Paediatric posts will complete a seven person junior rota in the brand new children’s emergency department, which is due to open in late 2018. Initially the department will be a standalone emergency department, with the expectation that the planned co located short stay unit will open early in 2019.

Adult posts will join an 18 person junior rota working in a the Emergency Department of a major trauma centre offering exposure to all aspects of Emergency Medicine. Successful applicants will join a large team of Consultants, Registrars and allied health professionals in providing all aspects of care to undifferentiated patients.
