Consultant Gastroenterologist - UK
12 month fixed term with a view to a permanent appointment
A unique opportunity has arisen to join the Gastroenterology team within a beautiful coastal area in the south-west of England. The team is looking for an individual to join them whilst they develop and expand to deliver care for the population locally.
Being a scenic and rural county, many specialist services have adapted, rarely found outside of large cities, making the hospital unique in its delivery of health care.
The successful candidate will be part of a team who have secured service investments in the following areas:
- Interventional Radiology - The team are now supported by experienced nursing colleagues to deliver one of the only nurse-led paracentesis services in the UK
- Commissioned Alcohol Liaison Team
- Direct Acting Antiviral service
- Established south-west liver network
- Fibroscan service
- Endoscopy - delivered in a £3.4 million refurbished unit
- 2 JAG accredited Endoscopy Units
- Full Bowel Cancer and Bowel Scope Screening service
- Countywide clinics - including the Isles of Scilly and incorporating telemedicine
- 28 bedded dedicated Gastro/Hepatology inpatient ward
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a dedicated and supportive team in one of the most sought after areas of the UK. You may be in a substantive post already and looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city or you may be an overseas doctor looking to return to the UK. Cornwall will offer you a relaxed environment, breath-taking views and a great pace of life.
The salary is based on experience & will pay between £77,000–£104,000 plus a relocation package if required.
To apply for this post you will need to be GMC registered with a current license to practice and if you have GMC but it is inactive, you will be fine to apply on the basis you will reinstate by start of post. As this is a 12-month fixed-term contract to begin with, you will not necessarily need to be on the specialist register, but you will be expected to work towards this to secure the permanent role.
A specialist interest would be desirable, in particular Hepatology.
