The advertised post is for a full time General Radiology Consultant with an interest in GI Imaging at Barts Health NHS Trust. We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to join our dynamic team of radiologists to help deliver the service and to support the active training program. The post will be based at the Royal London and St Bartholomew’s Hospitals.
The Royal London is a major trauma centre and Barts Health one of the largest Trusts in Europe.

You should be able to demonstrate excellent general emergency radiology skills and have extensive experience in all aspects of cross sectional imaging including ultrasound, trauma imaging and plain film reporting.

A specialist interest in GI imaging is preferred and experience in GI Intervention is desirable. You will join our dedicated team of 32 general radiologists and 3 GI Radiologists who support general Imaging services as well as the rapidly increasing demand for liver and GI imaging particularly in relation to CT and MR Imaging, GI fluoroscopic procedures and supporting the specialist MDT’s.

The HPB Unit at Barts Health is based at the Royal London site. The unit provides a tertiary referral service receiving around 300 referrals per year for HPB disease, and the weekly MDT usually covers 35-40 patients. The surgical team carries out around 100 resections per year for pancreatic cancer, and a similar number for liver and biliary cancer. In addition to surgical resection, patients receive other treatments such as radiofrequency ablation and arterial chemoembolization. 

The Gastroenterology unit is based at the Royal London Hospital without patients at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. The unit works closely with similar units at Whipps Cross Hospital and Newham Hospital following the merger in 2012 into Barts Health. The Digestive Disorders Clinical Group integrates luminal and pancreaticobiliary, gastroenterology, hepatology, IBD and nutrition. There are close links with surgery, pathology and radiology and the clinical department of paediatric gastroenterology. The unit sees 8000 out-patients, performs 7000 endoscopic procedures and admits 500 patients annually. The department takes part in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme.

Research and teaching activities are encouraged and supported by the active academic department of radiology and there is a highly successful training programme with 35 registrars.

You will need to demonstrate professional excellence and the ability to deliver effective care. They will need to agree levels of activity and throughput with the Clinical Director and General Manager. These activity levels will be aligned to the capacity and demand of the department.

Closing date: 26 August 2017.
