Locum Consultant in Acute Medicine

Locum consultant – Acute Medicine 6 Months

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (BSUH) is currently going through an exciting period of change. The £500M “3T’s” redevelopment of The Royal Sussex County Hospital is underway and stage one will be completed in 2 years’ time; in addition, ambitious plans for the re-build of The Emergency Department are also nearing completion.

In January 2019, The Care Quality Commission (CQC) published its report following its inspection of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH). This showed a significant improvement in our rating to the second highest possible: ‘Good’. It also rated the Trust as ‘Outstanding’ for caring.

The Department of Acute Medicine has pioneered award winning work, alongside the Emergency Department, with the development of a single clerking tool and the planned continued development of an Acute Floor model of care which will allow rapid, cross-specialty senior clinical assessments of new patients. We also have highly developed Same Day Emergency Care services.

We are looking to appoint a locum Acute Physician (or General Physician with an interest in Acute Medicine), for 6 months initially, to work with our dynamic team at BSUH NHS Trust. The team currently consists of 10 Acute Physicians with many working across other Specialities, with plans to expand the team in the future. At RSCH the post holder will work in The Emergency Department, Acute Medical Unit and Emergency Ambulatory Care Unit.

The 10 PA post (9DCC and 1 SPA) is open to Acute Physicians and any GIM registered physicians. Applications are welcome from those wishing to work less than full time. Applicants must also be within 6 months of their CCT date.

Closing date 24th September 2020 at 1pm
