London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust welcomes applications from people who wish to work part time or flexibly.

London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust is seeking to appoint 2 Trust Grade Doctors (FY2/CT1/CT2) in Acute Elderly Care at Northwick park Hospital.

These posts are to be based in our Older Persons Short Stay Unit (OPSSU), and front-door frailty services, with participation in the departmental on-call rota.

Dynamic, enthusiastic and team-oriented candidates are invited to apply for these positions.

Our department's aim is to deliver a comprehensive range of services across primary, intermediate and secondary care, and to improve access to specialist health care for older people, and in particular to develop and support:

  • The management of older people in the acute setting and development of acute services specifically aimed at early intervention and admission’s avoidance
  • Specialist, multidisciplinary Acute Wards for Older People at Northwick Park Hospital
  • Links with STARRS and Harrow Rapid Response focusing on prevention of Hospital admission, ambulatory care, acute medicine, A&E and outpatient services for older people.

Aims of the Older People’s Service at Northwick Park Hospital

The following aims will be at the heart of any service developments:

  1. Providing excellent, holistic and multi-disciplinary inpatient care at both our acute and rehabilitation hospitals.
  2. The delivery of appropriate and effective discharge and support packages aimed at retaining the independence and dignity of the individual within the community.
  1. The provision of a localised, community based Older People’s Service, wherever practically and clinically appropriate.
    1. A reduction in the number of re-admissions to hospital for Older People.
    2. A reduction in the length of stay of Older People at both Northwick Park and Central Middlesex Hospital.
    3. The delivery of preventive services aimed at avoiding acute admissions for Older People and strengthening links with the Intermediate Care Services.

Our aim is to provide a continuum of care for Older People spanning the acute District General Hospital, the local Specialist Rehabilitation Hospital and the necessary medical, social and therapies provision to promote maximal independence of older people living in the community. To this end, the Consultants in the Department of Medicine for Older People share activities in three spheres, maintaining a maximal continuity of care for patients moving through the system. As well as in-patient and out-patient facilities the department has a Post-Discharge Rehabilitation Service (located at Willesden hospital). 

The Care of the Elderly department has a friendly and informal atmosphere where the junior doctors feel well supported and achieve their educational targets. The successful appointee will be allocated an educational supervisor to assure that a personal development plan is agreed and will assure progression through continued professional development. We aspire to high standards of medical and nursing care, and routinely assess aspects of this with regular clinical auditing, to which the new appointee will be expected to contribute regularly.
