Jobs in Emergency Department (ED)

One of the busiest departments in the hospital, ED is known as the hospital’s ‘front door’, and it's an exciting time to come and join our teams.

We have an extensive team of consultants, doctors, advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs), nurses, and a wide-range of clinical staff who work alongside our team of admin and clerical staff.

Why join us in our EDs?

Our ED provides assessment and treatment for patients with urgent and life-threatening illnesses and injuries.

No day is ever the same. The departments are busy, fast-paced environments to work in, and we see approximately 200,000 patients per year across our sites.

We have three ED sites aiming to provide compassionate care and the best outcome for all:

  • Queen's Hospital Burton
  • Royal Derby Hospital
  • Children's ED at Royal Derby Hospital

The ED at Royal Derby Hospital is the only department within the region to have a rooftop helipad, and in 2018, our Queen's Hospital Burton site had a £1.1million Minor Injuries department refurbishment.

We're heavily involved in research

The ED Research team "REMEDY", includes a team of research practitioners and consultants, offering patients the opportunity to participate in studies covering a range of clinical conditions seven days a week. 

These include suspected sepsis (The PRONTO study), Aortic Dissections (DASHED), chest pains and heart attacks (ACS-ED), and cervical spine injuries (DENS). Two new studies have just opened: EVIS, investigating the use of vasopressor medications in patients with sepsis; and ASPIRED, investigating patients with unexplained collapse.     

In the last 12 months the REMEDY team have recruited approximately 1400 patients to different studies, and have ambitions to expand the team to ensure that more studies are available to ED patients 24 hours a day.
