Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest
teaching Trusts in the UK. With a reputation for excellence we provide
high quality care from 3 hospitals, and are working towards Foundation
Trust Status.

Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust (SWBH) and Walsall
Healthcare NHS Trust (WHC) have worked collaboratively as part of the Black
Country Alliance (BCA) initiative and established a rheumatology service in
Walsall in October 2016.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the existing consultant rheumatology
team and to create and deliver new models of care.

SWBH is now the provider for the Rheumatology service for Walsall, and already hosts the University of Birmingham Academic Department of Rheumatology. The SWBH Rheumatology Department has a long established track record of excellence in research, teaching and training. SWBH is recognised nationally for delivering Specialised Rheumatology services including Behcet’s Disease, Systemic Vasculitis and Lupus and hosts a highly research active early arthritis service.

The advertised post will join the team of established consultants based within
SWBHT (City and Sandwell Hospitals) and together with existing consultants
will contribute to developing services already established in Walsall and SWBH.

The ability to work fl exibly as part of a team is essential. All applicants
must possess MRCP or equivalent and must be on the Specialist Register
for Rheumatology or possess CCT in Rheumatology. A subspecialty interest
in vasculitis would be an advantage but is not essential.

The post is advertised to start as soon as possible.
