We are seeking a Consultant Geriatrician, who is dedicated and passionate in helping us to provide outstanding and exemplary care for older, frail patients in the South West.
Following development of our Frailty strategy, this will be a very exciting time to work within the Medicine for Older People team at North Bristol, particularly if you wish to enhance and develop your skills and career.

The post holder will work with nine other Medicine for Older People consultants in providing a range of services for older people with complex needs, and so you will have a supportive and friendly team around you, providing plenty of scope for you to showcase your skills and to learn more.
This is also a great opportunity for you to live and work in Bristol; a city in the hills of South West England, with its own thriving art, music and cultural scene hosting a number of exciting annual festivals such as the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate extensive experience in Medicine for Older People and must be in possession of CCT in General Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine.
