The post will be an average of 6 sessions per week at DDRC and 4 sessions per week in the Emergency Department. We are looking for Doctors with a minimum of 2 years experience post qualification. You must have full registration with the GMC or be eligible to become fully registered.
Derriford Hospital is adjacent to DDRC and is the largest teaching hospital in the southwest with a busy Emergency Department. DDRC provides HBO for elective and emergency patients for conditions including Decompression Illness, tissue damage secondary to radiotherapy and diabetic ulcers.
