Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has an exciting opportunity for a motivated and experienced Advanced Critical Care Practitioner (ACCP) to join our dynamic, supportive and friendly critical care team of 12 fully Qualified ACCPs and 3 trainee ACCPs. You must be dedicated and patient focused to provide commitment to the highest standards of advanced care for our critically ill patients.

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust operates from two main sites: Castle Hill Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary. We provide a full range of acute services to the people of Hull and East Yorkshire area. We also provide a number specialist services to North Yorkshire, North and North-East Lincolnshire. We have among the lowest infection rates in the UK. We have invested over a quarter of a billion pounds in improving the patient environment. This includes the award winning Queen’s Centre for Oncology and Haematology, the state of the art Centre for Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery, Medical Research and Day Surgery facilities. We aim ‘To meet the needs of our population, our partners and our people'

The Critical Care Department at Hull Royal Infirmary consists of 22 beds, with the ability to accommodate a mixture of Level 2 and Level 3 patients, in order to meet the needs of the hospital at any given time. The specialties found at Hull Royal Infirmary include; Vascular, General Surgery, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Maxillo-Facial, Neurosurgery, Medicine and Respiratory. As a Major Trauma Centre, the department provides anaesthesia, airway and critical care support for trauma patients.

Castle Hill Hospital consists of a 10 bedded Critical Care Department, catering for a mixture of Level 2 and Level 3 patients, under the specialties of Upper Gastro Intestinal, Maxilo-facial, Urology, Gynaecology, Neurology, Haematology and Oncology. Alongside this, there is a 12 bedded Cardiac Unit. Although the cardiac unit is not part of the rotation expected of ACCPs there are opportunities for exposure to cardiothoracic and cardiology patients, especially out of hours.
