Come and join the team at North Manchester!

We are looking for a number of dynamic, enthusiastic Consultants to expand our current team of 8 at North Manchester General Hospital and progress our Emergency Care services into our new hospital and beyond. Whether you are seeking a 1st post after completing training or are an established consultant looking for a new challenge NMGH has your ideal role.

Why join the ED team at North Manchester?

North Manchester provides care for some of the most vulnerable patients in the country, with high levels of complex disease, social deprivation and cultural diversity. These combine to make for a clinically challenging and rewarding experience and we were rated good in our most recent CQC inspection.

We are currently undergoing extensive improvement and working on the exciting design phase of our new hospital and emergency department which is due for completion in 2025. This represents an opportunity unique in the North West of England for our team to help design, develop and influence hospital services for the community. We would love you to be part of that. The hospital is part of a longer term plan for the North of the city to be redeveloped with retail, affordable housing, schools, and the provision of jobs and opportunities for the local population.

This is an incredibly exciting time to join us and shape the future of delivery of emergency care to the wonderful people we serve in North Manchester.

Our Emergency department cares for approximately 100,000 children and adults per year. Children are seen in an, audio-visually separate Paediatric Emergency Department with a dedicated paediatric ANP service. We are proud to have developed a bespoke sensory room in the Paediatric area, supporting children with special needs. 2018 saw the opening of a dedicated Same Day Care facility run by Primary Care and ENPs with support from the Emergency consultants. The department is supported by a well-established navigator service facilitating early discharge of patients requiring additional home support, and has 24/7 input from the Mental Health Liaison Team.

We have a well developed team of 6 dynamic ACPs who are all currently progressing with credentialing via RCEM. We also have a 12 person middle grade tier, foundation doctors and GP trainees as well as clinical fellows. We also have medical students from Manchester Medical School.

Out with the ED we have strong links with Medicine, Infectious Diseases (we have onsite the Tertiary regional ID service and are looking to develop roles within EM and ID around Global Health),Women’s Services, Paediatrics (including the only Paediatric Public Health Consultant who works with us), Intensive Care (regional EM/ICM trainees), Orthopaedics and Surgery, as well as Breast services.

We are keen to hear from individuals who want to help develop the ED service and utilise their ideas, skills, enthusiasm and expertise to implement new ways of working and innovative pathways to drive patient care. We would love to hear from you if you are from an EM,EM/PEM, or EM/ICU background.

In return we can offer lots of flexibility around job planning to support work life balance, portfolio working, or out of work interests. We are working towards an annualised self rostering rota as the team grows. NMGH ED are proud of our supportive approach to our team, encouraging and enabling development, research and leadership roles and other individual interests. We are committed to growing a diverse team with varied interest to run alongside their core clinical duties.

NMGH is currently under transition from the North Manchester Care Organisation to Manchester Foundation Trust. From April 2021 we will be a fully-fledged MFT site and the links are in place to support those who may have interests which could be supported by the wider Trust such as Major Trauma, for example.

Manchester is a thriving city, with excellent national and international transport links, and hosts a wide range of internationally recognised sports, leisure, culture and arts facilities.

All applicants must hold FRCEM or equivalent and either be on the Specialist register or within 6 months of achieving a Certificate of Completion of Training at the date of interview.
