Locum Consultant in Geriatrics


Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 28,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of ten hospitals across seven separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider.

We are pleased to invite applications for a one year fixed Consultant post in Geriatric medicine based at Wythenshawe Hospital. We are looking to employ an enthusiastic geriatrician to join our dynamic, pioneering, supportive and family friendly department.

There will be opportunities to work across all workstreams dependent on individual preferences as well as opportunities to work part time depending on individual circumstances. 

We are a large department with 20 consultants and deliver a range of outstanding and nationally recognised services including excellent complex care wards that provide superb inpatient care to frail older patients and a range of new and exciting services to meet the needs of our population: acute frailty, stroke, surgical liaison, orthogeriatrics and onco- geriatrics and management of long term conditions and community work.
We have a large teaching commitment and take a lead with many trust wide issues relevant to older people.

Even though we already offer a range of services, we are constantly trying to improve, develop and innovate our services further, and we are looking for new consultants to join us on this journey.

Manchester is a fantastic place to be in, having been voted the UK’s best place to live two years in a row. Manchester is a vibrant city offering a range of excellent museums, theatres, shops and restaurants. South Manchester and Trafford offer the best of both worlds, a mixture of trendy urban living as well as idyllic rural areas.  Surrounded by excellent schools and with easy access to Manchester city centre, the Metro link, Manchester airport, and good access to the motorway systems, coming to work and live here is a decision you will not regret.

If candidates are interested in a shorter contract or shorter hours then these requests will be considered.
