Consultant in Adult Critical Care

NHS Medical & Dental: Consultant

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the regional specialist care provider for south west London, Surrey and beyond. The trust provides a high quality, comprehensive range of health services from leading edge tertiary and trauma care to community services.

With national and regional referrals added to our local 3.5m catchment, we serve a population of around 5m.

Co-located with St George’s, University of London and with both organisations now in a formal strategic alliance with King’s Health Partners, the trust delivers with its partners high quality research and education both of which contribute to the healthcare provision of tomorrow.

Acute and tertiary health services are delivered from over 1,000 beds across two sites, by around 8,000 staff.

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major acute hospital that offers very specialist care for complex injuries and illnesses, including trauma, neurology, cardiac care, renal transplantation, cancer care and stroke. It has a helipad which opened in spring 2014 and the work of its emergency department can currently be seen on Channel 4’s ‘24 Hours in A&E’ programme. The hospital also provides all the usual care you would expect from a local NHS district general hospital.

We also provide services at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton. These include outpatient rapid diagnostic and treatment facilities, a minor injuries unit, limb fitting services and 70 elderly, intermediate care and rehabilitation beds.

As well as hospital services, we provide a wide variety of specialist, maternity and community services to children, adults, older people and people with learning disabilities. These services are provided from St John’s Therapy Centre, 11 health centres and clinics, schools, nursing homes and people’s own homes. The trust also manages the healthcare service at HMP Wandsworth.



Consultants in Adult Critical Care

Applications are invited for Consultant Intensivist posts in Adult Critical Care at St George’s University Hospitals Foundation Trust, London. These opportunities have arisen due to retirements and expansion of services.  Several posts became vacant prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has itself necessitated further expansion.

We are looking for excellent individuals to join the critical care team of this progressive London teaching hospital. Critical care has expanded from 60 beds to 112 beds in response to increased COVID-19 demand (with plans identified to surge further if required).  Planning is ongoing for anticipated long term bed requirements of between 100-140 beds, even after the excess COVID-19 demand has ceased.


This is an opportunity to become involved in the development of this long-term expansion, shape clinical care, introduce new services, develop research opportunities and bring your own interests to support the growth of the department. In addition to General Intensive Care, the department specialises in Cardiothoracic/Cardiology Intensive Care, Neuro Intensive Care and supports an Outreach service, Critical Care Retrieval Service and a Survivorship programme.  Experience or interest in these areas is beneficial and training will be given to those who wish to pursue such sub-specialisation.

Intensivists are currently working across COVID-19 and Non-COVID-19 areas and services. Subject to activity, there is the opportunity to arrange a proportion of DCC in a secondary specialty of interest within the critical care directorate, anaesthesia, academia or an alternative supporting specialty. 

Applicants should have the FFICM or an equivalent intensive care qualification and have suitable experience and qualifications in their proposed secondary specialty.
