Consultant in Gastroenterology and General Medicine
Full-time or Part-time £78,304 - £105,570 per annum (pro rata)
NHS Forth Valley seeks to appoint three enthusiastic individuals to join a dynamic Gastroenterology service in Forth Valley.
The successful applicants will be required to contribute to the general clinical Gastroenterology and GI endoscopy service however subspecialty interests in ERCP or luminal GI would be specifically welcome. Existing sub-specialty roles within the department include inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology, viral hepatitis, nutrition, pancreatobiliary and upper GI pathology. An active contribution to the clinical research portfolio of the unit would be desirable.
The GI service functions as a fully integrated unit with all members contributing to a team-based approach to patient care and this appointment will play an important role in the continuing development and redesign of Gastroenterology services. The existing Gastroenterology senior staff comprise nine Consultants and five GI specialist nurses. We have a fully equipped endoscopy department with 4 rooms (1 screening room) and an endoscopy team to include colorectal and upper GI surgeons as well as three nurse endoscopists. We have a close working relationship with surgical colleagues for complex inpatient care (hepato-pancreato-biliary disease, inflammatory bowel disease, acute gastrointestional bleeds) and weekly upper GI/HPB/colorectal/IBD multi-disciplinary team meetings. At present 7 of the 9 existing GI Consultants contribute to the acute general medical receiving and it is expected that these appointments will contribute to the general medical rota.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the Department and meet key staff. Informal enquiries should be directed by telephone to Dr David Watts, Gastroenterologist/Clinical Lead on 01324 566827 or to Dr Stuart Paterson, Gastroenterologist/Endoscopy Lead, on 01324 566841.
Applicants will be expected to have a wide range of experience in Gastroenterology and possess the MRCP (UK) or equivalent.
