Do you have wide-ranging medical knowledge and the ability to think on your feet? Are you great at multitasking, managing and prioritising a variety of problems across several patients at once? Are you looking for a hugely rewarding role that will put you on the front line of saving lives in emergencies? Then a job in Accident and Emergency (A&E) within York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where you could continue your training may be just what you’re looking for.

A&E doctors are generally the first point of contact for anyone arriving to A&E. Working in a busy and demanding environment where life is never dull, you’ll be working closely with new arrivals to quickly evaluate and clinically assess the extent of people’s injuries.

Not only will you need to quickly understand a patient’s problems, but you’ll also need to be able to accurately recommend the right treatments too – whether that’s straightforward treatment, admission to the care of a specialist ward team, or requesting a follow-up appointment with the patient’s GP.
