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. 



This is a unique opportunity to undertake a Clinical Fellow role for up to 3 years which has been designed for you, by you.

You will work in up to six different specialties of your choice across Medical neurosciences, Surgery, Surgical Neurosciences and Acute Medicine that will be tailored to your own personal training needs. You will be allocated a Supervising Consultant who will be responsible for ensuring that your training needs are being met and other benefits are on offer to support your development.

Salford Royal Hospital is a major teaching hospital of the University of Manchester, School of Medicine. The Division of Surgery and Neurosciences delivers care across the breadth of gastro-intestinal, endocrine, neurological and gynaecological surgery, trauma and orthopaedics. SRFT is a tertiary referral centre for gastro-intestinal and urological cancer, neuro-urology & reconstruction, and houses one of two national intestinal failure centres. We work closely with the relevant specialist oncology teams from the Christie Hospital and ‘The Christie @ Salford’ allows delivery of on-site radiotherapy. SRFT is also proud to host the Greater Manchester Neurosciences Centre, one of the largest in the country with some of the best clinical outcomes. We deliver highly complex spinal and neurosurgery as well as being the busiest stroke unit in the country.

The clinicians from all specialties have a strong track record in education and training; locally, regionally and nationally, supporting the professional development of clinical fellows to facilitate their entry into core and specialty training posts. You will have an assigned educational supervisor to support and guide their training in line with their individual development needs.

This new post offers the opportunity for the successful appointee to develop and learn key skills, rotating through a variety different specialities in a large and busy teaching hospital. These include:

• Tertiary stroke centre
• Tertiary neurology centre
• Neurorehabilitation
• Acute Medicine
• Anaesthetics
• Emergency Medicine
• Colorectal
• Oesophago-gastric
• Urology
• Gynaecology
• Orthopaedic surgery
• Spinal surgery
• Neurosurgery

This will be complemented by supervised opportunities to develop their professional portfolios across a range of domains. You will be expected to play a full part in the relevant on call rotas.

This exciting initiative is comprised of an internal rotation across core acute specialities within a single hospital site, facilitating the development of both generic/transferable and specialist skills. The modular nature of the rotation, lasting up to 3 years, gives the trainee the opportunity to select those specialties that provide most value in addressing their specific training needs and career pathways. This post may be of particular interest to those looking ultimately to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility of Speciality Registration or to gain entry into specialty training programmes.

The post is up to 3 years (minimum of 1 year), by arrangement, with potential for extension beyond this if required. Each rotation will typically run for 6 months, but this can be tailored to the specific needs of the trainee (it would be possible to have 12 monthly rotations). We would be happy to discuss with you about other benefits on offer with these roles, including financial support with study and exams.

Whatever your specific training requirements we would like to hear from you and we are completely flexible and can facilitate a training package tailored to meet your needs where the vacancies allow it or offer you suitable alternatives

In line with the Trust’s Single Equality Scheme we welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnic origin, disability, age, gender, sexual preference, 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.
