The General Surgical Services within the hospitals of the Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust are currently undergoing a thorough review within the countywide Acute Services Review (www.worcestershirehealth.nhs.acute-services-review/). The vision of this countywide review is to secure the best possible healthcare for county residents that are sustainable for the foreseeable future.

Notwithstanding the on-going review, the impetus to reconfigure the General Surgery Service is due to the demands of increased sub specialisation within General Surgery and in particular with:-

  • the introduction and expansion of a countywide bariatric service which is planned to increase over the next few years;
  • the agreement that is allowing the General Surgeons with a sub-specialty interest in Breast surgery to cease their commitment to emergency general surgery;
  • the progressive increase in demand for colorectal services; laparoscopic bowel resection, pelvic floor activity, bowel screening services.
  • the need to centralise major gastrointestinal surgery and the 24 hour emergency General Surgery Service.

The job plan allows for regular out-patient sessions, elective operating lists, endoscopy sessions and attendance at the lower GI cancer Multi-Disciplinary Meeting with management of, and follow-up of, patients admitted as an emergency.

The appointee will be fully trained in General and Lower Gastro Intestinal Laparoscopic surgery and have CCST.

Secretarial support and office accommodation will be provided.
