We are committed to equal opportunities in employment. The policies and practices of the Trust aim to promote an environment that is free from all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination and values the diversity of all people. At the heart of our policy, we seek to treat people fairly, flexibly and with dignity and respect.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for two enthusiastic and motivated senior trainees (ST4 or above) with an interest in leadership, management and quality improvement to join Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust as Chief Registrars.

The Chief Registrar role provides higher specialty trainees with at least 40-50% protected time to develop skills and confidence in leadership, management and quality improvement. Learning that Chief Registrars gain from the Royal College of Physicians’ (RCP’s) bespoke development programme will be put into practice in a supported environment that provides autonomy, flexibility and support to develop projects that address key local challenges and priorities. Projects may include service improvement and development, engagement and morale and education and training and will be tailored to the Chief Registrar’s interests as well as the needs of the Trust. All projects will have patient safety and the delivery of high-quality care at their core.


The Chief Registrar role will suit trainees who:

  • Want to learn about leadership and gain senior leadership experience
  • Are comfortable working in uncertain environments and across traditional boundaries
  • Relish the opportunity to develop their own ideas and initiatives
  • Are committed to and passionate about improving the NHS.


The Chief Registrars will be mentored by a senior clinical leader within the Trust and will gain a unique insight into leadership and management processes, as well as deeper knowledge of the NHS. They will benefit from a flexible training model that will enable them to develop a portfolio of experience and skills that will benefit future consultant posts and leadership roles and build a profile that will mark them out as a future clinical leader.


The Chief Registrars will have the opportunity to attend modules delivered as part of the RCP’s bespoke development programme at either RCP North or RCP London. These will cover, for example, change management, team culture and development, quality improvement, leadership, influencing and personal resilience.


Applications are open to senior trainees:

  • At ST4 level or above
  • Working full time or less-than-full-time
  • Who have a national training number
  • Who have full GMC registration.


This is a fixed-term role for minimum of 12 months. The role can be undertaken in programme or out of programme (training or experience).


In the first instance, applications must be discussed with your educational supervisor and training programme director (TPD), and permission to apply must be granted by the TPD.
