Do you share our values? We’re looking for applications from people who:

- care about what they do
- respect and value others
- listen in order to improve
- always do what they can to be helpful

…to help make us a valued and trusted partner within our care system, that delivers safe effective care to our local population.


We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic consultant to join the existing care of the elderly physicians in providing a comprehensive range of elderly care services to the local population around Scarborough. The post would be suitable for either a newly qualified consultant or an experienced consultant looking for a fresh challenge. Any sub-specialist interests can be accommodated, but an interest in acute elderly care would be particularly welcome. Applicants who wish to work on a job share basis are encouraged to apply.

The Trust is part of the joint undergraduate Hull and York Medical School (HYMS) which partners the University of York, University of Hull and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Students are now well established and regarded and follow a five-year curriculum, which makes strong use of problem based learning techniques. There are HYMS departments on our main acute Hospital sites in York and Scarborough which provide new and improved teaching facilities for undergraduate students.

Applicants must possess MRCP or equivalent and be fully registered with the GMC and hold a licence to practise. Applicants should be on the GMC Specialist Register for Elderly Medicine and it is desirable that candidates have entry on the GMC Specialist Register for General (Internal) Medicine, via CCT (proposed CCT date must be within 12 months of the interview date), CESR or European Community Rights. A familiarity with issues of service organisation and development would be particularly advantageous.
Candidates must be aware of the organisation's expectation, (where it is a requirement of the service) for them to be prepared to work across any of the Hospital sites managed by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Hospital sites include, York, Scarborough, Malton, Bridlington and Whitby. Please review the supporting documents for this vacancy or contact the department for more details on base location.

The recruitment process for this position will take place over two days. Applicants should be aware that the Assessment Centre is a deselective process and candidates will be required to pass 2 of the exercises in order to proceed to the formal interview stage.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However please be aware that the organisation is unable to guarantee Certificates of Sponsorship for successful candidates. Non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely in these circumstances to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.

In view of recent changes to Home Office Immigration Regulations all applicants must state their current immigration status, including expiry dates.
