CESR Rotational Posts

We are advertising two posts on our CESR rotational programme at University Hospital Lewisham Emergency Department

The post is intended to provide the clinician with the support and training required to successfully complete all aspects of the CESR process. It will be possible to provide specific three month secondment-style modules to address relevant educational and competency needs.

Secondments available include Anaesthesia, ICM, Acute Medicine, Paediatric Emergency Medicine and we are exploring the possibility to have a secondment at our local major trauma centre. The remaining nine months of the year will be working in our adult emergency department. Our department is well renowned for its training and support. We operate weekly teaching sessions incorporating a monthly journal club, simulation MDT training(with in-situ component) , FRCEM mock OSCE and SAQ practice by our FRCEM examiners and supervised US training

The Consultant body contains current FRCEM examiners, ATLS APLS & ALS instructors and all of whom are level 1 US trained. The evidence speaks for itself we have a proven track record in our long term middle grades successfully becoming consultants via the CESR process with the full support of the department, they would be happy to talk to you about this informally. There will be a specifically-designed training and teaching package for all successful applicants and there will be a designated Consultant supervisor for the duration of the rotation.

From a clinical perspective these posts will participate in the 24 hour Emergency Department rota. The rotation is initially offered on a fixed term contract for 6 months after which we would envisage extension on a mutually agreed basis to a 12 month rolling contract. We would estimate it would take 4 years to complete all the rotations and complete the FRCEM examinations.
There is also a capacity to do extra ‘bank work’ within the ED and our current in house pay rates are well above the agency capping rate so that we can secure our own trusted staff to ensure no compromise in patient care.
We have a vision at Lewisham ED that we are slowly progressing to and that is one of providing evidence based emergency care to our patients with early senior supervision. This means early access to investigations and specialist opinions at all times of day. This can only be achieved by looking after our staff so they feel like part of the ED family and forming close bonds with acute specialties which you yourself will help to solidify.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
