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.

F3 Junior Clinical Fellows in Emergency Medicine

We’re expanding our team in Wexham Park Hospital’s Emergency Department and we’re looking for enthusiastic and driven post-F2 doctors with a genuine interest in acute care to join us.

We know that F3 jobs have become a vital step along the career path for most junior doctors, so we don’t just expect relentless service provision –we will help you with your personal and professional development so you’re well prepared for the next stage in your career.

Whatever your specialty interests, an F3 post in emergency medicine will give you skills, knowledge and experience that will stay with you for the rest of your career. We see over 125000 patients a year at Wexham Park with conditions from a cough to cardiac arrest and toothache to major trauma so each shift will be different and days at work are never boring.

To make your working life easier, we’ve got a modern, spacious department with 4 resuscitation bays, 26 majors cubicles, a 10 bedded Emergency Department Decisions Unit and a minor injuries unit. Our separate paediatric area is staffed with highly experienced children’s nurses and deals with over 100 children per day. Our large initial assessment area ensures patients are prioritised early with investigations requested, and there is a 24 hour phlebotomy service. Our nurses are highly skilled, experienced, friendly and used to supporting junior doctors. We’re really proud that the department was recently rated Outstanding by the CQC.

Such a high amount of activity and variety makes our ED a great learning environment. There’s plenty of support around from our consultants and registrars with ample opportunity for Supervised Learning Events, case discussions and supervised procedures. We have bi-weekly half-day teaching sessions for our junior tier and these posts come with study leave and budget.

As well as a consultant educational supervisor, you’ll be allocated a middle grade mentor to give you personalised career development support. We can help with specialty applications, tailoring your CV, career advice and exam preparation. If you want to experience another specialty we can help you arrange taster days, and there are virtually unlimited opportunities for audit, quality improvement, management and teaching activities including within our QuEST simulation service. We give you 2 hours per week career development time, which can be tailored to your needs.

It’d be great to have you with us, but subject to availability we can combine these posts with 5-6 months in another similar post within Frimley Health, either in the ED at Frimley Park Hospital or another specialty at Wexham Park. We can offer flexible start dates.

You must have minimum of 4-6 Months of ED SHO experience in the UK.

We require you to have completed Advanced life support training as this is mandatory (or equivalent)
