We have a vacancy for Middle Grade Senior Clinical Fellow Doctors in the Emergency Department at Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny situated in the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. This post would be ideal for those wishing to gain experience in Emergency Medicine at a higher level before considering further training either via the ST or CESR route.

The department has a good track record of developing senior EM doctors and support will be given to work towards gaining an ST post or Specialist Registration via Article 14. The department has recently supported 2 Specialty and Staff Grade doctors through the Fellowship Examination (FRCEM) and several others through MRCEM. The department is also committed to the provision of protected time for Supporting Professional Activities (SPA) to conduct CPD, prepare for appraisal, revalidation and exams.

Nevill Hall Hospital is a busy District General Hospital, with all core clinical services on site. We currently see 56,000 new patients per annum, of which 25% are children. Abergavenny is a historic market town in the Welsh Borders. It is rurally located in the Brecon Beacons National Park and maintains excellent transport links by road to the M4 corridor and by rail to the whole of South Wales, the Midlands, North West of England and London.

There is a dynamic and enthusiastic team of 5 Consultants who believe in leading from the frontline and aim to provide outstanding care with a shop floor presence at least 12 hours per day seven days a week. They are supported by an excellent Middle Grade tier made up of ST4+ trainees, Speciality doctors and Senior Clinical Fellows and 12 junior (F2/CT level) doctors who are also supported by a team of experienced ENPs.

There is a strong emphasis on teaching. Alongside the weekly teaching program there is a weekly paediatric resuscitation or trauma simulation which is also attended by the relevant hospital specialities. We have a departmental Ultrasound machine with echo probe and middle grades are expected to achieve Level 1 Emergency Ultrasound competence during their time with us.

Although these Clinical Fellow posts are not recognised for training, they are afforded the same training opportunities, with full access to in house training. You will receive an intensive departmental induction, an Educational Supervisor, weekly teaching sessions and support to attend courses or exams that will further a career in Emergency Medicine. Local life support courses are available.

• Enhanced check with barred list information, including
- An adults and children’s barred list check
