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. 

We are looking for enthusiastic doctors who have satisfactorily completed Foundation Year 2 training to take up our innovative newly established Post Foundation Clinical Fellowship posts across medicine at ST1 level from August 2018 (earlier start date will be considered). Though primarily based at Manchester Royal Infirmary, there will be opportunity to rotate through other hospitals within the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) group. 

These posts offer excellent opportunity for doctors wishing to enhance their CVs and gain experience in medicine before commencing specialty training. Candidates will be assigned an educational and clinical supervisor who will provide support, career guidance and mentoring. There will also be access to e-portfolio to document work-based assessments and reflective learning completed during this time. 

Our Post Foundation Clinical Fellowship year is designed to support flexibility and can be adapted to accommodate your circumstances, whether this is a need to work less than full time, to work annualised hours to support a break mid-way through to travel or full time working for 12 months of the year. The year can be built of up to three placements across a range of medical specialties including:

    • Care of the elderly
    • Acute medicine
    • Emergency medicine (Adults & Paediatrics)
    • Stroke medicine
    • General medicine
    • Gastroenterology

Please state in your application which specialties you are interested in, noting that this is not an exhaustive list, so should there be additional areas you are interested in let us know and we’ll accommodate these wherever possible. Whilst this is initially a 12 month post, there is scope to extend the role duration beyond this point. 

The role will involve working out of hours either in the emergency department or on our medical on-call rota, attracting a 1A or 1B banding payment respectively.
