Addenbrooke’s Hospital is the Major Trauma Centre for the East of England, serving a population of around 6.4 million people. This thriving, modern teaching hospital is the local hospital for people living in the Cambridge area and is the regional referral centre for a number of specialties, including neurosurgery, cancer surgery, transplantation, plastic surgery, vascular and paediatrics. Addenbrooke’s offers unparalleled capacity for teaching, including involvement in the high fidelity simulation centre, and research within the department as well as the wider biomedical campus.

Successful candidates will be leading the care provided by the multidisciplinary team of the Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care Unit (NCCU).
