Working in intensive care is a challenging job, but it’s always worth it to see a healthy patient walk out of your unit. Our Intensive Care Medicine consultant will support the critical care team so that they can continue to deliver great healthcare to the community in Kent.
How that’s done, is up to you.
Every day you will lead the team to provide high-quality care through a compassionate and collaborative approach. You will help the junior doctors develop and grow as the future of healthcare. Your experience will be enhanced thanks to an exciting period of investment and redevelopment at the trust. You will have access to educational PA’s at the new medical school at the centre of the community, national investment, high-profile national studies, medical education and research.
To thrive in this role, you must have:
- Full specialist registration with the GMC (if you’re going to achieve this in the next 6 months, that’s great too).
- A passion to share all of your knowledge and experience working with critically ill adults and children.
- Whilst the NHS has been regularly declared the world’s best healthcare system it can be extremely demanding, you need to be familiar with the system and have worked in it before to be able to thrive in this job.
- Are you the doctor that everyone comes to solve problems? That’s great as a keen eye for detail and problem-solving skills set you up for success in audits.
