''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


Consultant Physician in Ortho-Geriatrics

This innovative post is supported with a job plan consisting of 10 Programmed Activities and no associated on call activity. The post is based at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and is a substantive appointment.

This is a superb opportunity for a geriatrician who has recently gained CCT or for a more experienced candidate to join a supportive, forward thinking team. This post is proposed as an additional Geriatrician with a special interest in Orthopaedics to enhance specialist assessment and support reductions in length of stay and unnecessary admissions.  

Orthopaedic liaison services at Lancaster have been developed over the last few years. This is an exciting opportunity for a physician to join the team providing services to adult patients admitted under trauma and orthopaedics thus enhancing the services of the orthopaedic department. This allows the prospective candidate to focus on the delivery of the hip fracture pathway to ensure high quality care for our older fracture patients through well-co-ordinated multidisciplinary team work, pre-operative optimisation of care, prompt surgery and postoperative care.

You are required to have appropriate experience and interest in General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. There is currently one full time Consultant with an interest in Orthopaedic liaison.  You would be expected to contribute to daily weekday Consultant rounds on the Orthopaedic wards.
