From 1st October 2017, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) has joined together to create a new Foundation Trust which has been named Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. 

Our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester and in 12- 18 months will also include the services currently provided by North Manchester General Hospital.  These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester.  That’s why this really is an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth career opportunities for great people right across our Group. 

Enthusiastic and experienced candidates are invited to apply for Junior and Senior Clinical Fellow roles within the Department of Cardiac Surgery at Manchester Royal Infirmary. Roles are available on both a permanent and a fixed term basis.

The department undertakes all aspects of adult Cardiac Surgery except transplantation as well as adult congenital Cardiac Surgery. There is no thoracic component. The Senior Fellow posts contribute to a 1:8 on call rota, whereas the Junior Fellow post contributes to a 1:9 on call rota.

Applicants for the Senior Clinical Fellow roles must have a minimum of 2 years’ full time (or equivalent part time) hospital service in the ST1/2 grade or higher, MRCS and 1 or more years’ experience in Cardiothoracic Surgery. These roles offer a significant opportunity to further your experience in Cardiac Surgery, whether you are looking to gain a training number, or develop surgical and patient management skills that will stand you in a good position for other fellowships in the UK or abroad.

Applicants for the Junior Clinical Fellow role must have completed their foundation training and wish to develop their surgical and patient management skills. Due to the nature of this post, core hours will be spend within the Cardiac Surgery department, whereas the on call commitments will support the running of the Urology, ENT and Cardiac Surgery departments. This role therefore offers the right candidate the opportunity to gain a wide variety of surgical experiences which would be invaluable in applications for specialist training.

These roles offer a wide variety of experiences, from the operating theatre and outpatient clinics, to the management of patients in Level 2 and Level 3 intensive care settings. Support is on hand from a group of experienced consultants, staff grade doctors, advanced nurse practitioner, surgical care practitioners as well as other clinical fellows and doctors in training. The department is anticipating completing 150-200 more open heart operations in 2017/18 than the previous financial year, and the potential opportunities of a Single Hospital Service in the City of Manchester are plenty for a motivated individual. It is an exciting time to be joining the department.

Successful candidates would have a named consultant supervisor and would be encouraged to further their academic, training and career aspirations.

Applicants from the across the UK, EU and further afield are encouraged.
