Specialist Registrars Pre-Hospital Care (HEMS)

Applications are invited for the posts of PHC Registrars with Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust. Duration of appointment negotiable for between six and twenty four months. Renewal may be considered.

The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust is an independent charity funded Helicopter Emergency Medical Service working in partnership with three important stakeholder organisations.

South East Coastal Ambulance Service is committed to trial the development of Critical Care Paramedics who will be seconded to the operation to work as part of the team. Successful applicants will be expected to support and encourage the development of the paramedic's training in this important step forward in critical care.

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust are the emergent Major Trauma Centre within the South East Coast region and are therefore a key partner.

London HEMS shares the vision of Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust to move forward towards a nationally recognised and accredited model of HEMS operation.

Doctors from all specialities may apply, but experience in emergency medicine, anaesthesia, or critical care is essential. A higher postgraduate diploma and four years specialty postgraduate experience is also essential. Candidates may apply from recognised SpR training programmes or to work in these as stand-alone posts. Appointed doctors who are already on Specialist Registrar Rotation programmes must have the support of their local Training Programme.

Appointment to this post will not confer a National Training Number (NTN). The primary role of the doctor will be Pre-hospital Emergency Care. During daylight hours the candidate will rotate to the duty flight crew on board the Air Ambulance. Initial appointment is subject to success at interview, standard checks and an operational flight suitability assessment. Before becoming operational successful candidates will undertake an intensive training period of around one month and pass an assessment by a pre-hospital consultant.

The rota is 1: 3. All appointments are subject to successful completion of initial training and line check, annual assessments and satisfactory progress in meeting educational objectives.
