Full Time

Applications are invited for two new whole time Consultant ENT surgeons with expertise in Benign Head and Neck Surgery at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The post is offered initially as a 10 PA contract with a 1 in 7 (1 in 9 weekend) ENT on call commitment. Further PAs could be negotiated and for suitably qualified candidates, an approach will be made to the University of Nottingham for the conferment of an honorary academic title.

The post is available to start with immediate effect. Applicants should be on the Specialist Register and favourable consideration will be given to those who have completed or be undertaking a Head and Neck or Laryngology Fellowship. Subject to negotiation it is likely that a suitable candidate currently undertaking a Fellowship would be encouraged to complete their advanced training before taking up the position.

The successful candidate will play a significant part in managing the substantial benign Head & Neck workload and be expected to develop special areas of interest (e.g. laryngology, laser surgery, out-patient interventional procedures, adult and/or paediatric head & neck surgery) within this subspecialty. They will join a well-established enthusiastic, friendly multidisciplinary and multi-professional team. This is an additional new post to support the redesign of the Head & Neck oncological service. This is to enable the post holder and the Oncological surgeon to work in new, exciting and innovative ways within an extended team in managing Head and Neck patients. The redesign has been in response to the need to provide high quality Cancer and Benign Head & Neck services using a team-based, patient-focused approach in managing the increasing number of Head & Neck referrals. Patients will be triaged, assessed and their diagnostic pathway planned in a ‘one-stop’ multidisciplinary and multi-professional clinic run in conjunction with a Head and Neck Oncological surgeon. The job plan provides for 1.5 days in theatre (averaged over two weeks) with the opportunity to develop outpatient interventional procedures. One role will be mainly based at NUH and the other role will be mainly based at the King's Mill Campus of Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust though both posts will be expected to provide support to King’s Mill Hospital.

Our ENT department provides a comprehensive range of ORL-HNS services, and is organised on a sub specialty basis. The department is situated in a purpose built PFI building and is shared with Ophthalmology. A recent bid has been submitted for over £600K worth of new state-of-the-art videoendoscopic equipment to equip our 9 outpatient consulting rooms. There is a 34 bedded inpatient/day case ward for adults, shared with Maxillofacial Surgery and Ophthalmology and a 22 bedded paediatric surgical specialty ward. There are 3 ENT operating theatres with a wide range of equipment including CO2 and KTP lasers, and Image Guidance systems.

As a teaching Trust we have a strong relationship with our colleagues at the University of Nottingham. In partnership with the University of Nottingham, NUH operates two NIHR Biomedical Research Units - in Hearing & Deafness and Digestive Diseases. Academic interests will be strongly encouraged and supported.

Interviews will be taking place on Wednesday 25th April 2018.
