Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

Frimley Park Hospital is a regional vascular centre offering emergency and elective vascular services to a population soon to reach 800,000. There are 6 vascular surgeons with 8 vascular lists per week. The hospital performs more vascular operations per annum than the majority of the London hospitals. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is used in the preoperative assessment of high-risk vascular patients, as well as patients undergoing major colorectal surgery.

This Fellowship is aimed at senior trainees who are in possession of the FRCA (or equivalent) or CCT holders seeking specialised training in high risk anaesthesia for vascular surgery. However, post-primary candidates displaying aptitude and interest will be considered. The Fellow will gain experience in the pre-operative assessment and optimisation of high risk vascular patients and gain proficiency in the conduct and interpretation of CPET. They will manage patients for surgery under regional and general anaesthesia, for open and endovascular, elective and emergency procedures.
The Fellow will take part in the trainee 1:8 on call rota, being on call for Obstetrics, Intensive Care Unit or Theatres as required by the department. The trainees are supported by an anaesthetic consultant and an intensive care consultant on call from home.
The post is for 6-12 months commencing in August 2018.
