At University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH and stay at UCLH because our success starts with you. All of our staff have been involved in developing our values. We believe that they make UCLH a better place for patients and staff alike.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Many of our services operate from new or newly refurbished facilities including the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre which opened in 2012. So, why join UCLH…?

  • We have a reputation as a centre of clinical excellence
  • Our hospitals are in great central London locations
  • We have new facilities and state-of-the-art medical technology
  • We have a wide range of career opportunities

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

We have three questions for you:

1. Are you a dynamic, motivated middle-grade emergency physician seeking a broad experience of inner-city emergency medicine at senior middle grade (ST4+) level?

2. Can you demonstrate previous UK emergency medicine experience and ACCS curriculum competencies?

3. Does your work consistently uphold our Trust values of safety, kindness, teamwork, and improving?

If you answered “yes to all the above, then we want your contribution to our dedicated, friendly, team. Come to UCLH and help us deliver excellent emergency and urgent care.

Here at UCLH, you will benefit from:

* a great breadth of clinical experience in one of London’s busiest emergency departments, seeing 130,000 patients per year with a wide range of pathology;

* treating a hugely diverse local population, including everyone from students to workers at multinational corporations, from tourists to residents of the most deprived areas of north London, and from late-night revellers to elderly nursing home residents;

* working in a trauma unit within the North East London & Essex Trauma Network, which incorporates the Royal London Hospital and the HEMS helicopter service, providing opportunities for first-class trauma care training;

* experience of paediatric emergency medicine as well as the full spectrum of adult emergency medicine and resuscitation;

* treating minor injuries and minor illness in our urgent treatment centre;

* proactive clinical supervision within the department, sixteen hours a day, by our experienced and friendly consultants;

* working alongside clinical colleagues who are world-leaders in their respective fields, attracting tertiary specialist cases from all over the UK;

* many opportunities to participate in teaching, audit and research – with very close links to UCL medical school and a regular programme of simulation training taking place within the department.

* Active support with regards to Article 14

We are offering a fixed term appointment, starting as soon as possible, initially for 6 months but with potential to extend this. This post is currently banded at 1A and attracts the full inner London weighting. We know that doctors have lives outside of work, so we are positive about flexible working: talk to us if this is something you would like to consider.


You must have (essential):

* full registration with the GMC;
* at least four years’ post-graduation clinical experience;
* at least one year’s experience in adult & paediatric emergency up-to-date certification in at least two out of ALS, ATLS, APLS, or ETC.

You should preferably also have (desirable):

* work-based assessments in at least five ACCS “major presentations” and at least eight “acute presentations”;
* MRCEM, MRCP, MRCS, MRCGP, or primary FRCA.

Please see the person specification for full eligibility criteria.
More about our training opportunities

We will give you:

* an educational supervisor;
* two hours of protected teaching time per week;
* paid time away from the shop floor for educational and administrative projects such as audit and quality improvement;
* regular, consultant-led, in-situ simulation training dealing with adult and paediatric emergency presentations;
* opportunities for paid secondments into other acute specialties, available for suitable candidates after at least 12 months’ service, subject to staffing requirements.

Many of our senior middle grades at UCLH have chosen to stay with us for three years or more and are sitting FRCEM examinations. We believe this serves as evidence that our emergency department senior team is friendly, supportive, and dedicated to providing great opportunities for education and professional development.
