An opportunity has arisen for an individual to join our friendly supportive team of Emergency Practitioners. The departments now see in excess of 140,000 patients per annum including those presenting with minor injuries and illness.

You will be joining well established and progressive team of enthusiastic Emergency Practitioners that provide 18 hours a day cover, ensuring the safe, efficient and timely flow of patients through both departments. In addition to our strong nursing team we have an excellent senior medical team that work closely with us in providing a patient centred service.

As an experienced Emergency Practitioner, the post holder will be responsible for the assessment of care needs and developing, implementing and evaluating programmes of care for patients with injury and illness within the emergency care setting.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
