Clinical Fellow Critical Care

Glan Clwyd Hospital

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, North Wales

We are looking for doctors keen to develop their skills in managing the acutely ill by undertaking a fellowship in critical care. The post would particularly suit doctors with a longer-term interest in acute clinical specialities.

Applications will be considered from those without prior experience in critical care, but we have a considerable amount to offer those with pre-existing experience, and will be very pleased to discuss at an early stage how best to tailor clinical placement to suit individual professional needs (to include experience in anaesthetics, for instance).

Glan Clwyd Hospital is a busy district general hospital. It has been nominated one of three Welsh Cardiac Arrest Centres, incorporates the North Wales Cardiac Centre and the North Wales Cancer Centre, is the host site for specialist head and neck services and will be the major vascular centre for North Wales from April 2019.

Critical Care operates 12 mixed medical and surgical intensive care and high dependency beds, with medical staffing overseen by the Department of Anaesthetics who maintain at least two airway-trained residents on-site 24 hours per day.

Glan Clwyd Hospital is recognised for training in intensive care medicine, and runs a number of courses relevant to this clinical fellowship, including Focussed Intensive Care Echocardiography (FICE) and Basic Assessment and Support in Intensive Care (BASIC). Clinical Fellows are expected to meet regularly with their educational supervisors. Critical Care is actively involved in research and has a good record encouraging trainee involvement in projects leading to national and international presentation.

North Wales is renowned for its areas of outstanding natural beauty and yet the cities of Manchester, Liverpool and Chester are less than an hour away by car.

These Clinical Fellow posts are fixed term until August 2020, extension subject to review
