Based across both sites, the posts will commence in August 2018, initially for 6 months until February 2019, but there is a possibility of extension at that stage.

Southport and Ormskirk hospital is a busy DGH which offers broad orthopaedic experience across the specialty. You will be the registrar for one consultant within the firm with an expectation that you will participate in all the routine work for that consultant, including fracture clinic, elective clinic and elective and trauma operating lists. You will participate in the middle grade on call rota which is a 1 in 8 on call (non resident on call).

You will join a team led by a young and dynamic group of 6 Orthopaedics consultants (soon to be 10) who believe in delivering safe, high quality and timely patient care.
