An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our busy and dynamic paediatric emergency department as a fixed term post- pending substantive appointment -10 PA consultant.

The Children’s Hospital Emergency Department has around 58,000 attendances per year (excluding the pandemic 2020) from the local paediatric population from birth up to the age of 16 years.  Patients over the age of 16 are also seen if they are in transition to adult services. As well as being a regional major trauma centre, the department is considered a centre of excellence for high quality clinical care, training and consistent achievement of quality indicators.

The post holder is expected to work regular week days, weekend shifts and on calls within the paediatric emergency department, to contribute to the current consultant shop floor cover of 8am-midnight 365 days of the year.

Applicants should possess, or be within 6 months of receiving, a CCT in Emergency Medicine or Paediatrics with sub-specialty accreditation in Paediatric Emergency Medicine at appointment.  Equivalent clinical experience will also be considered

The East Riding of Yorkshire, or simply East Riding or East Yorkshire, is an area in Northern England. The name is traditionally and geographically a reference to the easternmost of the three subdivisions (called Thrydings or Ridings) of the traditional county of Yorkshire. The traditional cultural and historic geographic county, the East Riding of Yorkshire borders the North Sea to the east of the county. To the north across the River Derwent is the North Riding of Yorkshire, and to the west across the River Ouse is the West Riding of Yorkshire.

In terms of neighbouring local government administration, the East Riding of Yorkshire unitary authority adjoins North Yorkshire to the north, north-west and to the west, South Yorkshire metropolitan area to the south-west and Lincolnshire across the Humber Estuary to the south. The City of Kingston upon Hull is a separate unitary authority immediately to the south and forms part of the ceremonial county area. Other councils areas adjacent to the unitary authority include North East Lincolnshire, beyond the Humber Estuary; North Lincolnshire, beyond the Humber and on land; Hull, Doncaster, Selby, York, Ryedale and Scarborough.

The landscape consists of a crescent of low chalk hills, the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by the low-lying fertile plains of Holderness and the Vale of York. The Humber Estuary and North Sea mark its southern and eastern limits. Archaeological investigations have revealed artefacts and structures from all historical periods since the last ice age. There are few large settlements and no industrial centres. The area is administered from the ancient market and ecclesiastical town of Beverley.

Major sporting and entertainment venues are concentrated in Kingston upon Hull, while the seaside and market towns support semi-professional and amateur sports clubs and provide seasonal entertainment for visitors. Bishop Burton is the site of an agricultural college, and Hull provides the region's only university. On the southern border, close to Hull, the Humber Bridge spans the Humber Estuary to enable the A15 to link Hessle with Barton-upon-Humber in North Lincolnshire.

In 2019, there were 601k residents in East Riding of Yorkshire county with an average age of 42.2 years. Population density was 242 residents per square kilometer. Population grew by 5.8% since 2002 and population average age increased by 2.6 years in the same period. Based on Census, there were 2.31 residents per household in 2011.

Department

Health services in East Yorkshire are provided for a resident population of approximately 626,000.  Regional services are provided for approximately 250,000 children under sixteen. The majority of children's services are based at the Children's Hospital providing acute and specialist services combined with community and mental health care.

The hospital became a designated paediatric regional trauma centre in 2012 and the children's Emergency Department sees upwards of 58,000 new patients per year. The Children’s Hospital provides secondary paediatrics for the city, which comprises about 20% of the population of East Yorkshire. 

The Emergency Department provides emergency services for children less than 16 years of age or over the age of 16 in transition. The Teaching Hospital (TH) & General Hospital provides Emergency Department services for those over 16 years of age.

The work of the department covers the whole range of emergency medicine problems and all grades of severity of conditions, from the most minor to the most major. Approximately 60% of the workload is trauma, and 40% medical paediatrics. In the under 2 year-olds, the proportions are 50% and 50% respectively.

There is an Acute Assessment Unit (AAU) adjacent to the Emergency Department for assessment by the acute medical and surgical teams of patients referred by their general practitioners and from ED. The unit allows investigation and observation for up to 24 hours with the aim of reducing unnecessary hospital admissions. This unit is open 24 hours per day throughout the year. The patients are the medical responsibility of the accepting team, but are nursed by staff from the Emergency Department.

The Emergency Department has daily consultant-led follow-up clinics as well as nurse led dressing clinics. The Emergency Department uses a combination of hand written and electronic records. This facilitates collection of data for statistics, audit and information useful in planning future service provision.

 The hospital is currently undergoing a roll-out of several digital projects with the aim to be paperless in the future

There are advanced plans for a redevelopment and expansion of the ED and AAU in the near future, including a new Helipad.
