What type of roles can we offer you within The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust?
The Trust offers varied and exciting opportunities for Consultants delivering quality patient care across both hospital and community settings in a variety of innovative clinical specialities that include:
Consultants are the Trust’s Medical leaders and specialists in their chosen field. Consultants are the Trust’s pinnacle in providing clinical excellence and the teachers of the next generation of doctors. Our organisation has the advantages of serving a large population which allows the development of specialisms, with the friendliness of a district general hospital. This has allowed the Doctors that we have attracted to access opportunities for development that they could not have had within other smaller Trusts or in larger teaching hospitals. We are unique for this in the region.
In addition we have had a number of experienced Consultants come through the Trust from overseas, benefit from opportunities provided by the Trust and then stay in the region. The local house prices and cost of living are low with excellent schools, an international airport and some world famous sporting teams and venues.
What training or qualifications do you need to join us?
Professional roles such as Doctors require specific relevant qualifications at degree level. Registered Doctors are also required to be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) & be on the specialist register for their specialty.
What is it like working for The Trust?
“I’ve worked as a Consultant at Pennine Acute for just under seven years. I chose to come here at an exciting time for paediatric emergency medicine development. The Trust has invested in me as a senior clinician and has made opportunities available to me to pursue local, national and international research interests, to set up humanitarian work in South East Asia – the learning from which is incredibly beneficial to our local population served by the Trust.”
What development opportunities do we offer you?
There is no other organisation in the region which can offer so many opportunities for those keen to develop. We have opportunities to develop as an educator, an appraiser, as a researcher, as a manager, as a leader, as a service developer. We have clinicians who have been able to input into local, regional & national developments in a number of areas.
There are also unique opportunities to develop & deliver specialist services within the Trust due to the size of population we serve (800,000). As a Trust, we have been at the forefront of delivering large scale service re-organisation & have strong links with the universities & local teaching hospitals with Teaching Status awarded by The University of Manchester.
