Consultant Geriatricians & Clinical Director

Specialty: Integrated Medicine & Community Clinical Business Unit

A great opportunity has arisen for proactive geriatricians to join the WHH team.

Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides services to an area of approximately 100 square miles with a population of 309,295 (Halton 118,215 and Warrington 191,080) within Cheshire and Merseyside on two hospital sites.

Thank you for showing an interest in coming to work with us.

The recruitment and retention of a high quality consultant workforce is at the very heart of our strategy to deliver high quality care to our patients and be the employer of choice for all members of the multi-professional team. In the midst of all the current challenges facing the NHS, it is an exciting time to be thinking about joining us.

We are looking to strengthen our Care of Elderly team with Consultants who want to play a leading role in helping us make the transformations for a clinically and financially sustainable future. This can be through a combination of direct clinical care (with or without a sub-specialty interest), management and leadership, quality improvement or research. Education, training and looking after our post-graduate trainees and students is extremely important to us. Essentially, we are looking to align our goals with your career aspirations and see ourselves as being very flexible with job-plans in the important pursuit of a good work-life balance. We invite you to join an environment where each individual will be inspired and empowered to be the best they can be. This is a really exciting time to join the WHH team.
