We are looking for a substantive Consultant Cardiologist to join the Division of Access and Medicine at the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
This is a new Consultant Cardiologist post. We are looking for a colleague with a sub-speciality interest in heart failure to help manage patients across secondary care with complex heart failure and help with community heart failure coordination in Surrey.
Additional skills in general adult cardiology and cardiac pacing and/or imaging would be beneficial. We have an established infrastructure including ultrafilitration, complex pacing (ICD/CRT/Subcutaneous ICD implantation), interventional electrophysiology and heart failure nursing. Our strategic direction is to set up a dedicated heart failure unit (First in Surrey) to provide rapid assessment and treatment of all aspects of heart failure and establish ambulatory heart failure management and rapid access heart failure clinic.
This is an exciting time for the department and Trust as we have recently procured community services and are looking to expand our Consultant and specialist nursing workforce. It is anticipated that the post holder will contribute to inpatient care including managing patients in our 6 bedded CCU, outpatients and out of hours non-interventional on-call. We have also recently introduced a Geriatrician led in-reach liaison model to assist the Cardiology team in managing complex inpatients.
The successful candidates will have CCT or equivalent and be on the Specialist Register for Cardiology when they take up the post (applications are welcome from those within six months of their CCT date).
