What NHS career would suit you?

Accident and Emergency Doctor


You work in the Emergency Department (ED) at Hull Royal Infirmary. A six-year-old has been hit by a car on his way to school. He’s stopped breathing. You’re leading the team saving his life. At the same time, you’re supervising the care of a man having a heart attack and a woman having a miscarriage. It’s all part of life in a busy ED. You never know who or what will come through the door next.


You live moment-to-moment and make quick decisions. You’re great in a team, stay calm under pressure and are a good communicator.


Six or seven high grade 9-6 (A*-B) GCSE grades (or the equivalent), preferably including a science subject, and three A levels (or the equivalent).

You’ll apply for a General Medical Council (GMC) recognised degree in medicine at university. After university, you’ll need to do further general and specialist training to work as doctor in emergency medicine.
