Stepping Hill hospital


10 PA Post

Stepping Hill hospital is committed to delivering excellent emergency care. If you would like to play an instrumental role as we reconfigure, expand and take forwards the delivery of class-leading emergency care we look forward to speaking with you soon. We are a Trauma Unit for adults and children, and a hyper acute stroke centre. We are one of the four specialist hospitals in Greater Manchester for acute surgery.

We recognise the key importance of providing excellent front-line care and we invite you to join us in the next phase of our development as we expand our Consultant team from 9 to 13. Depending on the number of recruits we will move in a staged manner from 1: 8 to 1:10 on calls.

Practicing Emergency Medicine at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust offers:

  • Involvement in the first wave of vanguard sites, integrating health and social care with new work streams both in urgent care at the Trust and in the community
  • New streaming model implemented in October 2017 with co-located primary care, with financial investment to redesign the newly expanded Department further to construct an Urgent Treatment Centre, starting Spring 2018
  • A co-located Children’s ED seeing 17,000 attendances per year and staffed 24/7 by Children’s Nurses, and regional ST3s rotating round for specialist training
  • A Trust-wide Electronic Patient Record beginning in 2018 to improve safety and quality further
  • An adjacent Ambulatory Care Unit, run by a team of 9 Acute Physicians. There is a POD (Acute Physician) between 9am – 7pm in ED. There are established pathways to stream ED patients to ACU
  • An 8-bedded Clinical Decision Unit managed by the ED Consultants for overnight admission of protocolised patients
  • Opportunity for significant collaborative working amongst specialities and exploration of particular interests. For example, our new Short Stay for Older People Unit individualises and improves patient management by encouraging integrated speciality care
  • A regional Stroke Unit Service. Patients are seen in ED by the Stroke Team, suitable patients are thrombolysed and all Stroke patients are admitted to a dedicated Stroke unit, rated best in the country
  • A multi-disciplinary team including an ENP-led minor injury service and an ANP service with 6 trained in post and a further 4 in training. There are 4 ST4+ and 2 ST3 Higher Specialist Trainees.

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust is committed to developing unscheduled care and is working closely with all departments to drive this priority area. There is a new 60-bedded medical assessment unit and a surgical assessment unit adjacent to the Emergency Department. We are a dynamic and creative Emergency Department, committed to building for the future.

We are looking for candidates who have an interest in teaching to help us in our agenda of developing the Advanced Nurse Practitioners (of which we have four being trained at any one time) and our junior doctors. In addition the right candidates will be enthusiastic about collaborating with the acute medical team to establish closer working and develop seamless clinical pathways to deliver for our patients.

There are opportunities for joint working with Salford Royal for interested candidates.

Applicants must hold FRCEM and be on the GMC Specialist Register or within six months of registration at appointment.
