This is an exciting opportunity to establish a service recently commissioned as a proof of concept. We are seeking a Consultant with an interest in frailty on a 6 month fixed term basis in the first instance, with the possibility to extend and an interest in recruiting substantively.
London North West University Healthcare serves a diverse population of about 850,000 and employs around 9000 staff. Northwick Park Hospital has one of the busiest A&E's in the country and the acute frailty service is geared to avoid unnecessary admissions and reduce length of stay of our frail elders.
