We are seeking an enthusiastic geriatrician to expand and support the development of our departments and someone with an interest in interface geriatrics, frailty, and falls would be welcomed. This is a substantive post.

Joining our Hillingdon Team provides a unique opportunity for joint working across boundaries as we move into an Accountable Care Partnership (Hillingdon Health and Care Partners- HHCP) between the Acute Trust, Central and North West London Foundation Trust who provide community and mental health services, Hillingdon GP federation and the Voluntary Sector (H4All) to provide outcome based care for the over 65 population in Hillingdon. We envisage increased development of specialist services jointly provided by all 4 partners in HHCP especially in admission prevention, falls, fracture liaison service, ESD and care home liaison. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to be involved in this work with support from an established and supportive team.

We are currently developing our academic links with the nearby Brunel University with a vision towards setting up and driving forward an academic health campus with close links between the University and Hillingdon Hospitals Trust. The trust is already involved with the Physicians Associate program run through Brunel.

The post holders will participate in the on-call emergency medical rota on an approximately 1:18 basis.
