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. 


You will join our multidisciplinary team within the Intensive Care Unit at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

The post is open to anaesthetists, physicians or emergency medicine doctors but previous experience of intensive care medicine and airway skills are essential.

This busy tertiary referral neuroscience/general adult ICU, has around 1000 admissions a year to 18 level 3 beds. In addition the Trust has major trauma centre status.

Fifteen consultants provide a consultant led service to the patients on the ICU. The consultant body includes intensivists with backgrounds in anaesthesia, respiratory medicine, academia, emergency medicine and acute medicine. They are supported by experienced and highly skilled nursing staff, and a multi-disciplinary team of trainee doctors.

The junior trainee medical staff compliment includes total of 8 trainees from Foundation programmes, ACCS programmes and anaesthesia parent specialties. In addition, the unit provides training for up to 9 more senior trainees including advanced ICM posts.

The ICU moved to a new state of the art purpose built facility in September 2011.

The job would afford you clinical exposure to a broad case mix including neuroscience, trauma, intestinal failure and renal failure patients as well as a general ICU case mix.

We have a strong history of successfully supporting fellows through higher professional examinations and attainment of substantive posts.

There would be the opportunity to gain skills and accreditation in US including ECHO.

There would also be opportunity to gain skills equivalent to those obtained during a special skills year in one of the following areas:
Quality Improvement
Neurointensive Care
Transfer Medicine

Alternatively, there would be the opportunity to develop educational skills, alongside supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate trainees.

This position would allow ample opportunities to attend local and regional educational activities in both intensive care medicine and parent specialty.

The ICU runs a fully accredited training programme which has an excellent local reputation. The successful candidates would be expected to participate in the programme and ongoing appraisal.

There would also be opportunity to assist with the quality improvement work that is undertaken within the department.

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.
