Your Voice our Vision #AspiringToBeTheBest

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of approximately 550,000 people living in North and mid-Hampshire.  The population is predominantly centred around Basingstoke, Winchester, Eastleigh, Alton and Andover. Winchester was voted the best place to live in Britain for quality of life 2 years in a row. 

The Trust is seeking two further permanent appointments to the existing nine Gastroenterologists, with one post holder predominantly based in Winchester and the other at Basingstoke although an element of cross site working is expected.  The current consultants provide sub speciality interests in upper and lower therapeutic endoscopy, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatology, nutrition, pancreatobilary and motility/functional disease.  Existing services include bowel cancer screening, ERCP and spyglass, endoscopic ultrasound, advanced GI physiology and capsule endoscopy.  

 These posts would suit general gastroenterologists and hepatologists with strong endoscopic interests.  The successful appointees would be encouraged to develop and lead sub-specialty interests.  The post holder will be involved with in-patient gastroenterology and participate in approximately 1:10 acute GI bleed on call. There is a GIM commitment currently entailing a weekend on call for the acute medical unit.  The commitment will be minimal for RHCH and BNHH.   

The successful applicant will possess membership of the Royal College of Physicians or equivalent, and be on the GMC Specialist Register for Gastroenterology and General Medicine. The applicant must be a fully JAG accredited upper and lower GI endoscopist.
