Consultants in Emergency Medicine (7 posts)

We are currently advertising for 7 Consultants in Emergency Medicine to work at Leicester Royal Infirmary. These are a mix of new and replacement posts. One of the posts has a protected research component.

This is an exciting time to join the consultant team in Leicester. There is an increasing emphasis on consultant-led clinical care – there is already consultant shop-floor cover from 08.00am to 01.00am, 7 days a week. With a projected 19.8 WTE consultants, there is ample scope to develop sub-speciality interests such as Critical Care, Paediatrics, Pre-hospital Care, Acute Medicine & Geriatrics, and in Emergency Medicine research.

“The funded establishment is for 19.8 WTE NHS and academic consultant staff, which allows for flexibility of the rota and roles, including special interest areas. We have national level experts in the fields of acute geriatrics, paediatrics and emergency medicine research. At the current time we are seeking those with added experience in pre-hospital care, acute geriatrics, research and critical care, but our team is big enough to accommodate diversity.”

The closing date is 3 March 2012. Please get in touch with me if you would like any further information about these posts, or about working in Leicester.
