Applications are invited for the post of Specialty Doctor – a development role in the Breast Services department, which is in the Division of Surgery, Cancer and Cardiovascular.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust was created on October 1, 2007 by merging St. Mary’s NHS Trust and Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust and integrating with the faculty of medicine of Imperial College London. One of the largest NHS trusts in the country, we have come together to establish the UK’s first academic health science centre (AHSC).

The trust has an annual turnover of over £950 million, approximately 10,000 staff, and it sees over 500,000 patients a year.

This is a new post for a qualified doctor who is interested in developing the skills required to see and diagnose women with breast symptoms. The post has been created to help manage the increasing number of referrals to the symptomatic breast service. The post- holder will be provided with the training required to develop into a breast physician which is a relatively new role within the NHS. Most breast physicians have a background in general practice, although this is not essential.

Once trained, the post-holder will run daily one-stop rapid diagnostic outpatient clinics. They will also see follow-up patients, and assist with the family history and open access follow-up services. The opportunity to be trained in breast imaging and radiology intervention will also be provided.

The post-holder will be encouraged to contribute to audit and clinical research within the department.

Candidates with an interest in this post are encouraged to contact Dr Deborah Cunningham, Clinical Director of Breast Service, email: Deborah.cunningham@imperial.nhs.uk
