University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust is the largest hospital in the South West Peninsula. It is a major trauma centre and hosts tertiary services for neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery, renal transplantation, bone marrow transplantation, neonatal intensive care, and prosthetic joint revision surgery. There is ample scope for development of specialist interests within infection management, and the trust has an active research department. The state of the art microbiology department is based in purpose built laboratories and offers a wide range of diagnostic testing, and a full SARS-CoV-2 testing service (PCR and antibody). The locality has seen low numbers of COVID-19 cases throughout this pandemic, and a wide variety of clinical microbiology work continues.

New ways of working arising from the COVID19 pandemic have shown that there is flexibility for working from home when clinical commitments allow, and the 10PA jobplan (including 1:7 on-call) is usually worked across 4 weekdays.

Plymouth offers numerous opportunities for outdoor activities and a vibrant urban culture, lying on the beautiful natural harbour that is Plymouth Sound with rugged Dartmoor to the north and surrounded by the unspoilt beaches of Cornwall and South Devon.
