Geriatric Medicine Consultant Jobs

Geriatric Medicine Consultants put their wide range of skills to good use, and can not only save lives, but also add years of quality living for older people. However, for a variety of reasons, there is an alarming and increasing shortage of qualified staff, and therefore, plenty of Geriatric Medicine jobs that need to be filled.

If you’re a Healthcare Professional looking for a new position in your career, one that puts you in demand from employers and can be immensely rewarding, now’s the time to step up your search.

Why Geriatric Medicine Consultants are in demand right now

Geriatric Medicine faces a major shortfall in staffing for three main reasons. The first is down to the general understaffing that is prevalent across the healthcare sector at present: according to the Royal College of Physicians, the UK currently only has one qualified geriatrician for every 8031 people aged 65 and over.

Then there is the issue that the UK has an ageing population that’s living longer, meaning the number of older people needing care is increasing all the time. And finally, nearly half of all qualified Geriatric Medicine Consultants will reach retirement age themselves within the next ten years, meaning that the current skills gap is only set to get bigger.
