Applications are invited for a Speciality Doctor to join the Medicine for the Elderly Teams across Tayside.
Tayside has a diverse Geriatric model covering hospital services from Acute Frailty Team, at front door of Medical admissions, Acute Geriatrics, orthogeriatrics, and step-down MFE Units like Tay Ward in Perth, Royal Victoria in Dundee and our community hospitals throughout the region. We have a strong community presence and support Enhanced Community Support with regular MDT GP practise based MDT meetings, Polypharmacy initiatives and a newly developed Dundee enhanced community Support rapid Assessment (DECSA) model which is more aligned to hospital at home. The candidate has the potential to work in any part of service that they may have interest in.
Medicine for the Elderly is Tayside’s largest employer of Speciality Doctors, and our team have a reputation for providing opportunities and career development in this career grade.
The post is ideal for General Practitioners with an interest in Older People, and working with MFE can be linked in with GP practise work. The post is also ideal for doctors looking for time away from training or a non-training career, where development, training and opportunities provided by these posts have many positives.
The candidate will have completed at least four years full time postgraduate training (or equivalent gained on a part time or flexible basis) at least two of which should be in a specialty training programme in relevant specialty or shall have equivalent experience and competences.
The candidate can work fulltime or part time. Weekend and evening working is available, as is out of hours. These are optional.
