The post available will cover the ED & AMU, following the patient from presentation at the front door, through to safe discharge from hospital. The team works holistically to assess and treat their patients, being engaged with the wider multi-disciplinary team for decision making.

The post holder will be expected to work their contracted hours over a 7 day working rota and take part in emergency respiratory on-call. The post is full time though part time and job shares would be considered as long as full service cover is achieved.
The frailty post sits within the inpatient therapy team, and offers an excellent MDT working environment. The team has a breadth of clinical experience and offers support and opportunity for training.
The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital is privileged to be one of only 5 Trusts in the Country to be selected to take part in an exciting improvement initiative. This involves working closely with the Virginia Mason Institute, a hospital in the USA, who develop organisations to have a culture of quality improvement. As a result, the Trust has created the Transforming Care Institute, which is focused around evidence based methodology including coaching and training leaders of all professions and grades in the Lean for Leaders programme. All staff are encouraged to take part in the training opportunities available to develop their leadership skills, pass on this knowledge to others, improve the services we deliver and ultimately provide the best, safest care to our patients.
