The John Farman Intensive Care Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge is currently recruiting consultants.

Addenbrooke’s Hospital is part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. CUH is a thriving, modern NHS hospital based in Cambridge, England. The hospitals (Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie) fulfil a number of important functions. They are the local hospitals for people living in the Cambridge area, a specialist centre for a regional, national and international population, the teaching hospitals for the University of Cambridge, and a world-class centre for medical research.

CUH is now a flagship NHS hospital having achieved NHS Foundation Trust status in July 2004. It is also working in partnership with the University and their research partners (the MRC and CRUK) to make The Cambridge Biomedical Campus an internationally leading centre for biomedical and translational research.

The John Farman Intensive Care Unit is a 20 bed critical care unit staffed by eight consultants with an interest in intensive care. The unit is well equipped with Servo-i ventilators, Prismaflex haemofiltration machines and PICCO and LiDCO and LiMON monitoring units.

The unit admits over 1000 patients a year, the majority of whom are emergency medical or surgical admissions. Addenbrooke’s is a major cancer centre and patients are admitted from all the major surgical specialties including liver and multivisceral transplantation, hepatobiliary, upper gastrointestinal, urology and gynaecological oncology. The medical case mix reflects the medical specialties in Addenbrooke’s with patients from hepatology, haematology, and renal and respiratory medicine.

We are keen to recruit consultants as we expand to manage increasing demand for critical care. In particular we are anxious to attract applications from the wider national and international ICM community.
