ACCS - Acute Medicine (CT1) Specialty Registrar

Job Reference: J94-A-19-4014

Employer:
Health Education England London and the South East
Location:
London
Salary:
£30,302 - £47,132

The London Shared Service provides Health Education North Central and East London, Health Education North West London and Health Education South London with specialty recruitment, clinician assessment, revalidation and other support services. We help to improve the quality of patient care by ensuring the supply of healthcare professionals who are educated, trained and motivated to play their part in a first class modern health service.


Applications are invited for vacancies in the acute care common stem [acute medicine] (ACCS-AM) programme at CT1-level across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with start dates from Wednesday 7 August 2019. The recruitment process for ACCS-AM is combined with that for internal medicine training (IMT) and guidance about the process can be found on the IMT Recruitment website. Candidates wishing to apply to both programmes need only complete and submit one application form, and attend one interview, in total.

 

Successful completion of this programme will lead to meeting the competence requirements for higher training at ST3 level in the majority of medical specialties.

 

This is the second round of nationally-coordinated recruitment to posts on 2019 IMT programmes; referred to as ‘Round 2’. Round 2 is wholly independent of the first round (held in late 2018/early 2019); thus candidates can apply in Round 2 regardless of whether or not they applied in the first round.

 

The application window opens on Tuesday 26 February 2019 at 10.00am (UK time) and closes on Thursday 14 March 2019 at 4.00pm (UK time). You will not be able to submit your application after this time. Please ensure that you have completed all the relevant sections of the application form as missing information will deem your application incomplete and it will not be considered.

 

You must apply via the online Oriel recruitment system; this can be accessed from the link provided. Registration is available to applicants now.

 

The qualifications and professional registration requirements plus other eligibility criteria can be found in the person specification. The person specification for this specialty is available from the Specialty Training website; accessed from the link provided.

 

Post number information will be published to the IMT Recruitment website as it is confirmed by each region. In round 2, it is likely that not all regions will have programmes available and the number available is difficult to predict until round 1 has been completed; in particular it is likely that there will be very few, if any, ACCS-AM programmes available. The website of each region has information about their training programme.

 

Recruitment in this round will be managed by the Physician Specialty Recruitment Office (PSRO), who will coordinate all longlisting and shortlisting of applications and make offers on behalf of all regions. Interviews will be held in one of five regional centres, in Cardiff, Leicester, London, Newcastle and Southampton.

 

Candidates will not need to give preferences of particular regions or posts at the time of application. Those candidates who subsequently progress to interview will be invited to give preferences around mid to late-April.

 

It is stipulated in the person specification that certain criteria must be completed by the ‘intended start date’. In this round this date is 7 August 2019. If you are not able to complete the outstanding area by this date your application will not be able to progress.

 

An applicants’ guide is available for download from the IMT Recruitment website. This guide, alongside the website content, should address most queries.

Eligibility criteria for recruitment to specialty training 2019 – immigration requirements

You are eligible to be considered for IMT/ACCS-AM training in this round if:

  • You are a UK or EEA national
  • You are a non-UK or non-EEA national and your immigration status allows you to work without restriction in the UK. For example, if you have Tier 1 or dependent status, and no restriction against working as a doctor or dentist in training
  • You are non-UK or non-EEA national who has limited leave to remain in the UK and do not fall into one of the above categories. You will require Tier 2 sponsorship and will be subject to the RLMT
  • You are a non-UK or non-EEA national, you graduated from a UK medical or dental school, your immigration status currently entitles you to work in the Foundation Programme and where you would have previously been eligible for Tier 1 (PSW). You will need to apply for Tier 2 sponsorship, but you will be exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) in this instance.

 

Applicants who are subject to the RLMT may only be considered if there is no suitable UK or EEA national candidate for the post.

 

Evidence of immigration status should normally consist of a biometric residence card, date stamped passport, and accompanying letter from the Home Office. Please visit their website for more information.

 

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship (formerly a Work Permit)

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. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

 

Please see the Applicant Handbook on the Specialty Training website for further information.
