Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and flourishing organisation serving the population of Hackney, East London, the City and beyond.
We are very proud that the CQC has recently rated Homerton Hospital’s A&E department as 'Outstanding', medical care at the hospital as 'Outstanding', and our acute services overall as ‘Good’.
Our integrated Trust provides comprehensive hospital and community health services for its local population and a range of specialist services for a wider group of patients. These specialist services include obstetrics, neonatology, foetal medicine, fertility, neuro-rehabilitation, bariatric surgery, and asthma and allergy services.
The local City and Hackney community served by the Trust is highly diverse with a complex mix of clinical and cultural needs. Good working relationships, strong multi-agency working arrangements and integrated pathways already exist between hospital and community health services, primary care, local authority and mental health services.
The trust is an active partner in bringing different services together across City and Hackney to provide integrated care closer to home, and in the development of an ‘Integrated Care System’, of which the Trust is a major partner, which aims to bring together health and care services, the wider community and voluntary sector to work closer together to provide great services for local people in City and Hackney.
Homerton has a proud tradition of supporting and developing its staff, including its well regarded and valued nursing community, and all staff are able to take advantage of a great range of benefits.
Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is proud to have been included on the HSJ and Nursing Times Best Places to Work list, and has recently achieved 'Excellence' status in the Healthy Workplace Charter, as awarded by the Greater London Authority.
An opportunity has arisen to join the Orthopaedic team at Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a 12 month fixed term Locum Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
The Homerton is an innovative Foundation Trust providing a wide range of services to its local community and specialist services on a regional level. Located in the East End of London we are close to the heart of the capital and our local population is young and culturally diverse.
The post holder will join a team of eight T&O consultants to provide trauma and orthopaedic services within the Homerton Hospital. The successful candidate will have an interest in both; upper limb trauma and hand, wrist, elbow elective surgery. The Trust is developing theatre services to operate on flexible evening/weekend elective sessions, which is demand based and the successful candidate will be expected to satisfy this aspect of flexible working per the job plan.
The ability to work as part of a team as well as enthusiasm for innovation and service development are vital.
The Homerton was the designated hospital for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games for all athletes and associated team members and as such the department is keen to build on the legacy of the Games. We have an expanding sports injury team and the Homerton orthopaedic department is ideally placed to further build on its work done during the Games.
The department has a planned audit programme and regular teaching sessions; we take deanery posts within the team and research is encouraged.
As a teaching hospital, Homerton enjoys excellent relationships with our partner academic institutions; Queen Mary College University of London and University College London. There is a strong undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programme.
There are many residential areas within easy reach of the Trust; excellent educational, cultural and Olympic standard sporting venues are also located nearby.
