Job overview

Applications are invited for the post of FY2 Level Trust Doctor in Trauma & Orthopaedics. An exciting opportunity has arisen in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery at the Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

Main duties of the job

We require junior doctors at Foundation Level which, although the posts are not formally recognised for training, will allow doctors to obtain their foundation competences (if required) in an acute specialty and gain experience rotating through acute orthopaedics (adult and paediatric), elective orthopaedic surgery (adult and paediatric), and the Major Trauma Centre. Overnight care of plastic surgical trauma patients forms an interesting additional part of the job. Significant practical experience and training in the management of acute medical conditions will also be an integral part of the job. You will be supervised by a resident registrar 24/7 on the acute site.

Working for our organisation

HUTH has two main sites: Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital with an annual budget of approximately £500 million. The Trust employs around 11,000  staff and serves an extended population of 1.25 million, delivering a number of outpatient services from locations across the area.

The Trust’s secondary care service portfolio is comprehensive, covering the major medical and surgical specialties, routine and specialist diagnostic services and other clinical support services. These services are provided primarily to a catchment population of approximately 600,000 in the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire area.

HUTH provides specialist and tertiary services to a population of 1.25 million extending from Scarborough in North Yorkshire to Grimsby and Scunthorpe in North East and North Lincolnshire respectively. 

Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust strongly encourages new starters to have the Covid-19 vaccine. However, it is not a mandatory requirement to work for us.
