Consultants in Respiratory & General Medicine
Applications are invited for these new full-time posts at this 641 bed
acute hospital serving a local population of approximately 400,000.
These appointments will be made in accordance with the terms and
conditions of service for the 2003 consultant contract (England).
This is an exciting opportunity to apply for these newly created posts to
support the increased workload, expansion and development of the Respiratory Department. Appointees will join a team of seven existing respiratory consultants, one specialty doctor, ten rotating junior staff,
six respiratory nurse specialists, four specialist respiratory physiologists, respiratory and pulmonary rehabilitation physiotherapists and admin and secretarial staff in providing a comprehensive Respiratory service.
Applicants with a sub-specialty interest applicable to a DGH Hospital are
encouraged to apply.
The Hospital has always been renowned for its friendly atmosphere and good working relationships. The Trust has University Hospital status with UCL and the Royal Free, which provides an opportunity to strengthen our teaching and R&D programme and brings a more academic environment to the hospital. This department is fully committed to teaching and training both undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors.
The Hospital has easy access to central London and the rural Chilterns.
The rural areas include many attractive villages and towns within easy reach of the Hospital including St Albans and Harpenden. Excellent schools are found nearby. There is also very good access to the Midlands and London by road using the M1 or A1, or by rail to one of Luton’s three stations. A direct link using the new ‘Busway’ takes passengers from Luton Train station just 7 minutes to reach a stop within a short walking distance of the hospital. London Luton Airport is within fifteen minutes drive from the hospital.
Applicants must be fully registered on the UK General Medical Council’s
Specialist Register and have MRCP. Specialist Registrars may apply if
within 6 months of CCT.
Residence is required within ten miles by road or thirty minutes travelling time of the Hospital. Candidates unable for personal reasons to work full-time are also invited to apply.
Please note that all shortlisted candidates will be required to attend a pre-interview assessment process involving the completion of an on-line personality profiling assessment, followed by a 1-1 session, a written exercise and a group assessment event at the hospital. These will be scheduled prior to the interview date; all shortlisted candidates must attend these appointments.
