Emergency department consultants
We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have successfully appointed to three of the four Emergency Department posts at the Alex and have plans to fill the fourth post. This is in addition to the appointment of Jules Walton to the permanent position in Worcester last month.
All three consultants currently operate as practising Emergency Department consultants. Start dates are currently being finalised, but based on existing notice periods it is likely they will all join us at the beginning of August. In addition, we have secured an experienced agency consultant for the June- August months.
Now that we have made appointments and have plans to fill the 4th post, we will be meeting with the West Midlands Deanery in order to provide assurance around our continued educational support for our junior doctors.
