Full job description

The senior clinical fellow post in Acute Medicine has been created to support the department in the delivery of both the inpatient and ambulatory patient care pathways. The rolling rota incorporates Acute Assessment Unit (AAU), Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC) and shared shifts on the General Internal Medical Rota (GIM).

The Acute Medicine Team at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is a high performing, vibrant and thriving training environment – with excellent levels of senior presence and support and a large dedicated multi-professional team.

As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will be committed to delivering clinical and quality targets agreed both nationally and locally with the clinical teams and commissioners.

Due to the high volumes of applications we receive for certain posts and depending our service needs, we reserve the right to close any adverts before the published closing date. After the closing date we strongly advise you check the email account which is registered. If you have not heard from us within five weeks of the closing date, please assume that you have not been shortlisted.

The Senior Clinical Fellow will be an integral member of the acute medical team, supporting senior decision making across the clinical areas, ensuring early, effective decision making and care implementation. Providing effective clinical leadership to junior members of the medical team and other healthcare professionals to ensure patients are consistently managed along the emergency care pathway to maintain the highest standards of care.

This post will provide broad experience in acute medical care in both an inpatient and ambulatory setting. The role offers both educational and training opportunities and identical rotas to members of the team in the Royal College of Physicians’ approved training posts. This includes the same study leave and budget allowances.

We provide services from two main hospitals, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital, and a number of clinics across London and the South-East. We have over 6,000 members of staff that are PROUD to Care for nearly one million people. Both hospitals provide full clinical services, including full maternity, emergency and children’s, in addition to a range of community-based services across London, such as award-winning sexual health and HIV clinics.

We’re one of the best preforming Trusts in the country. We’re also one of the top trusts to work for – our staff say they’re engaged, motivated, and would recommend us as a place to work and receive treatment.

Our Trust has been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Good’ in all five of the main domains of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, giving an us overall rating of ‘Good’. We’ve also been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating for ‘use of resources’ by an NHS Improvement inspection.

Our facilities are some of the best in the country. We have been investing around £10 million a year in our estate. We are currently spending £25 million on expanding our adult and neonatal critical care facilities at Chelsea and Westminster and redevelopment of our children’s unit at West Middlesex – in partnership with our charity, CW+ and generous donors.

The post holder’s specific responsibilities would be:
To work as part of the multi-disciplinary team in order to support and help to provide a comprehensive Acute Medicine Service within the Trust

Maintenance of the highest clinical standards in the management of patients.

Assisting with teaching, training and assessment of junior staff and medical students, nursing staff and other members of the multi-disciplinary team

To actively participate in both departmental and Trust matters concerning Clinical Governance and audit.

To have responsibility for ensuring active participation in continuing medical education (CME).

Deputise from time to time for absent colleagues, and exceptionally to perform additional duties in occasional emergencies and unforeseen circumstances to ensure the safe running of the Department.
