 Applications are invited for two posts in Intensive Care Medicine at one of Europe’s leading hospital sites at Southmead Hospital, Bristol. Applicants who wish to undertake partner specialty work in acute medicine or anaesthesia will be welcome.

North Bristol NHS Trust is the largest Trust in the South-West Region and hosts the busiest Intensive Care Unit in the Region.

It is also the Major Trauma Centre for the Severn Region, the Centre for the Regional Vascular Network, the Bristol Breast Care Centre and The Regional Centre for Neurosciences, Plastics and Burns, Renal and Transplant, Orthopaedics, Urology and Severn Pathology.

North Bristol Trust has also been the host Trust for the Nightingale Hospital, Bristol, and its clinicians have closely collaborated with other Units in its set-up.

The posts will be based in the purpose built 46 bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The postholder will have a dedicated ICU week and on-call responsibility to the ICU only. The successful applicants will join a team of 21 ICU Consultants, and more than 30 ICU trainees. The ICU sits within the wider anaesthetic department of more than 80 Consultants.

The plans also include continued collaboration with its local Units through the newly formed Severn Sub-Regional Network of hospitals, and also supporting the new Retrieve adult critical care transfer service.

Applicants are required to be on the Specialist Register for Intensive Care Medicine, Intensive Care Medicine or be within six months of obtaining it by the interview date.
