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 NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest acute Trusts in the South East which is renowned for its excellent clinical care and friendly atmosphere. The Frimley Park site anaesthetic department has 46 consultant anaesthetists. Frimley Park Hospital has one of the largest trauma and orthopaedic departments in South East England. There are 27 orthopaedic consultants with over 40 elective lists per week.

This Fellowship is aimed at senior trainees who are in possession of the FRCA (or equivalent) or CCT holders seeking specialised training in regional anaesthesia. The Fellowship can be adapted to support the Fellow in developing specific interests. The post is for 6-12 months commencing August 2018 and offers the level and breadth of experience necessary for gaining approval for training, but this would need to be applied for prospectively by the successful candidate, if so desired. The current Fellow has performed 60 peripheral nerve blocks in the initial 10 weeks of her post, including: upper and lower limb blocks; serratus anterior and erector spinae plane blocks; femoral nerve sheath catheters; and WALANT technique.

Candidates will be allocated to dedicated regional lists during daytime and participate in the on-call rota working in obstetrics, intensive care or theatres. Once competent, they will have the opportunity to run regional block lists independently.

This Fellowship has run successfully for the past 5 years. In addition to teaching clinical regional anaesthesia, we create opportunities for motivated individuals to enhance their professional development. Previous achievements include:

• Oral and poster presentation at ESRA annual congress, RAUK, National Patient Safety Congress
• Publication of EDRA part 1 revision book
• Teaching as a member of faculty at international, national and local courses
• Educational visit to Canada to learn WALANT technique
• Development of a local rectus sheath catheter service

The post is for 6-12 months commencing August 2018.
