Job Description

Detailed job description and main responsibilities
This post will help to continue to facilitate the progression of Care of the Elderly services. It is an exciting time to be joining our team - we are ambitious to further develop the model of care for frail elderly patients including our services in areas such as Stroke, Frailty, Orthogeriatrics and Dementia - we are keen to support the successful candidate in specialist interest areas.

At Weston there are 3 WTE Care of the Elderly and Stroke physicians, and on the Bristol Royal Infirmary and South Bristol Community Hospital sites 8.4 WTE. At Weston there is a well-developed front door Geriatric Emergency Medicine Service lead by an Associate Specialist, with Advanced Physiotherapy, nursing and pharmacy input concentrating on admissions avoidance.

The appointment of this position will be part of the 1:11 current consultant on call rota.

The main site for this post at present is Weston General Hospital but as we move to full clinical service integration across UHBW it is anticipated that consultants will have some element of cross-site working to be determined through the job planning process.

We are embarking on a major transformation programme following merger between Weston Health Area with University Hospitals Bristol to change the way we deliver our services through the introduction of clinical best practice across medicine, this has led to significant quality and performance improvements over the last year.
