Senior Trauma Fellow in Adult Critical Care

Minimum ST3-4 level or equivalent

August 2019 for 6 months (extendable)

St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of 4 major trauma units in London and also one of the largest and busiest teaching hospitals in the United Kingdom, with around 1100 beds and 60 adult critical care beds. St George’s Hospital is the main teaching hospital in the western sector of South London and as such supports an extensive training programme for junior doctors.

We are looking to recruit a dynamic and committed individual to join our Critical Care and Major Trauma Teams at St George’s.

This is an exciting post that has been developed to enable us to improve the quality of our trauma care and to allow doctors from an Anaesthesia, Critical Care background that have an interest in trauma to gain further experience in complex major trauma management. This post would be ideally suited to someone who has completed core training in Anaesthetics, ACCS or Emergency Medicine and has embarked or is about to embark on specialty training and has a minimum of six months experience in both Anaesthesia and Intensive Care or who is a post-CCT fellow.

The successful candidate will be based on the General Intensive Care Unit and will be part of the on-call rota. They will be the critical care liaison with the major trauma MDT and attend the daily trauma meeting. There will be opportunities to be part of the major trauma team in the ED and follow cases through to theatre and critical care. They will be involved in trauma research, quality improvement and governance. As this is a relatively new post, there will be opportunity for the successful candidate to pursue their individual trauma related interest.

The post is available from August 2019 for a period of 6 months with the possibility of extension to 1 year. Applicants should ideally have registrar level experience in Intensive Care Medicine and be ready to work at this level.

Duties and responsibilities will be commensurate with the individual candidate’s experience, but are overseen by Consultant Intensivists at all times. There is a robust teaching programme in place. The Critical Care Directorate is internationally recognised for its research and several consultants hold leadership positions in national and international societies.

We welcome applications from overseas.
