Job Description

Are you a Senior House Officer who specialises in General Medicine?

Do you want to work when you want rather than a rota?

We have ad-hoc shifts available covering a full rota including Days, Nights , Evenings and Weekends at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust became a NHS Foundation Trust in January 2005, providing health services at the Chesterfield Royal Hospital and at other facilities in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.

The Trust developed a scheme where vulnerable patients could order cost-price 'Home from Hospital' food packs through the discharge lounge which was featured by the BBC in "Operation Hospital Food". "The type of patient that might use these packs doesn't normally have a big appetite - they just need something simple, which is why I suggested the basics - such as bread, cheese, milk and butter. That way they can make themselves a cheese sandwich, cheese on toast, bread and butter, something very easy to have with a cup of tea. The hope is that it will reduce the risk of a patient not eating and drinking properly, one of the potential reasons for early re-admission to hospital. It's not rocket science, but as far as we know, it's not been done anywhere else in the NHS.

Chesterfield offers a town lifestyle set on the edge of the glorious Peak District, a great outdoor leisure experience, local independent retailers, high street names and is a place where history, heritage and modernity go hand-in-hand.

With new schools and one of the largest colleges in England, Chesterfield is home to a wide range of businesses including IT specialists, world class engineering and communications companies. From high street names to local specialists, arts and culture, hotels and an historic town centre market, the town has a vibrant heart.
