Consultant Physician in Transplant Hepatology (2 Posts)
The Trust is the largest solid organ transplantation programme in Europe and UHB is one of the most-consistently high performing trusts in the NHS. The trust has been rated as "excellent" for both financial management and for the quality of its clinical and non-clinical services by the CQC.
Applications are invited for 2 x 1.0 WTE Hepatology Consultants (10 PAs) to join the existing liver medicine team. The successful applicants will work as Transplant Physicians within the Department of Hepatology. The department consists of 14 Consultant Hepatologists (including 6 Transplant Physicians) plus junior staff and the successful applicants will work closely with surgical colleagues in the Liver and Hepatobiliary Unit, Interventional Radiology and Oncology.
The Liver Unit provides a hepatology and hepatobiliary surgical service for a supra-regional population of approximately 15 million. The Dept. Hepatology is the largest liver transplant service in the UK, providing a supra-regional program which performs over 200 adult cadaveric liver transplants per annum. The service has strong links with Birmingham Children’s Hospital with an established hepatology transition service supporting the pediatric transplant and rare diseases programs.
The successful applicant will participate as leading members of the multidisciplinary team for the assessment, selection, management and follow up of patients with liver diseases, including pre and post liver transplant. The applicants must have experience of managing acute and chronic liver failure and be very experienced in the selection and management of patients for liver transplantation. There will be an expectation that the candidates will join the on-call rota for the Liver Unit and this will include clinical responsibilities within the liver-ITU. ERCP experience is not a requirement, but would be considered if an applicant had a particular skill in that area. Some prior experience of clinical service development would be beneficial. There may be a requirement for off-site work in satellite clinics based in regional centres.
The successful candidates should be fully trained and currently practicing in adult hepatology. Evidence of an active research and an educational interest will be beneficial. Candidates must be on the specialist register or within six months of their CCT or have an equivalent level of experience and qualification.
