With a budget of around £270m, three hospitals and 5,500 staff, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust provides hospital-based services to the population of Hartlepool, Stockton on Tees and parts of East Durham and Sedgefield as well as community, therapeutic and screening to a wider population across Durham and Teesside.


North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust

Consultant in Emergency Medicine

This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative and dynamic directorate. The Emergency Care Directorate at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust is continuing to expand and transform our urgent and emergency care services. We have recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC with elements of emergency care rated ‘Outstanding’. Our Integrated Urgent Care Service has recently won a parliamentary award for excellence in urgent and emergency care and we have also received national recognition from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care for outstanding performance.

The Emergency Department has a well-established workforce of 9.5 wte Emergency Medicine consultants. We provide 0800 to 2200 consultant shop floor cover 7 days a week and also have 24/7 middle grade shop floor presence. The directorate has invested in the development of an Advanced Nurse Practitioner workforce and this is now well established across Urgent and Emergency Care. We have also recently appointed two physicians associates and are constantly exploring alternative workforce models to support and compliment our existing team. We have a team of excellent nursing staff including Paediatric nurses who work in our paediatric ED service. The directorate recognises the increasingly complex and frail patients that attend ED and have recently in partnership with our community services colleagues developed a front of house frailty team who are supported by an established emergency care therapy team consisting of Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists who support with the pro-active assessment and flow of patients through the Emergency Department. In addition to this, the department benefits from access to child and adult mental health services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also have close working relationships with acute medicine colleagues and our Acute Assessment model is regarded as one of the best in the country and has recently featured in a best practice guide for the Emergency Care Improvement Programme. The ED team consistently meet the 4 hour standard and ambulance handover targets and as such do not require corridor working. GP diverts are an exceptionally rare event in our department. 

Urgent and Emergency Care sees in excess of 100,000 patients per year between the Emergency Department at University Hospital of North Tees and the two urgent care centres, on of which is co-located on the North Tees site and the other at the Hartlepool site. The Urgent Care service is GP led with ENPs, AP’s and is also supported by the emergency medicine consultants and middle grades. The Emergency Department has a 4 bedded resuscitation room with one dedicated as a paediatric resuscitation area. There is also a separate Paediatric Emergency Department with separate waiting room and 6 examination rooms. There is a quiet area dedicated to the assessment of the vulnerable particularly the elderly with memory issues.

The trust is committed to the continuous development of its workforce and successful candidates will be entitled to protected training time. We can offer dynamic job plans and actively encourage and support specialist interests, some examples of where this is already included in job plans include Sports Medicine, Paediatrics, Education and Simulation. We also benefit from a BSE accredited Echo cardiology unit which offers ultrasound support training
