University Hospitals Bristol & Weston Foundation Trust wishes to appoint a Locum Consultant Physician/Geriatrician at the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI). Applicants wishing to work less than full time or to job share are also encouraged to apply.

The “Front Door” Frailty team at the BRI comprises consultants, an associate specialist, a pharmacist, ACP and ANPs.

It is an exciting time for this new team which was only set up in February 2020. This post will join the team of 8 whole time equivalent consultants in the Department of Medicine for Older People and Stroke Medicine. The post holder will be expected to do some ward rounds on OPAU and occasional cross cover for annual leave on the Care of the Elderly core wards.

The Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) is a major University Hospital and the new consultants will be committed to delivering excellent teaching and training. The BRI is situated in the city centre, adjacent to the regional centres for Paediatrics, Ophthalmology, Oncology and Cardiac Surgery and within 5 minutes walk of the maternity hospital and medical school.
