Consultant in General Haematology
Northwick Park, St Mark’s, Central Middlesex and Ealing Hospital
Based at Northwick Park Hospital
Substantive Consultant post, Full-time - 10 PAs
Applications are invited for Substantive Consultant post in the Department of Haematology based at Northwick Park Hospital (NPH). This is an exciting opportunity to join an established and vibrant department in the further expansion and development of clinical and diagnostic Haematology within the North West London sector.
Although all posts are based at NPH, Consultants are expected to work at all Trust sites delivering outpatient care and to liaise with colleagues regarding referrals and laboratory queries. The appointees will join 9 Substantive Consultants in delivering clinical, laboratory, diagnostic, administrative, research and teaching responsibilities.
The Trust serves an ethnically diverse population of over one million in North West London with good transport links to London (20 minutes by tube from NPH to Baker Street) and excellent local schools. It hosts spe-cialist regional centres and teams include the Regional Cytogenetics Centre, Regional Head & Neck Centre, St. Mark's Hospital for Intestinal Diseases, National Intestinal Failure Unit and a Hyper-Acute Stroke Unit.
In addition to a wide practice in General Haematology, the Department has a particularly active Haemato-Oncology commitment providing Level 3 inpatient care at NPH, a stand-alone MDT and a large NIHR-supported Clinical Trials Portfolio of international studies. A new and expanded Haematology Daycare has recently opened.
At the Central Middlesex site, a specialist Sickle Cell Disease and Hae-moglobinopathy centre enables community screening as well as Day-care services, red cell apheresis programmes and pro-active pain management protocols to avoid admissions.
All Haematology inpatients are admitted to NPH with the bulk of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Obstetric (>5,000 births per year) and Paediatric practices also housed there. The unit has recently integrated with the Ealing Hospital site and is currently undergoing service reconfiguration.
The Department is supported by 9 Specialist Trainees (who take first on-call), 6 Clinical Fellows and 10 Clinical Nurse Specialists and is split into 2 clinical teams, Haemato-Oncology and General Haematology. There are strong research programmes in the fields of Malignant Haematology (NPH) and Haemoglobinopathy (CMH).
The Haemato-Oncology Unit is an NIHR-badged and supported Clinical Trials Unit (awarded competitively in 2012) and is therefore a preferred Unit for conducting clinical trials with a proven track-record and a rapidly increasing research portfolio.
There are excellent opportunities to develop clinical services, cultivate research ideas and to enhance teaching programmes (at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels, as a major centre for training students and trainees from Imperial College London).
The successful candidates will demonstrate relevant clinical competence and be able to work in harmony as part of a MDT, with good organisational and communication skills. Clinical research and/or teaching experience is highly encouraged.
For Haemato-Oncology, appointees will attend on the Level 3 inpatient unit and undertake on-calls (1:8; second on-call), new and follow-up Haem-Onc outpatient clinics, as well as Malignant Diagnostics work, contributing to the Diagnostics Pathway within the MDT set-up.
The General Haematology posts will cover inpatient attending and on-call (1:4; second on-call) on the Red Cell & General Haematology service, General Haematology outpatient clinics as well as GP liaison and vetting services. Subspecialist interests are encouraged. Please direct specific enquiries to the Head of Department, Dr. Nicki Panoskaltsis, 02088602742, firstname.lastname@example.org
