About our Trust
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides services from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital—and a number of community-based services across London, such as award-winning sexual health and HIV clinics.
We are one of the best performing trusts in the country. With over 6,000 staff, we proudly serve a million people locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. We treat a patient every 40 seconds, performing 34,000 operations and carrying out 391,000 scans, x-rays and procedures each year. As the second largest maternity provider in the country we help deliver a baby almost every hour of the day.
Our Trust has recently been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Good’ in all five of the main domains of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, giving an us overall rating of ‘Good’. We are one of the first trusts to receive ‘Good’ across the board under the new CQC inspection framework. Our Trust was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating for ‘use of resources’ by an NHS Improvement inspection which was completed during the same period as the CQC assessment.
About the role
CONSULTANT IN ACUTE MEDICINE AND AMBULATORY EMERGENCY CARE
Applicants are invited to apply for a post in Acute Medicine And Ambulatory Emergency Care, at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust. This post will be based at the West Middlesex university Hospital site, and have commitments on the Acute Medicine rota. The Acute Medicine team is a progressive and dynamic department.
The 46 bedded AAU/AMU sees 35-50 patients a day, working closely with Emergency Department and Surgical colleagues to adopt an innovative, problem solving approach. Our Ambulatory Care service sees over 50-70 patients daily and offers an alternative to admission, facilitates supported discharge and utilises the skills of AMU physicians in a model recognised as good practice by the National Ambulatory Care Network.
The post holder will undertake fixed clinical and non-clinical sessions according to an agreed timetable as part of a Consultant Team. It is envisaged that the new appointment will further consolidate our teaching reputation, strengthen our highly motivated multidisciplinary team, and enable further development of this busy, dynamic department.
