Emergency Department recruitment video
Emergency departments have been much in the news this week as they have come under increasing stress through winter pressures and difficulties in freeing beds for urgent admissions.
Another factor across the country is the problem of recruiting staff to work in emergency medicine. This video was made to highlight the excellent opportunities available at Addenbrooke's Hospital, where strong teamwork, clinical expertise, high-level support and training all combine to make the Trust's Trauma Centre one of the most rewarding places to work in the UK.
Media Studio filmed inteviews with doctors and nurses at all levels in the ED, combining their experiences with shots of training sessions and live action as patients arrived by ambulance. The resulting video will be used online to help recruit much-needed emergency specialists and trainees as this service continues to expand.
Consultant Rod MacKenzie explained how the ethos and close team working have kept him at Addenbrooke's for many years.
