Job Reference: 359-MSD0645

Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust
All Specialties
Maidstone Hospital & Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Maidstone
£0 pa

Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells are looking to recruit doctors to enhance our already successful medical staff bank.

This is in response to the Covid19 outbreak.

We are looking for doctors of all grades and experience to work on an ad-hoc basis to help provide consistent, high level patient care and to assist with the continuity of care that the Trust provides at this difficult time.

We are looking to enrich our Medical Bank in all areas

Please confirm your specialist interest in the Supporting Information section of your application.

The Trust operates over two main sites. Maidstone Hospital is a modern 410 bed hospital situated at the Western edge of Maidstone, two miles from junction 5 of the M20. It provides general hospital services to a catchment population of around 220,000. The Tunbridge Wells Hospital is located in Pembury adjacent to the A21. After a three year building programme, Tunbridge Wells now has a superb new hospital. Costing £230 million, it is the first NHS hospital where all main wards are comprised entirely of single en-suite bedrooms. These enable patients to have greater privacy, get a better night's sleep and reduce the chances of infection. Most rooms have plenty of natural daylight and views over the surrounding forest which further aid a good recovery.
