COTE/Acute Frailty - Consultant
£ 84,559 per year Permanent - Full time
The Frailty Service at Royal Lancaster Infirmary prides itself on the level of care it provides to its patients.
This post offers the successful candidate an opportunity to contribute to the further development of an established service in our Acute Frailty Unit, but also to be part of our developing Frailty Intervention Team service which works closely with colleagues in Emergency Medicine and the community to help patients return to their normal place of residency at the earliest opportunity.
The post will suit candidates who are passionate about Frailty and are motivated to help keep patients out of hospital wherever possible.
There is an emphasis on the ability of the team to excel as care providers. This applies across all levels of staff on the unit and is demonstrated by an active programme to develop Advanced Nurse Practitioners who remain as part of the permanent staff and embed the culture of the team.

We are the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT).
We are a University teaching hospital full of hard working and dedicated staff providing community and hospital services across the Morecambe Bay area - an area covering a thousand square miles in south Cumbria and north Lancashire.
We operate from three main hospitals - Furness General Hospital (FGH) in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI), and Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal, as well as a number of community healthcare premises including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe, and Ulverston Community Health Centre.
FGH and the RLI have a range of General Hospital services, with full Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and various Consultant-led services. 
WGH provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre, that can help with a range of non-life threatening conditions such as broken bones and minor illnesses.
All three main hospitals provide a range of planned care including outpatients, diagnostics, therapies, day case and inpatient surgery. In addition, a range of local outreach services and diagnostics are provided from community facilities across Morecambe Bay.
Our community services for adults are provided in people’s homes, community centres, clinics, GP Practices, community hospitals and our main hospitals. Our aim is to work with people to help them remain independent, improve their health and manage their conditions through high quality care, advice and support.
