This is from the British Medical Association Journal, not my usual reading, so again I missed it - it’s from January and is more good news;
ASHFORD AND ST PETER’S HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST
CONSULTANTS EMERGENCY MEDICINE
Three whole time positions
11.5 Programmed Activities (PAs) per week
Are you an enthusiastic, committed and energetic Emergency Medicine Consultant, looking for a role to make your mark in an ambitious team? Are you committed to excellence in patient care and outcomes, ready to work in Partnership with Medical colleagues, senior nurses and managers to develop a high-performing Emergency Department?
Whether you are a newly qualified Consultant looking to make your mark or a more experienced Consultant looking for a new challenge, Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust would like to hear from you.
Ashford and St Peter’s Emergency Department is driving forward radical improvements to the way we provide our patient care and is creating three new positions to form a Consultant team of ten. You will join a professional and cohesive team to provide expert Clinical Leadership to the wider Medical and Nursing Team, ensuring that the highest level of Clinical Care is delivered with energy and a passion for excellence.
These unique roles will provide valuable experience to St Peter’s Hospital to share with your peers as well as the wider divisional team as part of the Hospital’s ongoing commitment to implement innovative practice and invest in training and developing staff at all levels.
As far as our facilities are concerned, we are ambitious here too. In addition to our recent extension of the Department to include a ‘pit stop’ facility and Clinical Decision Unit, we are undertaking a further extension later in the year, when we will be adding new office facilities for Consultants, close to the Department. At that point we will begin the physical transformation of the Department by completely remodelling, rebuilding and extending the current facility to provide a modern, spacious and cutting edge Unit.
We pride ourselves on the quality of care we provide to our patients. We are passionate about recruiting the very best candidates who will become an integral part of a team that has a deeply embedded passion to deliver excellent care to our local population and beyond.
If you are interested in these exciting opportunities and would like further information please contact Dr Peter Wilkinson, Divisional Director, telephone: 01932 723139. Closing date: 27th January 2013. Interview date: Monday, 11th February 2013.
I’m going to be taking a look at what is actually going on in the next few weeks – but it’s been a couple of days of good news.
