Post/peri CCT applications welcome for this substantive consultant post in Infectious diseases and Acute Medicine at Ealing and Northwick Hospitals.

London North West University Healthcare has one of the largest ID units in the UK, based at Ealing and Northwick Park Hospitals. Due to the size and diversity of the local population, the trust is the busiest TB unit in the UK, a regional referrals centre for Tropical/Imported infections, the North Outer West London (NOWNET) site for HIV inpatient care and a treatment centre for viral hepatitis and has a large and expanding ambulatory ID service including OPAT.

This post would join the team based at Ealing and would share in both inpatient and outpatient activities including a choice of speciality clinics (viral hepatitis, HIV, Tuberculosis) and would be tasked with developing a new ambulatory ID service (IDAR) so successful at Northwick Park. The post holder would join the cross site on call ID rota with the Northwick team, contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate training and would be encouraged to take part in our clinical research programme.

The acute GIM/assessment service at Northwick Park Hospital has seen an exponential rise in demand over the last two decades following the closure of emergency and general medical services at a number of neighbouring hospitals, including Mount Vernon Hospital, Edgware General Hospital and more recently Central Middlesex Hospital. Commensurate with this high demand for quality services, the Trust has generously supported a number of new consultant appointments along with appropriate junior medical, nursing, therapist and administrative staff to support.

This appointment will add to the current team of four acute medicine consultants (3 additional posts also in advert), nine acute/specialty consultants and twenty-nine specialty medical consultants who together are responsible for providing the AM service at Northwick Park Hospital. We provide direct hands-on consultant cover for the Assessment Service thirteen hours per day, seven days per week. We provide two on-call teams each 24 hours, along with separate teams to cover Short Stay and our award winning Emergency Ambulatory Care Unit.
