Join us and be part of something bigger.

We have paved the way for excellence in Integrated Care and in July 2016 took the  pioneering step to form one of the first Integrated Care Organisations.  We now provide adult social care services alongside our established healthcare services, which has given us the chance to develop better, more joined up ways of working that deliver improved outcomes for the local community. 


Applications are invited for a candidate to work within the department of Ageing and Complex Medicine in the Division of Salford Health Care for a 12 month period starting in August 2018.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a trainee geriatrician to develop as a medical educator. The post holder will work with a consultant with an interest in medical education to deliver teaching to undergraduate medical students in ageing and complex health. They would be supported to deliver small group teaching and bedside teaching as well as gaining an insight into curriculum design and implementation. There will also be opportunities to develop new educational material in this area and to participate in medical education research.

You will have geriatric medicine experience (preferably in a training post in geriatric medicine) who are keen to develop their clinical education skills in a busy teaching hospital. Applicant’s experience should reflect their suitability to work in this post. The successful candidate must demonstrate a commitment to providing high quality education for our undergraduates in ageing and complex medicine. A successful candidate will be able to demonstrate previous experience and enthusiasm in education and teaching. It is anticipated that approximately 80% of the role will involve direct teaching commitments.

You would also provide some clinical cover within ageing and complex medicine. They should be able to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team and demonstrate commitment and enthusiasm for working with older adults in a variety of settings. The role does not entail any regular commitment to the on-call rota or out of hours working.

The directorate currently comprises:

  • 3 Acute Ageing and Complex Medicine (ACM) Wards
  • Speciality Falls, Parkinson’s Disease in the Elderly and Syncope/Epilepsy outpatient clinics
  • Frailty Zone on the Emergency Assessment Unit (EAU)
  • Emergency Department in-reach
  • Community Services
  • Ortho-geriatric Service
  • General Surgery and Trauma Liaison Services

You will be supported in their development by a team of NHS consultants to deliver high quality services across General Medicine. This provides an exciting range of opportunities to consolidate and develop your skills within a forward-thinking and innovative division.

You will work under the direction of a consultant within Ageing and Complex Medicine services and support all aspects of acute inpatient care.   This will include appropriate investigation, treatment and discharge planning, communication with relatives and the multidisciplinary team, and end of life care where appropriate. There will be an opportunity to attend outpatient clinics and see patients in the frailty zone and emergency department with Consultant supervision.

Salford Royal Foundation Trust is a large university teaching hospital with over 7,000 staff. It is a centre of excellence providing specialist and tertiary services on a sub-regional, regional and supra-regional basis.

You should have at least two years’ experience following Foundation training and have significant experience in geriatric medicine (preferably currently in a training post). Suitability to work on a middle grade rota is desirable but not essential and will be further addressed at interview.

This post has been approved as eligible for an out of programme experience by HENW subject to final approval by the training programme director.

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, nationality, religion, marital status, social back ground or trade union membership. However, as members of ethnicity minority  groups and individuals with disabilities are currently under-represented at this level of post, we would encourage applications from members of these groups.  Appointment will be based on merit alone.
