Northern Trust services The Northern Trust has a highly skilled and professional workforce providing acute services at two hospitals – Antrim Area and Causeway – and community-based health and social care services across four localities.   Outpatient services are provided from Antrim Area, Causeway, Whiteabbey, Mid-Ulster, Braid Valley and Moyle Hospitals as well as from a range of community settings such as Ballymena Health and Care Centre.   We also provide a range of inpatient mental health and addiction services at Holywell Hospital and acute mental health inpatient beds at the Ross Thompson Unit in Causeway Hospital. Antrim Area Hospital Antrim Area Hospital is one of the busiest hospitals for unscheduled care services in Northern Ireland.  The hospital’s state of the art emergency department, which opened in 2013, caters for approximately 90,000 patients per year.  In addition, the Hospital has a Direct Assessment Unit where GPs can speak directly with medical staff to receive specialist advice and, if appropriate, to arrange a referral to the unit where treatment can begin immediately.  This means people can avoid unnecessary waits in the Emergency Department. The Hospital has recently opened a Medical Programme Treatment Unit and is developing an Acute Care at Home Model and a new Paediatric Ambulatory Unit. The hospital has 366 beds available for acute care. In addition, it offers obstetrics, neonatal services, paediatrics, palliative care and renal dialysis, as well as a specialist dental unit.   Causeway Hospital Causeway Hospital is one of two Northern Trust acute hospitals.  The Hospital’s Emergency Department includes an area for patients brought in by ambulance, who require further investigation and treatment but may not need to be admitted to hospital.  One of the latest developments at Causeway is a new Direct Assessment Unit specializing in the care of frail, older patients. A multi-agency, frailty project is also underway, aimed at engaging with and improving health and wellbeing of older people. An Out of Hours GP service is located beside the Emergency Department at Causeway Hospital. A new state of the art gynaecological unit, The Meadows, opened at Causeway Hospital in 2018. With support from the Belfast Trust, a Paediatric Day Surgery service was established in Causeway, enabling local children to have surgery quicker and closer to their homes. Both Antrim Area and Causeway Hospitals are developing medical and surgical ambulatory care models. The Northern Health and Social Care Trust is committed to creating a great place to work for all its staff.
Our Trust recognises the need to nurture a culture of great leadership, support and improvement. The impetus behind creating a great place to work is that it will in turn lead to improved outcomes for patients and users of our services.

Your Colleagues

It is an exciting time to be working in the Causeway Hospital, especially in Geriatrics. I have a specialist interest in Care of the Frail Elderly, and we have just been awarded a significant investment to set up a Day Assessment Unit for the Frail Older Person. My family and I are delighted we made this move!

Emily McIntosh, Consultant Geriatrician

Flexibility in job planning means I have protected time to develop clinical services as well as to coach and mentor medical, pharmacy, nursing and physician associate staff. I consider the Trust as my work family - in the corridors and canteen you're as likely to bump into the senior management team as you are staff on your ward. I'm very glad that I have made my home professionally in Antrim hospital.

Gareth Lewis, Consultant, Acute Medicine

I am originally from India and joined northern trust on August 2018 as a Specialty Doctor in Endocrine and Diabetes. I am happy that I ended up with my first job in the UK in Northern Ireland.  A lot of people I have encountered here are from India and other parts of the world. My experience has been really positive to date and I would really recommend anyone to come work here.
