Consultant Anaesthetist (x2)

Job Reference: 415-MP376-18

Northern Devon Healthcare Trust
£77,913 to £105,042 pa

Consultant Anaesthetist (two)

Fancy a change of scenery?

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is expanding its Anaesthesia and Critical Care Services to a total of 28 consultants across anaesthesia and critical care within the next four years (nominally 18 general anaesthetists and 10 critical care).

Applications are currently invited for two Consultant Anaesthetist posts at North Devon District Hospital:

  • Post one – Major colorectal, urology and perioperative medicine
  • Post two – Major orthopaedics and trauma

Additional appointments may be made on the day dependent upon the individual’s skill set and their performance during the application process.

These posts are offered on a whole-time basis (10PA) but suitably-qualified applicants who are unable to work full-time will be considered.

The successful applicants will join our current team of 20 consultants who are supported by a team of experienced associate specialists, specialty grades, fellows, trust doctors, ACCS, core trainees and admin staff to provide comprehensive anaesthesia and critical care services for the population of North Devon.

Our clinicians maintain a broad spectrum of clinical skills and have a work-life balance like nowhere else. The acute hospital is big enough to provide real opportunities for leadership and innovation, yet small enough to make prompt, effective change a reality. Outside of work, you’ll find our staff out surfing, walking, cycling and generally enjoying the amazing scenery that Devon has to offer. Beautiful beaches are just a stone’s throw away from the hospital.

We perform highly against clinical standards, have a proven track record of staff satisfaction and meet our financial targets, so our doctors can focus on giving great care to patients.

So if you would like to combine an outdoor life in North Devon with a challenging clinical career, come and join us (see the video link ‘What’s it like working at NDHT’ for more details.)

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
