Anaesthesia and Simulation Fellow

Airedale NHS Foundation Trust
25 Mar 2019
28 Mar 2019
Contract Type
Full Time

We are always looking for enterprising and innovative approaches to the way we provide our services. We are a national centre for telemedicine and introduced telehealth to the UK offender healthcare sector and also provide the service to patients in their care homes. Community matters to us and we are supported by 400 dedicated volunteers and have strong links with Bradford University, Craven College and Leeds City College to ensure we inspire the workforce of the future.

We want to attract staff who embrace our ‘Right Care’ behaviours of compassion, a commitment to quality of care and working together for patients – we want to make these part of our DNA.


This is an exciting post which combines a clinical role in a friendly and high-performing Anaesthetic Department together with a role as a Simulation Fellow, delivering simulation-based training to staff across the Trust.

The post is full time and ideally aimed at doctors with 2 years anaesthetic experience who are hoping to gain the primary FRCA and enter higher specialist training. Doctors with less experience will be considered provided they have obtained initial competencies in Anaesthesia and Critical Care. The post would also be suitable for doctors with more experience who are out of training, particularly those who wish to gain the final FRCA and re-enter training, or existing SAS doctors wishing to extend their skills and take on new roles. The responsibilities of the post will reflect the previous experience of the post-holder. For doctors wishing to gain the primary FRCA full participation in our departmental examination programme will be offered. For those wanting to gain the final FRCA we offer a programme of support for MCQ, SAQ and VIVA practice. Depending on previous experience, 1 to 2 days of the post holder’s time will be spent developing and delivering simulation training.

The post is a fixed term contract for 12 months but could be extended if mutually agreeable. The post is full-time but applicants wishing to work less than full-time will be considered.

12 PA as well as 10 PA job plans are available on negotiation (48 hr week on average).

The successful applicant will be assigned a clinical supervisor in the anaesthetic department and will receive educational supervision from the Trust Simulation Lead and the Clinical Skills team to deliver high quality simulation training including debriefing.
