Clinical Fellow Trauma

Job Reference: 259-MED00167RLH

Barts Health NHS Trust
Royal London Hospital, London
£31,217- £49,086 per annum

Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.

The Major Trauma Centre at The Royal London Hospital is a leading specialist centre with an international reputation for caring for some of the most seriously injured patients across London and the surrounding counties. It is also the home of London’s Air Ambulance and the hub of the North East London and Essex Trauma Network, the first and largest Trauma Network in the UK, providing trauma care for more than 5 million people.




We are looking for two Trauma Fellows to join our team at the Royal London Hospital helping to provide care for some of the most seriously injured patients. You will work alongside a Trauma Consultant and FY1 to assess, plan and implement treatment programmes in conjunction with our After Trauma team of rehabilitation and trauma co-ordinators. This role offers clinical insight into pioneering pre-hospital and emergency techniques and procedures as well as the opportunity to benefit from regular teaching and simulation events.




The role is unique in that it does not require on-call or night duties, operating on a week on/week off rota.




The Royal London Hospital Trauma Service is linked with the Centre for Trauma Sciences, a world-leading centre of excellence for translational research at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London. World class research is coupled with international education and dissemination programmes to improve care and outcomes of trauma patients worldwide




We are leaders in the field for developing effective, efficient, coordinated disaster response systems. Over the last few decades, our clinical teams across the trauma service have been involved in the management of various major incidents,


the London terror attacks at Borough Market, Westminster Bridge, and Finsbury Park as well as the Grenfell fire disaster. We have developed and delivered action plans for mass casualty events and major incidents. We are a national leader in major incident training, having delivered the largest mass casualty simulation ever delivered in the UK.




We pioneer life-saving techniques and procedures including the use of REBOA (resuscitative endovascular occlusion of the aorta) in controlling blood loss, and ROTEM (rotational thromboelastometry) guided resuscitation in major haemorrhage. Regular simulation events support the development of staff to deliver these techniques.




The Royal London Hospital has a dedicated cohorted trauma ward where patients benefit from safe, compassionate and coordinated care delivered by a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, nurses and therapists. We provide rapid access to a range of specialists and services to support patients who have undergone a traumatic injury. We have an internationally recognised violence reduction service that has delivered significant reductions in violent reoffending and readmission rates. Education and training is a priority with access to internal and external training including TILS, TTL, TTM, ATLS, APLS and DSTS courses. Our partnership with the Centre for Trauma Sciences offers unique opportunities for multi-professional staff to undertake an MSc in Trauma Sciences.
