Job overview

This post affords you to a tremendous opportunity to work within a highly-skilled department of surgery of a very large district general hospital within an NHS Foundation Trust. Delivering a wide range of open, laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures in both acute and elective settings, the department has ample opportunities for team members to gain and improve experience in all clinical environments.

The normal working day consists of covering the General Surgical wards/clinics / theatres from 8am-5pm.

You will be expected to actively participate in the management of the patients on the wards, outpatients, operating theatres and endoscopy. Your skills and acumen will be utilised in the investigation of patients, the formulation and execution of patient care plans as guided by your colleagues on the team. Ward rounds are daily. Ensure that documentation is up to date on a daily basis (Ward round documentation, VTE, antibiotics and Sepsis tool, TTO) and support the “Home For Lunch” campaign.

Your career development is important to us and study leave with a budget for appropriate courses is available in line with the other trainees.

Main duties of the job

  • Your participation in operating theatre and day case sessions is required and recommended. You will be able to carry out operative procedures under consultant supervision and be involved in the perioperative care of patients
  • You will be expected to guide the juniors and request patient investigations with support in your decision making from senior colleagues to ensure excellent patient care and safety.
  • Participation in the registrar on-call rota as either first or second on (See on call requirements for further detail). Two registrars are on call at any one time from 8am till 8pm. Currently this rota attracts a 50% on call  supplement.
  • On call is prospective cover and therefore you will cover other colleagues in their absence
  • Perform duties in the occasion of emergencies and unforeseen circumstances at the request of the appropriate Consultant in consultation, where practicable, with colleagues both senior and junior.
  • You will be supported and expected to participate in mandatory training, audits, research, teaching and service improvement schemes
