Dorset County Hospital Emergency Department currently has a permanent and a fixed term position on their Specialty Docotor rota. The department has a 6.9 WTE Consultant rota. There are also 8 junior doctors and a well established ENP service within the department.
The middle grade rota has an excellent work/life balance with a sustainable work load. There are opportunities within the rostered commitment to undertake a secondment in a speciality of your choice. Wessex deanery has a development programme for newly appointed SAS doctors which you will be encouraged to attend. Application for specialist registration via CESR is encouraged and we have links with Southampton University Hospitals to provide additional training. Support is available from the consultants in the department with exam practice for anyone interested in sitting the FECM examination.
The Emergency Department is based at Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester. We are a Trauma Unit with a helipad immediately adjacent which receives major trauma and other incoming patients from the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, and HM Coastguard SAR helicopters.
The hospital, opened in 1997, provides an excellent environment for patients and staff. The department sees over 43,000 patients annually with the activity increasing during the summer holiday season. There is excellent support from the other hospital specialties including Anaesthetics, Paediatrics, 24 hour CT, primary PCI in hours and 24/7 Stroke Thrombolysis.
There are opportunities to develop personal clinical interests - for example acute and ambulatory medicine or medical education within our new simulation suite – and admin time is built into the rota.
This position would also involve working down in the new Weymouth Urgent Care Centre on a rotating basis.
West Dorset is well known for its stunning countryside and World Heritage coastline with opportunities for numerous outdoor pursuits. The local state schooling consistently performs at the top of the tables. Quality of life is a recognized priority.
