department. They are a dynamic and creative Emergency Department committed to building for the future.
Whatever your professional aspirations, whether you are seeking a post after completing training or you are an established consultant seeking a new challenge, we would like to hear from you. We are very interested in talking about how we can match your own interests to the requirement of the trust and we are perfectly happy to be flexible in finding a package that works for you.
The Trust has committed to offer to existing Consultants on appointment a Recruitment and Retention Premium. This is 30[%] of salary for a fixed period of one year with an uplift of 7.5 to 10 [%] per year over the next 3 years. If this is your first Consultant post the Trust will consider the option of an alternative recruitment Premium.
