Whilst this is a non-training post, a half day per week will be allocated to professional development allowing the successful candidate to gain further competencies in paediatric emergency medicine. This can be achieved through attendance in specialty clinics (e.g. fracture clinic) and other relevant learning opportunities. An educational supervisor will be allocated and it would be recommended that appraisal meetings are undertaken together with interim assessments on a regular basis. The hospital would encourage the development of a personal portfolio, which will include a personal learning plan, and information about experience gained, learning opportunities and evidence of progress. There is protected in-house ED teaching on a weekly basis. The department holds child protection peer review meetings, X-ray meetings and mortality / morbidity meetings on a regular basis.

The work of the department covers the whole range of emergency medicine problems and all grades of severity of conditions, from the most minor to the most major. Approximately 60% of the workload is trauma, and 40% medical paediatrics. In the under 2 year-olds, the proportions are 50% and 50% respectively. There is an Acute Assessment Unit (AAU) near to the Emergency Department for assessment by the acute medical, surgical and other specialty teams of patients referred by general practitioners. The unit allows investigation and observation for up to 24 hours with the aim of reducing unnecessary hospital admissions. This unit is open 24 hours per day throughout the year. The patients are the medical responsibility of the accepting team, but are nursed by staff from the Emergency Department.
