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.

Have you always wanted to be part of a dynamic, supportive and forward thinking team? Are you looking forward to achieving the work-life balance you have always dreamed of whilst delivering high quality patient care? Come and join the team of Emergency Medicine Consultants at Wexham Park Hospital and achieve just that. Our department was rated Outstanding by the CQC in October 2015, won accolades from the trust board for our teamwork and from NHS England for our FFT Initiative. Our department is highly valued by its service users and something we are all very proud of.

Wexham Park Hospital became part of Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust over 2 year ago. Our Emergency Department currently sees over 115,000 per annum, 25% of whom are managed in our integrated Paediatric ED. One of our successes in improving patient care and flow was the refurbishment 4 years ago of our current ED which created a dedicated Initial Assessment Area, increased majors capacity and introduced a new IT system. This innovative redesign has led to the support in designing a new model of care for the future.

The Trust has approved a £50 million investment for a state-of-the-art emergency wing which is currently in the final planning stage. This new build encompasses new ways of working, with the entire ground floor being dedicated to the new ED, creating single room facilities for the patients and expansion in all areas of ED. There will be an integrated radiology facility including CT scanner and ultrasound facilities dedicated to the diagnostic imaging of emergency patients. The uppers floors are bringing together a new partnership between medicine and surgical assessment units with a multi-disciplinary approach to the model of care which will enhance timely patient diagnosis and flow.

The Consultant body are friendly and energetic. They are committed to working together as a team to ensure that the ED at Wexham Park continues to deliver outstanding, quality, consultant delivered care to their patients and enjoy good working relationships with speciality colleagues and other directorates. As a team we are committed to sharing our knowledge and take an active part in both post/undergraduate teaching including simulation.

The current team of 13 substantive Consultants include those who are sub-specialised in Paediatric Emergency Medicine, ICM, those with a special interest in Pre-hospital & Remote Medical Care and includes a Simulation Fellow.

Our modern annualised rota system allows for greater flexibility within the Consultant team and enables individuals to pursue sub-speciality/other interests whilst achieving maximum work-life balance.
