Specialty Doctor Emergency Department with Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) training

Want to be part of a dynamic team delivering high quality Emergency Care, in an amazing part of the country?

If so, the Emergency Department at Glan Clwyd Hospital is offering a fantastic opportunity for enthusiastic and committed ED doctors to join, as specialty doctors on a supported CESR programme, in a forward thinking and dynamic team, whilst enjoying a coastal, rural or mountain based lifestyle.

Glan Clwyd Hospital is located in an area of recognised natural beauty with Snowdonia, stunning pristine beaches and enchanting castles all nearby. The local area offers a wide variety of lifestyle and family options, and for those keen to maintain ties further afield, the area has excellent transport links including fast direct trains to London. The cities of Chester, Manchester, and Liverpool are within easy reach and offer international travel connections.

We are looking to appoint a Specialty Doctor that is interesting in their clinical development and looking to undertake the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR). Full support will be given for this programme, which includes educational and clinical supervision, with seconded rotations to Paediatric Emergency Medicine, Acute Medicine, Anaesthetics and Intensive Care. There is also the opportunity for a fifth rotation to a pre-hospital care role working alongside the Emergency Medical Retrieval and Transfer Services (EMRTS).

The department is staffed with a mixture of Consultants, SAS Doctors (24/7 middle grade rota in operation) and juniors. In addition, there is a strong nursing team including ENPs, extended scope physiotherapists and an evolving team of Advanced Nurse Practitioners. Our department is part of a new build Emergency Quadrant, completed just over 5 years ago, future proofed to deal with an annual attendance of 70,000. The Emergency Quadrant includes an acute medical unit, surgical assessment unit, and a co-located GP OOH unit. We last year enhanced our model of care through the development of a Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) unit for ambulatory cases, which is now supported by a full-time acute physician. This joint medical and surgical unit was the first of its kind in Wales, and helped attract national attention for the innovative way in which we had joined these teams, and developed new pathways from ED. We are planning to augment our service with the addition of a frailty unit and a GP admissions area.

With the acute units, the ED now operates as part of an integrated Emergency Care Directorate, which was established just over 12 months ago. This provides us with the opportunity to think differently about how we meet our challenges, and put in place our vision for the future. This is an exciting time to join the team, as we embark upon the development of long-term plans to transform and reconfigure the way in which emergency services are delivered, across the acute floor. You will have the opportunity to work across our directorate, and to develop areas of interest and expertise, to help shape these plans for the future. You will work with a forward-thinking leadership team who place people at the heart of what we do.

In addition, the hospital and health board has excellent academic links with The University of Bangor, Glyndwr University, as well as close links with medical schools in Cardiff, Swansea, Liverpool and Manchester. There is a very active programme of Medical and Dental Education at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. The hospital works closely with Health Education and Improvement Wales to provide high quality education and training, meeting the requirements of these regulatory bodies while maintaining the Health Board’s high standards of patient care. There are excellent opportunities for the right candidate to support the further development of education, training, research and academic links for Emergency Medicine in this area.
