This practice believes in the high standards of patient care they offer and this should be always available for all clients. Full access to all diagnostic tools including CT with the support of a very experienced emergency care nurse is available.
The case load is reasonable – some nights you may have no calls at all. When the interesting cases arise you have time, facilities and back up from the rest of the team. You would be part of the inpatient care team and will be involved in the case discussions and development of care plans.
The role is non-residential if you live within 30 minutes of the practice. There is the option of onsite accommodation if you prefer.
We are looking for at least two weeknight duties, one weekend in four and an additional Saturday. However, additional day or evening hours would also be available, bringing this up to a full-time position for those interested for more hours.
