Applications are invited for a Clinical Fellow (Higher) in Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care (NCCU), commencing from February or August 2018 (other start dates will be considered).

These posts are particularly suitable for candidates considering an out of program experience from their base specialty at intermediate, or advanced level of ICM training, or for specialists requiring post-CCT experience in neurosciences critical care or major trauma critical care.

NCCU is a 23-bed critical care unit providing specialist neuro-intensive care and general intensive care facilities for regional (East of England) trauma, neurology, stroke and neurosurgical services covering a population of approximately 2.5 million.

NCCU is recognised by the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (UK) for all levels of ICM training and specialised ICM training. Clinical Fellows practise alongside ST and academic trainees on the NCCU and come from a wide range of backgrounds (including anaesthesia, intensive care, neurosurgery, neurology, emergency medicine) and have a range of clinical expertise.

Although it is desirable that applicants to this post have previous critical care experience, the duties of post holders are adapted to their learning needs and as such those with extensive and less extensive critical care experience can be accommodated. These posts provide outstanding learning opportunities in specialist neurosciences critical care and trauma care, as well as a good grounding in the more generic aspects of critical care.

In addition to its clinical functions, NCCU provides the infrastructure for world leading research in brain injury, neurosciences and intensive care medicine, and ample research opportunities are available to prospective applicants.

These are full-time clinical posts.

Applicants must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).
