Make a smart choice of what’s important

Work in a friendly environment and live in the beautiful South West of England.

Outstanding schools, lovely countryside and excellent travel links to major cities and airports, as well as the beautiful Jurassic Coastline.

We are looking for a Consultant Intensivist to join our dynamic team at an exciting time. Yeovil Hospital Critical Care is developing and expanding. We are looking to appoint someone with the skills and attributes that will help to be part of this transformation.

The contract will be for 10 PAs per week with an option to increase to 11 Pas subject to mutual agreement. This includes a very favourable 2.5 (10 hours) per week of SPA activity.

  • This current round of recruitment is designed to facilitate a fully split anaesthetic and intensive care on-call rota
  • This will allow for an expansion of our ICU and to satisfy GPICS II criteria, at the same time as enhancing our numbers in critical care to allow for a favourable rota frequency

Why Yeovil Hospital?

  • We have a well-equipped and spacious ICU with over 750 Critical Care admissions per year
  • Yeovil offers the range of clinical work you would expect from a general district hospital
  • As a relatively small Trust it is easy to develop new services and new practices based on your ideas and interests
  • There are opportunities to develop non-clinical interests especially in Education, Mentorship, Leadership and Management
  • Yeovil offer its own private patient unit, covered by an anaesthetic practice group.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants must have dual certification in Intensive Care and one other clinical specialty (or equivalent)

  • Welcome to Yeovil payment
  • A generous relocation package
  • 10 hours of paid time for professional development every week (SPA)
