Emergency Medicine

Emergency Medicine has one of the biggest shortages in the NHS and A&E in the UK can sometimes be an incredibly busy place to be. With that being said, when you’re working in the A&E departments across the UK, the staff really go the extra mile to make you feel like part of the family, as all the Doctors in the department are striving towards the same goal which is to ensure the highest level of patient safety. Because of the reliance on overseas doctors working in emergency medicine in the UK we tend to find that it has one of the most multi-cultural demographics which can go a long way to help making you feel at home. After integrating into the NHS from overseas, many departments will allow you to branch into sub specialist areas to ensure you are satisfied in your role and to further progress into your chosen speciality. With that in mind, emergency medicine roles in the UK are certainly among the most exciting as there is always another challenge around the corner.

What is required to be an Emergency Medicine specialist in the UK?

The most common route towards GMC registration as an experience Emergency Medicine Doctor is completing the highly prestigious MRCEM post graduate qualification, this is widely recognised across the UK and once completed you will have no trouble in securing a great role in the UK. For junior Doctors looking to start their career in Emergency Medicine it is recommended that you take PLAB to get into the UK system and start working on MRCEM when you are settled. Some hospitals will ask junior doctors to complete an ALS before starting so it’s good to keep up to date with that.

What our experts have to say:

“My advice to any Emergency Medicine Doctor in the UK is to carefully look into the Hospital before accepting any offer. It is not always best practice to go with the Hospital that are offering the highest salary without first knowing why the salary is higher than the ordinary NHS scale. The reasons might be a lack of CESR support, problems recruiting because of the location or negative press coverage. Whatever it might be, it’s always good to find out why one Hospital offers much higher than the other. It might not necessarily be a downside for you, but it’s important to know. BDI Resourcing only work with the best hospitals and we always ensure that you have all of the information that you need to make a well-informed decision.”
