James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

1x Consultant Geriatrician posts (Full time or 50:50 with Specialty)

Come and join our successful team, located on the Norfolk coast, within walking distance of long sandy beaches and close to the beautiful Norfolk Broads. The James Paget Hospital has been consistently ranked among the top 100 “Best NHS Providers to work for” in the Health Service Journal, due to its supportive atmosphere and positive management culture. CQC inspection in 2015 and 2016 rated the hospital “Good” overall, with outstanding leadership in urgent and emergency care.

To expand the consultant workforce in medicine, we are looking to appoint1 Geriatricians to manage both our Geriatric inpatient ward as well as develop our front door multidisciplinary frailty service. We would welcome subspecialty interests in Parkinson’s Disease, Community Geriatrics, Acute Frailty or Ortho-Geriatrics. We would also welcome candidates who wish to work across two specialities e.g. Geriatrics and Stroke Medicine. The successful candidates would work alongside our current consultant and build on the progress we have made within this specialty over the past two years. We have a highly motivated, friendly multidisciplinary team in Geriatric Medicine who have established a fit-for-purpose frailty and geriatric service at this trust. We now want to build and expand on this success by assessing and managing more frail patients at the front door, thus improving patient outcomes.

The James Paget University Hospital is affiliated with Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia and so there is therefore ample opportunity to get involved in teaching.

Prospective candidates should be within 6 months of obtaining a CCT, or be listed on or eligible for the UK Specialist Register at the date of interview.

Whether you aspire to have a boat on the broads or play with your children on the beautiful beaches, the good local schools and competitive house prices allow you to maximise your NHS salary to get an excellent standard of living. The historic city of Norwich is only 30 minutes away and has an international airport; there are excellent rail links to London and easy access to the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich for access to Europe.
