Job Description

We have a great opportunity for a Consultant Anaesthetist to work in Rochdale Day Case Theatres.  

This is a 6 month role with the option to be extended. 

Looking for a Dr to work 10 PA’s that can be worked flexibly across 7 days.

Rochdale Infirmary is situated close to Rochdale town centre and lies 14 miles north east of Manchester. It is the smallest of the trust’s four hospitals and forms part of the trust’s Bury and Rochdale care organisation.  

The urgent care centre provides non‑emergency services to around 240,000 residents that live in the communities of Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  

The hospital provides medical services including a programmed investigation unit providing medical day-case facilities which undertakes planned medical investigations and treatments for over 550 patients per month in 26 medical inpatient beds located across two wards.


In addition, medical services include two inpatient wards and an endoscopy department. The short stay clinical assessment unit (CAU) provides rapid assessment, diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute medical conditions. The unit has 16 inpatient beds and patients are referred by either general practitioners (GP) or from the urgent care centre or following transfer from other trust sites.  

The Oasis Unit, a 10 bed specialist dementia ward, offers acute medical treatment to patients with a diagnosis of dementia or delirium.

  The Rochdale endoscopy service is one of the four dedicated endoscopy units across the trust. The service provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic upper and lower GI endoscopy procedures. The endoscopy unit provides low risk endoscopy procedures to outpatients or inpatients in the event of an urgent scope being required. There are two endoscopy suites with a two-stage recovery area, the first stage containing nine recovery pods and a chaired area for second stage recovery.


Rochdale Infirmary provides elective 23-hour services for gynaecology, ophthalmology, vascular, endoscopy and pain management services, orthopaedic, urology, general surgery and plastics. The service currently operated five days per week with additional services made available. There is also a day case surgical and theatre ophthalmology suite.


The trust had 57,023 surgical admissions from February 2018 to January 2019. Emergency admissions accounted for 17,905 (31.4%), 32,974 (57.9%) were day case, and the remaining 6,144 (10.8 %) were elective.


We inspected urgent and emergency, medical and surgical services only during this visit.
