The Trust is looking to recruit suitably qualified doctors to work across all grades and specialties of work, ranging from a single shift to filling a more long term rota pattern with evening, weekend and on-call shifts available.

As this is ‘Bank’ work, it is on an ‘as and when’ basis with no guaranteed hours, however it does offer doctors increased flexibility by selecting shifts to work around their lifestyle.

Located in Weston-super-Mare, UHBW’s Weston Division provides a wide range of general and specialist hospital services. There is an accident and emergency service, surgical and day case units, intensive and coronary care, midwifery delivery unit and full on-site diagnostic services.

The hospital has around 259 beds. Since merging with the Bristol site, Weston has also benefitted from the educational and clinical support that comes with a large university hospital. We look forward to welcoming you to our family.
