Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine - UK
A chance opportunity has arisen to join a dedicated Acute Medicine team as it expands and develops. Based in South West England in one of the most beautiful coastal areas within the UK renowned for prompting a family friendly work life balance.
Being a rural county, many specialist services have adapted, rarely found outside large cities, making this hospital unique in its delivery of health care.
The successful candidate will become part of a team in the centre of innovation for the Trust which has successfully delivered:
- £1m refurbishment of the Emergency Care unit
- A multi-award winning Ambulatory Care Unit
- a fully integrated team of Acute GPs, Acute Physicians and nurse practitioners.
- A team renowned for high quality teaching and training of medical students and junior doctors
There are currently nine gastrointestinal surgeons, three with upper GI and six with colorectal sub-specialisation. Three consultant radiologists have a particular interest in GI interventional and diagnostic radiology. MRI and CT scanners are available on site. Endoscopic ultrasound has been developed jointly between medical gastroenterology and radiology and is used extensively in the staging of upper GI cancer.
Daily oncology clinics are currently run on site by five oncologists. One of the oncologists has a specific GI interest and is involved in national and international studies of chemotherapy for oesophageal, gastric and pancreatic cancers. A new linear accelerator for radiotherapy was commissioned for service in 2001 and recently a new generation multi slice 4D CT scanner has been acquired that will allow highly accurate radiotherapy targeting. Two of seven pathologists have a specific interest in GI disease and hepatology.
