Queen Elizabeth Hospital

We see and treat more than 2.2 million people every year across our sites which include Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Solihull Hospital and Community Services, Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham Chest Clinic. We also run a number of smaller satellite units, allowing people to be treated as close to home as possible.

We are a regional centre for cancer, trauma, renal dialysis, burns and plastics, HIV and AIDS, bone marrow transplants and thoracic surgery and have one of the largest solid organ transplantation programmes in Europe.

Applications are invited for a substantive consultant to join our existing team of hepatobiliary/pancreatic and liver transplant surgeons as part of our service expansion.

The Birmingham HBP surgeons provide a tertiary hepatobiliary surgical service for a regional population of 5.6 million, and accept extra-regional referrals of complex cases including liver trauma.

The liver unit also provides a supra-regional liver transplant programme and supports the Birmingham Children’s Hospital HPB surgery and transplant programmes. The Trust is a major participant in the National Organ Retrieval Service providing a multi-organ retrieval service covering approximately 20% of the UK population.

The successful candidate will participate as a leading member of the multidisciplinary team for the assessment, management and follow up of patients pre and post liver transplant. Skills in liver splitting, and living related transplantation is an advantage.

In addition the successful candidate will join a team providing HBP surgery for benign and malignant HPB disease. Advanced laparoscopic including robotic HBP surgery would be advantageous. He/she will participate in an on-call rota to provide a liver transplant and HPB surgery on call service for adult patients at QEHB.
