This post is suitable for anaesthetists with a minimum of 2 years experience in core anaesthesia or 3 years ACCS training (at least 21 months anaesthesia AND at least 3 months intensive care) at CT3/4 or above level by the time the successful applicant is appointed. The successful applicant will work as part of a close-knit, dynamic and experienced team to deliver anaesthetic and critical care services at Barnsley, covering a wide range of surgical specialities, including the provision of anaesthesia services to obstetrics and paediatrics in a busy district general hospital.

We have strengths and expertise in research, critical care, ultrasound courses/faculty e.g. FUSIC/FICE, day case anaesthesia, education (including simulation) and management and would welcome enquiries about specific opportunities in these and other areas.
