Specialty Doctor in Same Day Emergency Care

  • £50,373 - £78,759
  • North West
  • Fixed

Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) is a new and exciting part of Acute Medicine within the NHS. It is focussed on improving patient flow through the hospital. An SDEC Specialty Doctor works to treat patients with acute illnesses who do not need to be admitted to an inpatient bed. This frees up hospital beds for severely acutely unwell patients who need them.

Patients who are treated in SDEC can receive rapid assessment, access to diagnostics, and effective treatment, without needing to be admitted into a hospital bed. The patient may well need ongoing outpatient care and continued work within the community, but SDEC works to ensure patients can return to the comfort of their own homes as soon as possible.

The Job

  • Delivering high-quality acute care to patients presenting to the Same Day Emergency Care Unit.
  • As a doctor in SDEC you will regularly be liaising with the wider Acute Medicine team, Emergency Medicine colleagues, and referrals from GPs. 
  • The contract is for 10 PAs (40 hours per week) with potential for an additional 2 PAs (48 hours per week). You will be expected to participate on a 1:4 weekend on-call rota.
  • You are entitled to 1.5 onsite SPAs per week, this should be used for continued professional development, e.g. training, audits, courses etc.

The Location

The hospital is based in a town in the northwest of England, one of the most desirable regions in the UK. It is just over an hour from both Manchester and Liverpool, so you get the balance of living in a more peaceful location while easily being able to reach the two largest cities in the region. The town is within 1 hour of Manchester International Airport so trips visiting family and friends, or just a relaxing holiday, are easy and accessible.   

The Hospital

  • The hospital is a 500+ bedded hospital which hosts all major specialities on site, so you receive a varied case load.
  • The hospital is part of a University Teaching Trust so there are undergraduate medical students training in the hospital.
  • You will be joining a supportive and welcoming department, which places great focus on onboarding senior international doctors.
