Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a forward looking and innovative place to work and is committed to Values Based Collaborative Leadership and being a ‘Great Place to Work’.
Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was established on 1st December 2007. The Trust gained Teaching Hospital status and became Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2010. In April 2012 the Trust merged with community health services from NHS Blackpool and NHS North Lancashire as part of the Transformation of Patient Pathways Programme. We are now a Vanguard site with Extensive Care Services provided for the complex elderly population within Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
The Trust serves a population of approximately 440,000 residents across Blackpool, Fylde, Wyre, Lancashire and South Cumbria and the North of England. It comprises Blackpool Victoria Hospital which is a large busy acute hospital and two smaller community hospitals – Clifton Hospital and Fleetwood Hospital and the National Artificial Eye Service. The Trust is also responsible for the provision of Community services such as District Nursing and Midwifery to a large geographical area, extending from Lytham St Annes in the South to Morecambe and Carnforth in the North. The Trust provides Tertiary haematology services for Lancashire and South Cumbria and is the site of the Lancashire Cardiac Centre which provides comprehensive cardiology and cardiothoracic surgical services for the adult population of Lancashire and South Cumbria (around 1.6 million people).
The Trust is highly active in clinical research. We are the highest recruiting centre for many clinical trials for commercial and non-commercial sponsors; and have recruited the first global, European and UK patients across a number of specialities. The Clinical Research Centre is the dedicated facility for use by researchers, where patients can participate in research. We have high calibre staff with long track records of being research active, staff who are enthusiastic to get involved in research for the first time and staff who support research through their role.
We are looking for a Consultant Physician to join our expanding team at Blackpool Victoria. Successful candidates will join a dedicated team of Acute Physicians in a busy fast flow environment incorporating the Acute Medical Unit, Short Stay Unit and Ambulatory Emergency Care.
