Applications are invited for two full-time joint substantive Consultant Haematologist posts between Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust and Barts Health NHS Trust.
At Colchester you would be joining a very supportive and friendly multidisciplinary team of three other Consultant Haematologists, a Specialty Doctor, 6 ward based F2s and a team of CNSs, comprising 4 band 7 CNS and one band 6, covering malignant and non malignant haematology. The department has a very strong reputation for providing a high quality, patient centred clinical and laboratory service. We are particularly active in clinical research with a broad portfolio of clinical trials including phase II and III commercial studies. The haematology research team includes two band 7 and one band 6 research nurse with admin support.
We have excellent links with the Haem-Onc department at St Bartholomew’s. To further strengthen those links both of these posts include two clinical sessions per fortnight based at Barts where you will be an integral part of the clinical team to enhance shared care and allow the development of sub-specialism.
Our laboratory service is housed within a brand new, bespoke blood sciences laboratory, the inpatient ward (shared with Oncology) has recently been completely refurbished and we have a new state of the art radiotherapy department on site. We have a dedicated, fully staffed stand alone haematology day unit. Funded plans to incorporate the haematology and Oncology day unit facilities within a modern cancer unit and radiotherapy department are well advanced.
Colchester is situated close to the Essex-Suffolk border and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, has plentiful outside leisure interests, easy access to London and Cambridge and boasts some of the most outstanding state schools in England.
