Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (SRFT) is an integrated provider of hospital, community and primary care services, including the University Teaching Hospital. The Trust provides a comprehensive range of adult acute services. Our team of 7,000 staff provide local services to the City of Salford and specialist services to Greater Manchester and beyond.
Many of the clinical services with the Trust are regionally, nationally or even internationally renowned (including Pituitary Surgery, Nephrology, Immunology, Neurosurgery, Neonatal Intensive Care, Dermatology, Urology, Interventional Radiology, Intestinal Failure, Pain Management, Orthopaedics and Rheumatology); the opportunities to obtain expertise in a diverse array of different specialties are immense.
The Trust is also a large teaching hospital associated with the University of Manchester Medical School and enjoys a rich academic portfolio affiliated with the University of Manchester, Salford University and Manchester Allied Health Sciences. As a teaching hospital, we provide clinical training for undergraduates attending the University of Manchester and also for postgraduate doctors training in many specialties within the Greater Manchester Deanery.
The Division incorporates cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology, endocrinology, care of the elderly and also the Emergency Admissions Unit (EAU). These departments are well staffed with experienced consultant physicians and are supported by teams of junior doctors at specialist registrar, Core medical training and foundation doctor level. Most junior doctors are in formal deanery supported and approved training posts.
You will work at registrar level in parallel with core medical trainees to support the provision of medical care. Initially, it is anticipated that you will cross cover across all the disciplines described in accordance with the demands at that time. As such, the job will be diverse and varied; you will need to have excellent clinical knowledge and be able to apply that knowledge across a wide range of medical specialties. It is anticipated that, with time, SRFT will develop a training programme that will meet with deanery approved standards of training, but will not be formally supported or sponsored by the deanery.
This training programme will provide excellent in house training at core medical trainee level to those who have not yet had an opportunity to work with the NHS, and will be a platform from which to launch a flourishing career. The post is temporary for 12 months.
