Applications are invited for a new substantive post of Consultant Gastroenterologist based at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. This post is suitable for a physician with an interest in intestinal failure but consideration would be given to suitable applicants with a luminal gastroenterology interest.

The appointee will join a team of nine Gastroenterologists (one academic) and three Hepatologists (one academic) within the Health Board.

The department provides a comprehensive service for patients with gastrointestinal disorders from Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, both at district level and as a tertiary centre. The University Hospital of Wales has a large intestinal failure team that supports patients across Wales, and a regional IBD service. There are strong links with Cardiff University’s School of Medicine.

Duties will include in-patient luminal gastroenterology with a particular focus on nutrition and IBD, including a 1 in 10 rota for weekend GI and liver emergency ward rounds, based at the University Hospital of Wales. There will be participation in a 1 in 13 emergency endoscopy rota. The post-holder will not participate in the general medical on-call rota but the team review all new GI and liver admissions daily including weekends. The post holder will be expected to have a wide range of competencies in gastroenterology.

Applicants should either be on the Specialist Register or be a Specialist Registrar within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT / CESR(CP) at the time of interview.
