Main duties of the job

The newly appointed Consultant Anaesthetist will join an existing establishment of 32 Consultants within North Tees & Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust.

The post holder will be involved in cross-site working between the University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool. The main duties of the role are to provide consultant led anaesthetic care for patients, both in elective and emergency settings and also have sessions in Intensive Care Medicine.

The on-call commitment is 1:12 and is solely for Intensive Care. On-Call for Theatres and Obstetrics is provided by a separate consultant anaesthetist although there is always good communication and teamwork between all resident and non-resident staff on-call. On-calls at the weekend are usually 24-hours with support from juniors in a 3 tier rota.

The new appointee will be expected to attend five fixed clinical sessions with the remaining sessions being allocated to pre and post-operative visits, emergency duty, administration, teaching, non-resident on-call (anaesthesia and critical care) and the weekend trauma list.

The Trust is committed to developing the Clinical Directorate structure and is very keen for the Consultant staff to develop their management potential. The Trust has a development programme to give interested consultants management training to support the pathway to leadership.
