An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Respiratory department at the Norfolk
and Norwich University Hospital for a new consultant post and a Locum
consultant post. These positions will complement the existing team of eight
full time NHS consultants, three part time NHS consultants and one nurse
consultant. We welcome applications from all Respiratory physicians whatever
their area of specialist training. We currently provide expertise in sleep medicine, ventilation, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer/pleural medicine, interstitial lung disease and difficult asthma. There are weekly multi-disciplinary meetings in lung cancer and interstitial lung disease.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as on-site oncology (providing chemotherapy, radiotherapy and stereotactic radiotherapy), thoracic surgery (with four full-time thoracic surgeons providing a full range of services including Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery), interventional radiology (including CT guided biopsies and bronchial artery embolisation) and specialist palliative care.

We treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring
counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but we are also a tertiary referral centre from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country. Norwich is a beautiful and historic city set within the picturesque Norfolk countryside. It has good links to London and is located close to the stunning North Norfolk coast. Norwich also hosts a year-round calendar of events and festivals.

As a University teaching hospital we have established our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia. Currently we are conducting three multi-centred NIHR funded studies, in Interstitial Lung Disease, asthma and bronchiectasis. We also work closely with our partners in the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development. The UEA School of Medicine was founded in 2002 and is now consistently ranked in the top 20 medical schools in the UK. Applicants would have the opportunity to contribute to medical student teaching.

We welcome all applications irrespective of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion.
