The General Medicine team are looking for experienced individuals to contribute towards senior clinical decision making within the department. You will be leading junior doctors and reporting to the Consultant team, playing an active part in the delivery of an exceptional standard of medical care.

This is an exciting opportunity as General Medicine roles are quite rare in the NHS, given most of the system is broken into the various medical sub-specialties. This is an excellent chance for a doctor with extensive Internal Medicine experience to utilise their skills across the breadth of Medicine.

Main Duties:

  • As a General Medicine Specialty Doctor, you will be responsible for embodying senior clinical leadership. You will be heavily involved in making discharge decisions to ensure patients are able to leave the wards in a timely manner, while arranging any necessary ongoing care.
  • This is a 10 PA (40 hour) role, with minimal participation on the Registrar night shift oncall rota. Instead, you will be expected to work 1:4 – 1:6 weekends (dependent on rota) during the day to ensure discharge of patients runs smoothly over the weekends.
  • This is a multidisciplinary role where you will work closely with colleagues from across Medicine, including Endocrinology, Geriatrics, Cardiology, Respiratory, Stroke, Gastroenterology etc. Participation in MDT meetings is essential.
  • You will be expected to supervise the junior doctor team and report to the Consultants.
  • Teaching junior doctors will occur on the ward as well as in classroom settings.

The Department & Hospital:

The Trust delivers care to over half a million people every year and manages care across inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic and maternity services. You will largely be receiving patients from ED, Acute Medicine and community services, working with junior doctors, Consultants, nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians, and other allied health professionals.

There is a wide range of medical wards at the hospital: several are General Medicine wards while the rest are sub-specialist (e.g. Cardiology, Respiratory, Endocrinology, Geriatrics etc.). A large portion of the work will be based on these General Medicine wards or treating General Medicine cases on the sub-specialist wards. There is also opportunity to get involved in General Medicine middle grade clinics.  

Support and CPD

If this will be your first role in the NHS, then the first 6-12 months will involve an extensive induction period where you will be fully supported in settling into the new healthcare system. If you have UK experience, this induction period will be shorter, per your requirements. Once ready, work towards the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) pathway can begin, gathering evidence to get onto the specialist register and become a substantive Consultant. The Trust will be working with senior doctors to gather this evidence and are driven to help as many people as possible complete CESR.

The location:

The hospital is based in a small city in Yorkshire, within 40 minutes of two of the largest cities in the north of England. This gives the opportunity to either live in the smaller city for a peaceful way of life, or to live in the larger cities for a more bustling environment and commuting into work. You can shape your experience around the needs of yourself and any family you’ll be bringing with you. There are 39 schools rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ in the 3 miles surrounding the hospital.


The team are open to applicants from the UK or from overseas and will support you in settling into the new role.

To apply for this position, you will need the following:

  • Ideally full MRCP, but just parts 1 and 2 can be considered alongside good Medicine experience
  • GMC Registration either waiting ID check or Complete
  • OET or IELTS
  • 5+ years of clinical experience
  • Registrar (or equivalent) level experience
