We have a stable leadership team, a clear sense of direction and we are working very closely with our health and local authority partners in the Mid Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Partnership (ICP), to deliver a better future for the population we serve. Our staff and volunteers strive to ensure patients are at the centre of our decision making.

At SFH we value our staff.  We know happy, well supported staff provide high quality care to patients. We want all patients to receive the level of care we expect our friends and family to receive and we are making progress with this aim. We have the highest staff engagement scores across the Midlands and in 2018 the Care Quality Commission assessed us as Good Overall and Outstanding for the Care we provide.

We offer a growing range of staff benefits, excellent training facilities and a modern, well equipped working environment. We are committed to supporting colleagues to maximise their potential and enjoy satisfying careers, underpinned by our staff health and wellbeing strategy; ‘Happy, Healthy, Here’.

In addition, there are five full-time Anaesthetic Specialty Doctors and three full-time Associate Specialists. The trainee establishment consists of 7 CTs, together with 9 ST3+s all rotating from the East Midlands School of Anaesthesia (EMSA). The department also has two Foundation Year 1 doctors and one Foundation Year 2 doctor on 4-month rotations.

We manage our service by reaching consensus decisions whenever possible. As colleagues, we are expected to actively participate in service development, departmental management, clinical governance & education. In doing so, we expect colleagues to treat each other with courtesy and respect at all times.

The Anaesthetic Department is actively in the process of achieving National Accreditation with The Royal College of Anaesthetists, we expect this to be complete within the next 2 years.

This is a replacement post and comprises 10 PA’s, which typically include direct clinical care of 8.5 PA and supporting professional activity of 1.5 PA. Additional SPA activity may be approved with mutual agreement for roles within the organisation.

This is a full-time position but candidates wishing to work part-time or in a job-share are encouraged to apply. If a part-time or job-share person is appointed modification of the job content will be discussed with the appointee on a personal basis. They will be required to devote substantially the whole of his/her time for the appointed sessions to the duties of the post and to give them priority at these times.
