Consultant In Haematology
We are looking for a substantive Consultant to join the department of Haematology at Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This opportunity has arisen following a reduction of sessions of an existing Consultant to undertake specialist work. You will be joining a team of three other full/time Consultants, one part/time Consultant and a full/time Specialty Doctor and a group of Specialist Nurses in Haematology, Anticoagulation, Transfusion and Palliative Care. Our vacancy is for 10 PAs but we would consider applications for fewer hours. The post is based at Ashford & St Peter’s working within the context of both the Berkshire & Surrey Pathology Services network and St Luke’s Cancer Alliance. Broad experience in both malignant and non-malignant Haematology is required.
The department has a busy outpatient and day unit service with a dedicated outpatient suite on the St Peter’s site; it undertakes level 1 and level 2 inpatient activity and delivers a large nurse led anticoagulant service. The diagnostic pathology service forms part of the Berkshire & Surrey Pathology Services network, a formal NHS partnership with the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Frimley Health (Frimley Park and Wexham Park Hospitals) and Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts together serving a population approaching 2 million and providing a comprehensive test repertoire.
Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust itself is one of the largest non-teaching Trusts in the region. It is an ambitious and successful organisation that gained Foundation status in 2010 and works closely with its community health partners. The Trust has 550 acute beds and serves a population of approximately 450,000 drawn from an area that includes Chertsey, Woking, Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge, Staines, Bed font, Feltham and Spelthorne. The acute services are provided on the St Peter’s hospital site which has a modern intensive care and coronary care units and sees approximately 100,000 A&E attendances annually. Both sites have a modern postgraduate centre with library services. Sited close to junction 11 and junction 13 of the M25 respectively, both sites have excellent road and rail links to London with easy access to both countryside and coast.
It is essential that you possess MRCP (or equivalent training and ex-perience) and FRCPath and are on the GMC specialist register or within six months of obtaining your CCST at the time of interview.
