York ENT Department provides services for the whole of North Yorkshire. Their main base is York Hospital where the GP posts are located, but they also have services in Harrogate, Ripon, Pocklington, Malton, Selby, Scarborough and Bridlington. The GP trainees form part of a team of seven doctors on the first on-call tier with four GP trainees, one core surgical trainee and two Trust grade doctors. There is some cross cover with Maxillofacial Surgery.
The principal duties include the day to day management of patients on G1 (adults), Ward 17 (children) and ESA. Primary Care Clinics are held and emergency admissions are managed.
Prior to starting the post there is an induction course which is nationally recognised for its excellence covering the management of common ENT conditions, ENT and Maxillofacial emergencies.
During the six month post trainees will get an understanding of ENT conditions and their management and will be able to undertake fibre optic examinations, learn to use microscopes for removal of foreign bodies and cleaning ears and develop many skills which are transferable to primary care. There is strong support and close supervision from registrars, non-consultant career grades and consultants throughout this period. There is opportunity to sit in on audiology clinics and specialised regional clinics involved in the management of balance patients, patients with voice disorders, thyroid disorders and head and neck oncology. Regular clinical governance meetings are held, there is a fortnightly combined ENT/Radiology meeting and active teaching throughout the position.
