The Christie Foundation Trust is seeking to appoint a new substantive Consultant Haematologist as clinical lead in haematology for the Greater Manchester Haematology Oncology Diagnostic Services (GMHDS).
In 2014, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust entered into a partnership with Synlab UK, the UK division of one of the largest European independent providers of pathology services, to form The Christie Pathology Partnership (CPP). Development of GMHDS is one of the key strategic aims of the partnership to offer a high quality diagnostic service for patients diagnosed with haematological malignancies, and has received considerable recent
investment for staffing and infrastructure. GMHDS will be launched in 2018 and will act as a specialist integrated diagnostic service for Greater Manchester and beyond.
The Department of Haematology currently comprises 7 Consultant Haematologists (5 NHS and 2 Senior Lecturer/Honorary Consultant) and a large team of junior medical staff and specialist nurses. The department is a BCSH level 3 tertiary centre and receives referrals from across the north west of England and north Wales for treatment of patients with haematological malignancies and for stem cell transplantation. Inpatients are treated in a new purpose built 31 bed facility which is co-located with the regional teenage and young adult (TYA) service.
This is a full-time (10PA) position; the post holder will work primarily within GMHDS although it is also expected that they will develop a specialist clinical interest within dedicated clinical sessions. There is also considerable opportunity for clinical and translational research working with colleagues in the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) which is co-located on The Christie Campus.
Applicants should have CCT or be on the GMC’s Specialist Register. Applicants who are within six months of obtaining their CCT on the date of the AAC may also apply. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate excellent communication skills, to a professional standard, in spoken and written English. Where equivalent qualifications or experience are being
offered, it is essential that candidates should provide confirmation of this from the relevant College or Faculty in the United Kingdom and attach the confirmation to your application.
Applicants should have experience in the diagnosis and management of haematological malignancies.
When applying please remember to include your CCT date in the membership of professional bodies section of the online application form, which is where you must also record your GMC number.
