Consultant Radiologist with specialist interest in Hepatobiliary Radiology
Applications are invited for this 10PA full time post in Hepatobiliary Radiology based in the Department of Radiology at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT).
King’s College Hospital NHS Trust is one of the largest and busiest in London, with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. The hospital not only serves a diverse, multi-ethnic local population but operates as one of the four major trauma centres within the capital, a major trauma centre for Kent and as a tertiary services centre for neuroscience (including stroke), haematological oncology, cardiac/cardio-thoracic (including PAMI), cystic fibrosis, and hepatobiliary (including liver transplantation) patients.
The activities and development of the Imaging Services reflect those of the Hospital as a whole with integration of both undergraduate and postgraduate training with the service commitments to the institution. Following a Trust wide organisational change in January 2017, the General, Neuro, Breast and Dental Radiology services have come together and are now part of the Critical Care, Radiology and MEP Care Group, which is within the directorate of Networked Care. This post is based at the Denmark Hill campus.
At Kings, Hepatobiliary Radiology services are ‘organ-based’ with comprehensive diagnostic CT, MRI and USS services feeding into the multidisciplinary management of patients with liver disease of all ages. Diagnostic and Interventional Radiological aspects of this service are currently undertaken by a team of 4 Hepatobiliary Radiologists. Paediatric Liver IR is delivered by this team, reflecting the historic and ongoing development of parallel skills in Radiology allied to the internationally renowned Paediatric Liver Unit at Kings. Applicants should therefore have wide experience in all aspects of Hepatobiliary Radiology. Individuals with additional, complementary interests and skills in abdominal radiology are encouraged to apply, all radiologists at Kings contribute to general service delivery.
There are opportunities for collaborative translational research with the Institutes of Liver Studies and Hepatology at the Denmark Hill Site.
Interested applicants are invited to discuss the post with Dr Pauline Kane (Consultant Radiologist and Clinical Lead) firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Prof Paul Sidhu, Clinical Director email@example.com
