Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Guy's and St Thomas' is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country, with almost 11,000 staff, a turnover of over £900m and around 900,000 patient contacts a year.

The Trust is made up of two of London's oldest and most well known teaching hospitals. The hospitals have a long history, dating back almost 900 years, and have been at the forefront of medical progress and innovation since they were founded. Both hospitals have built on these traditions and continue to have a reputation for excellence and innovation. We are part of King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), a pioneering collaboration between one of the world’s leading research-led universities and three of London’s most successful NHS Foundation Trusts. Equality of opportunity is our Policy. The Trust provides health services to a diverse community.

We are advertising for four 1 year Senior Clinical Fellows in Proactive care of Older People undergoing Surgery. This is an established clinical fellow programme, in its 5th year with excellent feedback.

The post holder will work within the Department of Ageing and Health 'Proactive Care of Older people undergoing Surgery' (POPS) service, which is an innovative service delivering CGA-based care to older people undergoing surgery. The work will be based at both Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals.

The applicant may have a background in geriatric medicine, acute/general medicine or anaesthetics.

The post holder will be involved in the delivery of preoperative comprehensive geriatric assessment, development of care pathways, management of inpatients on surgical wards, and training of surgical staff in 'geriatric issues'. The post holder will participate in outpatient clinics, ward rounds, and multidisciplinary team meetings. There are likely to be on call duties as a medical registrar on a 1 in 8 rota for at least 6 months of the one year post.

As a 1 year POPS Clinical Fellow you will find exciting opportunities to learn about perioperative medicine, service development, business planning, and project evaluation. There is an expectation that the post holder will present and publish findings and will be supported to seek research funding.

Start date for these posts is either August or October 2018.

Closing date: 30/03/2018, midnight.

Applications are welcomed from applicants with a disability. We can make reasonable adjustments and offer support and advice in a variety of ways throughout the application process. Equality of opportunity is our policy.

As an organisation we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients. This means that some staff groups will increasingly be asked to work a more flexible shift pattern so that we can offer services in the evenings or at weekends.
