Transfer Team Locum opportunities

The Critical Care Transfer Service of the North Central London Critical Care Network is based at UCLH. We transfer any critically ill patients within the sector and out of sector. If there are no external transfers we support the ICU with their transports to CT, MRI etc.

The service is staffed by registrars with transfer interest from UCLH/ National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery/bank/locum doctors, transfer trained ICU nurses and LAS paramedics/technicians. The coordination of the transfers is part of this job. The digital, web-based booking requests are coordinated by the transfer team doctor. The service is supervised by a team of ICU and anaesthetic consultants at UCLH. We use an LAS ambulance for the  patient transport and to return the team to UCLH. We provide a fully equipped Stryker Stretcher XL (bariatric extension) with an Oxylog 3000plus, a Corpuls monitor and a state of the art transfer bag for the equipment.

The day starts with the equipment check and team brief. We focus on adult transfers in and out of the sector. This includes critically ill patients from all levels and acuity. We are developing digital documentation, you can expect to use the brand new UCLH digital app soon!

We offer bank shifts from 8:30am – 5:30pm for an enhanced rate of £48/h, 7 days a week

Team:  one doctor (consultant or registrar), one transfer trained ICU nurse and one LAS paramedic/ technician
