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.

This is an exciting new role for a junior doctor working alongside a newly created multidisciplinary frailty team.  The frailty team will be responsible for providing comprehensive geriatric assessment, advice and expedite discharges for older people with frailty.  You will work alongside, and be supported by, a consultant geriatrician, frailty nurse consultant and a team of multidisciplinary frailty practitioners.

You will work within the Emergency Department assessing older patients who have experienced a frailty crisis leading to hospital admission.  You will also work within the inpatient liaison team, providing support for older people with frailty not admitted to geriatric medicine wards.

This post would ideally suit someone on an F3 year looking for general medical experience, or someone who has completed CMT training and is looking to specialise in geriatric medicine or a related speciality.  It would also suit someone returning to medicine after a career break or someone wanting to gain further experience of working within the NHS. 

The post is fixed term for 6 months.  The post will be Monday to Friday, 8.30 to 5.30pm.
