There are lots of good reasons to choose to come and work at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust. A dynamic integrated Trust with integrity and vision. Exactly the same qualities you’ll see in yourself. Stockport NHS Foundation Trust aims to be the organisation of choice for patients and an employer of choice for staff. In order to continually improve all aspects of our patient experience, we rely upon having a highly skilled, motivated, diverse, productive and patient focused workforce.

Stockport Foundation Trust is one of four ‘specialist’ hospital sites in Greater Manchester. Being a ‘specialist’ hospital will enhance our general surgery, anaesthetics, critical care and emergency medicine for the benefit of people in Stockport, High Peak, Cheshire and across Greater Manchester.

Our values ‘Quality and Safety, Communication, Service’ are at the heart of everything we do and come from our ‘Your Health. Our Priority’ promise. Every day they drive the behaviour and actions for every person in our organisation.

Coaching Academy 

Our coaching academy is a vehicle for developing a coaching culture throughout the Trust to help develop, engage, motivate and care for our staff to deliver better patient care. It will support us to consistently have a “culture of caring” which both our staff and patients will experience.

Greater Manchester Continuous Service Commitment

As well as recognising previous NHS service, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust is a member of the Greater Manchester Continuous Service Commitment. If you are currently employed by Greater Manchester Local Authority, Combined Authority, GMFRS, TfGM as well as other public service organisations, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust will recognise your previous service for sickness and maternity/paternity/adoption entitlement and also for annual leave purposes (providing there has been no break in service).  If you currently work for one of the above organisations and successfully apply for a post with Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, please ensure the Recruitment team are aware so that this service is reflected in your contract of employment.

Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine

We are looking for a proactive, forward thinking and dynamic individual to join our front door team. The acute medicine team of consultants is a young, proactive team who has forged close links with the emergency department, general medical specialties, primary care, diagnostics and critical care teams.

The acute medicine team is located in a brand new 59 bed acute medical unit co-located with the ambulatory care unit and emergency department, and next door to the surgical assessment unit and critical care units.

In July 2015 we were chosen as one of four ‘specialist’ hospital sites in Manchester, following a unanimous decision by the 12 Greater Manchester clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) as part of the Healthier Together programme.

A programme of reform of unscheduled care in the Trust and across Greater Manchester is underway which includes investment in and expansion of the medical specialties to complement the recent rapid expansion of Acute Medicine.

Stockport constitutes one of ten boroughs in Greater Manchester and its proximity to the Manchester Medical School has enabled the development of close working relationships with various University Departments. The general environment in Stockport and the surrounding countryside is a pleasant one, with the Cheshire Plain to the South West and the High Peak of Derbyshire to the South East. There are numerous pleasant residential areas and facilities for all types of education are good.

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and promote safeguarding by implementing the Trust’s policies and procedures, acting promptly on concerns, communicating effectively and sharing information appropriately.  

If successful this vacancy will require an enhanced DBS check at a cost of £43.50. This cost will be deducted from your first Trust salary.

In addition to this it will be a condition of your employment that you will join the DBS update service and pay the annual subscription fee of £13.

The successful applicant will be issued with a contract which reflects the potential requirement for out of hours or weekend working. Any requirement to work out of hours is detailed in the job advert / job description for this post and will be discussed fully with the successful applicant on appointment. This is a deviation from the national standard consultant contract.
