Come and join us in Bangor for a fabulous six or twelve months’ Emergency Medicine experience in a rural ED, with a fantastic reputation for junior doctor training. Please note that these posts are not the same as the Clinical Fellow Posts with PHEM, Global EM and Mountain Medicine options – more information can be found on our unofficial website.

Situated in North Wales between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Isle of Anglesey, this is also a fabulous place to live. We’re only three hours from London by train, or an hour from Chester/M6 by car, but life here is a world away from the big city – even our trauma is unique, with many more mountain casualties and cow/bull attacks than stabbings and shootings!

We are happy to welcome doctors who wish to just have a taster of EM prior to doing something else, or those committed to a career in the specialty. Our team consists of 12 Clinical Fellow-tier doctors (3 x F2, 1 x ACCS, 3 x GPST and 5 x Junior Clinical Fellows) plus an Academic F2; ten Senior Clinical Fellows in EM/PHEM; 1 EM HST trainee; seven Consultants; and two Associate Specialists. We also have a team of fantastic ENPs.

This post is identical in every way to our deanery training posts: there’s protected training every Thursday afternoon within the ED, plus a variety of other junior doctor tutorials and teaching sessions. You will also have an educational supervisor to help you achieve your career aims. Plus, we can offer you up to 11 days personal development time to attend suitable training opportunities. This is in addition to study leave which comes with a budget to fund your choice of life support course.

The medical education post offers 50% personal development time devoted to medical education: teaching medical students and other staff in the Emergency Department and in formal teaching and simulation sessions. There is also the opportunity to study for a funded PGCert in Medical Education at Bangor University.

You will have excellent shop-floor support from enthusiastic senior and middle grade doctors, and the rota is carefully designed to minimise fatigue, with night shifts being a maximum of four shifts in a row. For doctors who can commit to a 12 month post we can offer less than full time working either as annualised hours (perfect if you want to go off on expeditions) or a LTFT weekly rota (to combine medicine with another passion or just optimise your life work balance).

There is the opportunity to complete an audit, and we specialise in helping both junior doctors and medical students achieve their first publications, with dozens of conference posters produced by our ED team.

If a dynamic, friendly department sounds like your cup of tea do get in touch for a chat!
