Acute Medicine Consultant Jobs

Acute Medicine plays one of the most visible and important roles in keeping people healthy, and ultimately saving lives. It requires a depth of knowledge across a wide range of medical conditions and care techniques, the ability to think quickly and make crucial decisions on the go, and deal with an unpredictable set of circumstances every single day.

Working as an Acute Medicine Consultant can be incredibly rewarding. But the stresses of the job, aligned to the after-effects of the pandemic, has left Healthcare Organisations suffering from a shortage of candidates. This means there are plenty of jobs on the market for talented Healthcare Professionals like you.

Why Acute Medicine Consultants are in demand right now

Acute Medicine Consultants and others involved in frontline care have been placed under particular stress over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. While it is hoped that the worst of the pandemic is now behind us, many involved in acute care have chosen to change jobs or leave the NHS altogether because of the physical and mental toll.

The result of this is an exacerbation of the number of job vacancies available in healthcare across the UK. According to the BMJ, there were 110,000 vacancies across NHS Trusts as of April 2022. This industry challenge is an opportunity for your career, as it means it’s never been easier for you to find Acute Medicine Consultant roles that work for you.
