The appointee will be part of a team of five consultants, two middle grade doctors and rotating junior staff providing a comprehensive haematology service. These are general haematology posts; however a special interest in haematological malignancy particularly in lymphoma and/or myeloma would be welcomed.

The appointees will be joining the department at an exciting time following the opening of a new Level 2a Haemato-Oncology Unit comprising 10 beds and 4 recliner chairs for inpatient and outpatient management of patients in a dedicated, specialist setting. A strong tertiary referral link is maintained with UCLH and Royal Free Hospitals.

The Haematology laboratory was extensively redeveloped in 2005 and has CPA accreditation and MHRA blood bank compliance. The varied laboratory workload includes the full range of investigations to support the clinical services of a large DGH.

The Hospital was rated ‘’good’’ in the CQC review last year, and work continues towards an ambitious hospital redevelopment programme. The Trust has University Hospital status which provides an academic environment to the hospital. In addition to postgraduate training, we welcome medical students from the UCL Medical School. We have an excellent reputation for junior staff training. Within the Centre of Multi-Professional Educational & Training (COMET) is the Medical Education Department, the library including an IT suite, and the Training & Development Department.

The Hospital has excellent access to the surrounding areas with easy access to central London and the rural Chilterns. The rural areas include many attractive villages and towns within easy reach of the Hospital including St Albans and Harpenden. Excellent schools are found nearby. There is also very good access to the Midlands and North, by road or rail via the M1 and A1, and London Luton Airport is within fifteen minutes of the hospital. Residence is required within ten miles by road or thirty minutes travelling time of the Hospital.

Applicants must be fully registered on the UK General Medical Council’s Specialist Register and have MRCP and FRCPath. Candidates unable for personal reasons to work full-time are invited to apply.
