We are seeking to recruit a Trust ST1/2 level Doctor in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Princess Royal Hospital Telford, to commence as soon as possible for a period of 6 months intially.
The department provides a busy trauma service involving Paediatric and Adult trauma and a large elective service. Both services are delivered by 11 Consultants, 7 Mid grade Surgeons and 7 Junior Doctors across 2 wards and a dedicated fracture clinic building. The role will include plenty of opportunity for assisting in Theatre, Ward Duties and clinics. The normal working day is 0800 – 1600 hrs, on-call is provided by a full shift rota that has cross cover with ENT at nights and weekends.
Other duties include pre-operative clerking and assessment, liaison with anaesthetists, assisting at operations and post-operative care and management until discharge. The Trust ST1/2 will be expected to assist when necessary.
Trauma care plans for admitted patients are decided at early morning ward rounds while Accident and Emergency referrals are seen within 24 hours at 5 New Fracture Clinics per week.
The on call rota includes prospective cover for study leave. The rota meets the Manpower requirements for the reduction of Junior Doctors Hours.
The Trust ST1/2 is not expected to work in the Accident & Emergency Department, but will commonly be called there by the staff working in the department in order to manipulate simple fractures or admit trauma cases.
Each Consultant takes the role of Educational Supervisor for one of the Junior Doctors.
