FY3 ED Fellowship Doctor

Job Reference: 188-MT0119-MEDICAL

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
Emergency Medicine
Southampton General Hospital, Southampton
£37,191 pa

Online applications are invited to apply for a foundation year three emergency medicine fellowship doctor commencing asap. This post is fixed term for 12 months

We’re looking for junior doctors that have previously worked in emergency medicine but looking to further develop their skills and experience, as part of our team at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS). This post will allow you to gain new skills or consolidate existing ones so that you have an edge over the competition at national selection.

If you’ve completed your foundation training and aren’t looking to commit to a training programme, are registered with the General Medicine Council (GMC), and have relevant NHS experience, then come and join us at University Hospital Southampton (UHS).

Our ED team is based at Southampton General Hospital (SGH) and sees more than 100,000 new patients per annum.  SGH is a tertiary referral centre and the regional Major Trauma Centre; all specialties are represented on this site with the exception of burns, plastics and spinal cord rehabilitation which are managed at Salisbury District Hospital.

As an F3 you’ll manage patients in all areas of the ED: acute assessment, resuscitation, majors, minors, paediatrics and the clinical decision unit with appropriate senior support.

At UHS, we understand that sometimes a doctor needs time to decompress and think about their future, and we want to support doctors with their transition from F2 to the next steps in their career, whatever those steps may be.  F3 years are becoming more and more popular in the UK, with doctors choosing to take time out of training to travel or hone their skills in order to make their CV more competitive for national selection.  UHS can offer you the structure and support to help you achieve your goals.

During the programme, you’ll be able to develop your professional skills such as audit, quality improvement, teaching, and leadership. You’ll also have opportunities to undertake certificates and diplomas in clinical research, with the option to complete fellowships based in the region.

You’ll also need to demonstrate:

  • responsible and cooperative working
  • initiative and resilience in the face of challenges
  • excellent time management and organisational skills
  • drive and commitment to always developing and improving
  • the ability to prioritise clinical need, maximise safety and minimise risk
  • understanding and anticipation of the needs of patients, visitors and staff

If you’re applying from outside the UK you’ll also require:

  • EU citizens require IELTS 7.5 or above,
  • outside of the EU will require IELTS 7.5 & PLAB

Appointment will be made under local contractual terms and conditions of service for Trust appointed (non-training fellow doctors and dentists) which will be published and available at time of offers.

Grades for Trust appointed (non-training) fellows will be paid a basic salary at a nodal pay point linked to the grade, at the rate set out in the National Medical and Dental pay circular. Basic salary detailed below plus any additional remuneration (as applicable) for hours set out in the doctors work schedule (e.g. additional hours, weekend allowance, and any hours which attract enhanced pay)

Basic Salary – MT03      £37,191            

Please note that GMC registration (with a licence to practice) and right to work in the UK are essential for this role.  Successful applicants will already have GMC registration or will be able to demonstrate they are eligible.  Applicants requiring Tier 2 sponsorship should ensure they meet the Home Office application criteria prior to submitting an application. 

As one of the largest acute teaching Trust’s in England, we can offer learning and development opportunities to help you achieve the career you aspire to. We believe you deserve the best possible surroundings in which to do your job and we want to support you in doing your job to the best of your ability.

 As a Trust, we support flexible working and will consider requests taking into account the needs of the service. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss this at interview. Our LiveWell and inspire programme offers opportunities, support and advice, including smoking cessation services, exercise and activity classes, and support for mental health.

UHS employees are able to access a huge range of NHS discounts, are entitled to a minimum of 35 days paid holiday (pro rata) on appointment, can access on-site nursery facilities (subject to availability), and we offer a generous pension scheme.

UHS is rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey, we were in the top 10 acute trusts for staff engagement and for staff recommending the hospital as a place to work or receive care.
