Ashford & St Peter’s NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest acute Trusts in the South East with a well-established cardiology department. The Trust provides all general Cardiology services, including subspecialty interests in PCI (including 24/7 primary PCI), simple and complex pacing (including cardiac resynchronization therapy and ICD implantation), transthoracic, transoesophageal and stress echocardiography, cardiac MRI, electrophysiology and ablations.
In conjunction with radiology we also offer CT coronary angiography. Other interests, beyond PCI, would therefore be welcomed in an applicant. We have a vibrant research department and welcome on-going interest in research.
This post offers the successful applicant the chance to work in high-achieving, forward-looking Trust committed to maintaining local provision of high quality services while living in an attractive environment with a good quality of family and personal life.
This is a fixed term contract in interventional and general cardiology in the first instance to join a strong team of eight full time and two visiting Cardiologists.
The post has arisen due to an increase in demand of the general and interventional cardiology service and the post now requires someone with general and interventional skills.
The team will consist of five interventionists, a general cardiologist with an interest in imaging, heart failure and devices, a non-invasive cardiologist focusing on imaging and two Electro physiologists.
You will need the skills to cover inpatient care on our acute cardiac unit and medical assessment unit and undertaking both general cardiology and stable chest pain clinics. It will be expected that you will be able to perform diagnostic angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention including primary angioplasty. Experience in simple pacemaker implantation would be desirable.
Ashford & St Peter’s Hospital is the largest provider of cardiac services to the Surrey population. The Trust performs emergency and elective angiography, coronary intervention and pacing for Epsom Hospital.
The successful candidate will be expected to support the general cardiology rota on a 1:16 basis and be on call for coronary intervention on a 1:5 basis.
