Hampshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Trauma and Orthopaedic department are looking to recruit 3 Orthogeriatric Consultants.
These appointments to Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are an important part of its strategy to remain a preferred provider to local Health Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups across a wide range of hospital services.
These are new appointments and are part of a plan to improve outcomes for our elderly trauma patients, and to consolidate trauma for the Hampshire Hospitals Trust on the Basingstoke site. The successful candidates will work in partnership with a forward looking and enthusiastic Orthopaedic department to deliver comprehensive care to our elderly trauma patients. The roles will include preoperative assessment, liaison with anaesthetic staff, resuscitation, post-operative care and rehabilitation to be delivered as part of a team with the orthopaedic service. Some weekend working will be required, as part of a seven-day service, but we do not anticipate that there will be a requirement for out of hours “on-call” working. There will be no commitment to the general medical on-call rota. The appointments will be supported by middle grade medical staff and orthopaedic middle grades and foundation doctors. There will be opportunities for flexible and part-time working.
