Senior Resident Medical Officer Addiction Medicine

Where you'll be working
The primary purpose of the role is to provide effective medical services to patients under supervision, while developing expertise in medical practice, in a complex clinical environment in inpatients and outpatient areas in the public health organisation.

Decision making and supervision will be at the appropriate level according to the medical officer’s skills, knowledge and experience. All patients managed within the hospitals of the health district are under the direct care of a specialist medical practitioner. All decisions regarding their care are to be clearly communicated with the specialist responsible for that care.

Where you'll be working
The Drug and Alcohol Service aims to provide the best care in the management of addiction and other drug and alcohol problems to individuals, families and community organisations in the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District.

As part of the move towards understanding signals from clinical work in real time, and wider organisational discussions considering how best transform the operation of the service to one that is accessible 24 hour 7 days a week, the Consultation Liaison Service is seen as pivotal to ensuring wider success in these overarching goals. The medical role is thus critical to the delivery of more timely and targeted services.

Nepean Hospital is a major tertiary referral hospital for NBMLHD and, beyond that, provides high-level inpatient and outpatient services for people of all ages. Inpatient services generally have the capacity to manage high complexity patients who require specialist care. Services provided include emergency, critical care, acute medicine, planned and emergency surgery, maternity, neonatal, paediatric medicine and minor surgery, mental health, aged care and rehabilitation services, drug and alcohol, and a broad range of specialist outpatient clinics and services.

Stage One of the Redevelopment is now underway including an expanded emergency department, additional 200 overnight acute beds, 12 new operating theatres, 18 birthing suites, and a large new neonatal intensive care unit, with a roof top helipad and multistorey carpark to support the expansion of services due for completion in 2021. The NSW government has committed to delivering Stage Two with an enhanced 4 pod Intensive Care Service, Multimodal Medical Imaging and further expansion of inpatient acute beds with integrated care services, all due for completion in 2024.
