We are inviting applications from suitably experienced doctors who are seeking a career development opportunity as a Trust Associate Specialist in Emergency Medicine. We would also consider applications from doctors who do not yet meet the specifications for Associate Specialist but could initially undertake a speciality grade position while being supported and developed to achieve the required skill set.

The post is based at Furness General Hospital and represents career development opportunity for clinicians with imagination, drive and commitment to develop Emergency Medicine whilst working with the current team to develop integrated services as part of the Better Care Together Project. We will consider applications from specialty grade doctors and support them in a developmental role to achieve the Trust Associate Specialist grade.
