The Department of Plastic Surgery provides an emergency Plastic Surgery service for the local population of Sheffield, and a service for a catchment population of approximately two million across North Trent. This service has close working relationships with Orthopaedic, General and Vascular Surgery and A+E on the Northern General site and receives emergency transfers from surrounding hospitals for more complex trauma. Elective and semi-acute referrals from regional and national sources for sub-specialty conditions are largely received and managed at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Here, close links also exist with the Departments of Dermatology, ENT, OMFS, Neurosciences. Breast Services are managed under Plastic Surgery and consist of a dedicated Breast Service team.
With around 130 staff, we're a friendly, dynamic, and forward-thinking team with close links to several other departments and specialities across the Trust. With a new leadership team and exciting developments within our services, it's a fantastic time to join us and make your mark.
Located on rolling hills and dissected by river valleys, Sheffield is one of the greenest and most wooded cities in Europe. More than a third of the city lies inside the beautiful Peak District National Park, and it is virtually surrounded by open countryside. Its central location and excellent transport links also means it is less than two hours from most major metropolitan areas.
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK's busiest and most successful NHS foundation trusts. This is an exceptional opportunity to join an award winning and internationally recognised team, with a focus on innovation, research and high-quality care, as well as family friendly working, and we are keen to discuss with individuals about how we can support their ambitions.

We will be checking the vaccination status of all new starters so that we can manage individual and environmental risks, and so that we can support those who may be undecided about vaccination.
