Applications are invited for the post of Locum Consultant Haematologist (10 Programmed Activities) with an interest in stem cell transplantation and acute leukaemia at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The post is available from 05 November 2018 for 12 months, however it is anticipated that a substantive post, currently in development, will become available in the future.

The successful candidate will join an established team supporting the Blood and Marrow Transplant program and the Malignant Haematology Service. 

The post will be closely involved in the development of care in the ambulatory setting, and the post holder will take part in the Haemato-Oncology on-call rota and the inpatient attending Service.

Strong links exist between the clinical service, the academic department and the Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service. The role will also require collaboration with regional hospital colleagues.

You will be fully registered with the GMC and ideally have a CCT or be within six months of award of CCT at the time of interview. Applications are welcomed from those unable to work full time for personal reasons or those wishing to job-share.

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).

Full Registration and a Licence to Practise with the General Medical Council at time of application is required.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.

For further details / informal visits contact: Informal enquiries about this post should be addressed to Dr Charles Crawley, Specialty Lead for Haematology via email on charles.crawley@addenbrookes.nhs.uk or via telephone on 01223 254978.
