We are looking to appoint Consultant Acute Medicine Physicians who share our values and enthusiasm to help consolidate our existing service.
The Trust sees these appointments as a key part of an exciting opportunity to develop an innovative approach to acute medical care that places unscheduled care as the central function of the Trust in collaboration with local community partners.
These posts will support the existing team in Acute Medicine and will be pivotal in delivering a Consultant led service for our Emergency Medical Assessment Units. They will bolster the current model of care provided by Acute Medicine specialists and increase the scope and the quality of our front line service.
This post has been devised to provide consistent Consultant presences on the Acute Medical Units ensuring national quality indicators for acute medicine are met. Consultant Acute Physicians will provide leadership on the Acute Medical Unit and in ED from Monday to Friday, supporting acute teams in the assessment, initial treatment and care planning for acutely ill patients referred from ED or local General Practitioners.
They will be responsible for the day to day clinical management of the unit and develop strong links with the ED, radiology, pathology and other clinical specialty teams to create efficient care pathways to improve the patient care. Leadership of the multidisciplinary team is required to promote early discharge. The daily rapid access admission avoidance ambulatory outpatient service is also to be supported by the appointee with the existing Consultant Acute Physicians.
