“Come and join us at Pennine Acute Hospital Trust; we’re an innovative team and you could make a real mark in shaping the future of our services. I trust our medical teams to do the right thing and we are developing a model of collective leadership to ensure that staff feel valued and to foster mutual professional respect.” Prof. Matt Makin, Medical Director
What type of roles can we offer you within The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust?
As the Trust serves a population of 800,000, we are able to offer some of the broadest experiences possible in the region across both hospital and community settings in a variety of innovative clinical directorates and specialties that include:
Role options include:-
Trust Grade – Although the post is not recognised by the Post Graduate Dean for the purpose of training, the post holder will gain valuable experience in their specific specialty and will be allocated a Consultant mentor. This has helped Doctors to get onto training programs in the past.
Specialty Doctor – The post holder will complement existing services linked to their specialty. The post holder is expected to provide demonstrable expertise in their chosen field and deliver a high quality independent service or manage complex cases with minimal reference to a Consultant. We have a lead Doctor for this who is linked to the deanery and leads on training and development for Specialty Doctors.
GP with Specialist Interest – The Trust supports a GP with a Special Interest (GPwSI) that supplements their role as a generalist by providing an additional service while still working in the community.
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).
What is it like working for The Trust?
“Working at Pennine I have gained loads of experience, achieved the required competences and enjoyed my working relationship with staff and colleagues.”
We have had a number of experienced Doctors 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 development opportunities do we offer you?
The Trust has enabled Junior Doctors to get necessary exams in order to progress. We have enabled highly committed overseas Doctors to get onto training programs and in some cases progress to becoming Consultants. As an employer we have an extremely ethnically diverse medical workforce with excellent support networks and Teaching Status awarded by The University of Manchester.
We have opportunities for Doctors to get involved with service improvement projects, audit service development, as well as educational events, training & networking.
