Applications are invited for a Consultant Post in Diabetes, Endocrinology and General Medicine (10PA) at Nottingham University Hospitals. The post is available from the beginning of June 2018.

Nottingham University Hospitals provide a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services including structured education programmes for people with Type1 and Type 2 diabetes, transitional care for Diabetes and Endocrinology, an insulin pump service (approximately 220 pump users) and well established antenatal, foot and renal services. Four GP Cluster-based Community Diabetes Services have been developed and receive consultant support.

Outpatient Endocrinology is provided in the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre, run by Circle. Regional neurosurgical facilities are provided in NUH, and there are well established endocrine surgical services at the Trust and the Treatment Centre for thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal disorders. The service has well established links with paediatric endocrinology (paediatric transition), neurosurgery (joint pituitary clinic and monthly regional MDT meeting), thyroid surgery (including thyroid cancer MDT), adrenal disease (quarterly MDT) and gynaecology (quarterly MDT Turner’s clinic). The endocrine team has recently established clinical service links with the Nottingham Gender Dysphoria Service.

There are excellent links with Departments of Ophthalmology, Paediatrics, Vascular Surgery, Pituitary & Endocrine Surgery, Infectious Disease (OPAT services), Orthopaedics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Nephrology & Transplant and Clinical Chemistry.

The post will provide inpatient ward cover to a GIM/specialty ward at the QMC campus (shared equitably with consultant colleagues on a rota basis) and to support the development of an inpatient diabetes service. Outpatient clinics will be delivered at QMC campus and will include antenatal and diabetes/DAFNE clinics with fortnightly community Type 1 clinics delivered in Nottingham City CCG. New and follow-up endocrinology clinics will be delivered from the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre.

Full details of the clinical duties of the post are available in the job description, and the post have received Royal College of Physicians approval.

We are looking for a colleague who is dynamic, flexible and willing to join a team who deliver high clinical standards in both inpatient and outpatient areas. There will be opportunities to get involved in service development as the department evolves its clinical work in a changing NHS environment. The successful applicant will therefore be expected to work collaboratively with our strong multi-disciplinary team to actively drive further service development.

The appointee will be encouraged to support and develop established research and teaching links with Nottingham University. All our Consultants are appointed as Clinical Teachers by Nottingham University.
