There has never been a better time to come and work at University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust was formed on 1 July 2018 to bring together our five hospitals – in Derby, Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth – to provide the highest quality care to patients across southern Derbyshire and south east Staffordshire.

With over 13,000 members of staff you can expect huge variety and new opportunities every day! Our staff go above and beyond and take pride in caring for our patients.

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust is fully committed to promoting inclusion, equality, diversity and human rights in employment and delivery of its services. The Trust is committed to providing an environment where all employees, patients, carers and visitors experience equality of opportunity by means of understanding and appreciating the value of diversity.

As a Trust we promote an inclusive environment and welcome applications from a diverse pool of talent and backgrounds. All individuals are valued and given every opportunity to succeed based on merit.

The Trust actively encourages applications from members of our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. These groups are under-represented in our organisation, and it’s important to us that our workforce reflects the diversity of our communities as much as possible.

Join us and help make a real difference to our Trust.

Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for;

Keen to gain more experience in Medicine with a friendly team that is interested in your development as a doctor before deciding on your next career move? Would you prefer to reduce your out-of-hours commitment and not have to work overnight?

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust is looking for a motivated, enthusiastic doctor to join their Trust. A busy, progressive, forward thinking hospital, rated 'Good' by the CQC in 2019 we would like you to join our consultants and teams working in the Department of Medicine for the Elderly. The post will be based between Samuel Johnson Community Hospital (Lichfield) and Sir Robert Peel Hospital (Tamworth).
Our Trust recognises that investment in the training opportunities that are necessary for your development as a doctor is vital for both our patients and our Trust. We would like to offer you opportunities to build upon the skills you already have, learn new procedures and work in our friendly departments. There are opportunities to teach, perform Quality Improvement Projects and be part of our innovative teams.

The post holder will support medical teams during the busy winter period. You will receive educational and clinical supervision and access to an Eportfolio.

Offering posts suitable for those that have finished their Foundation Programme training, we can also offer positions to those that have completed a 2 week clinical attachment within the past 2 years.

Although not formal training posts and these are not accredited by Health Education East Midlands, we believe we can offer you good opportunities within the Community Hospital with the benefits of being part of a teaching hospital foundation trust.
