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 post is permanent and is based at Wexham Park Hospital for a Surgical Core Trainee equivalent doctor covering the care of Urology. The post is not formally recognised for training but there will be access to teaching, courses and educational resources and support. The post holder will be expected to participate in the General surgery on call rota.

The Population and District

East Berkshire has a population of 380,000 and covers the boroughs of Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead and Bracknell, but together with an overlap zone in South Buckinghamshire the true catchment area of the Trust is nearer to 430,000. This is a large and diverse population and includes affluent areas such as Ascot, Windsor and Maidenhead, and also the larger urban area of Slough. The towns of Bracknell, Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor house two-thirds of the total population, the remainder living in rural areas or small towns. Much of the District lies within designated Green Belt areas.


Frimley Health is a leading innovative NHS foundation Trust serving a population of over 800,000 people with a catchment area across six counties. The Trust has three main sites with Frimley Park Hospital, Wexham Park Hospital at Slough and Heatherwood Hospital at Ascot. It also runs diagnostic and outpatient services from Aldershot, Farnham, Fleet, Bracknell, Gerrards Cross, Maidenhead and Windsor.

Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest Acute Trusts in the South East, which became amalgamated in October 2014. The Trust was formed by the acquisition of Heatherwood and Wexham Park by Frimley Park. Frimley Park was the first Trust in the country to be rated as ‘Outstanding’ overall by England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals in September 2014. The vision for the enlarged organisation is to further improve the high quality service and patient care we deliver across all sites. Frimley Park was named hospital of the year for the South of England in 2013. Heatherwood and Wexham Park was awarded a CHKS Top 40 Hospital Awards for the past seven years.

The Trust provides opportunities and training for staff to develop within their chosen fields. In the annual staff survey Frimley Park was rated in the top 20% of acute Trusts by its staff in a number of areas including job satisfaction and motivation.
The Trust provides inpatient services on two main sites in the Slough and Windsor areas and one main site in the Frimley area:

Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot
Wexham Park Hospital in Slough
Frimley Park Hospital in Frimley

The Trust has an excellent record of high quality service delivery. This success has been achieved by excellent relationships between clinical staff, management and colleagues throughout the organisation.

A new 16 bedded Christiansen Unit was opened in June this year. It provides care for patients following surgery and uses the principles of Enhanced Recovery.
