Consultant Neurologist, with a special interest in Muscle Disorders
Applications are invited for a consultant neurologist, with a special interest in muscle disorders, to join the neurology department of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUHFT). This is a substantive post. The vacancy has arisen due to retirement of the previous post holder, expanding collaboration with the Highly Specialised Service for Mitochondrial Disease, and the need for further general neurology support in the Horton General Hospital, Banbury.
Oxford is a large tertiary neurosciences centre, with a busy neurology department, and offers a wide range of clinical and academic interests. Oxford is renowned for its expertise in neuromuscular diseases, and is a member of the European Reference Network for such conditions. We are looking for an enthusiastic consultant colleague to take on and develop the service for muscle diseases, together with a well-established group of colleagues from neurology and other disciplines.
The post will also include providing neurology advice and liaison for the nationally commissioned Highly Specialised Service in Mitochondrial Diseases, and it will deliver a weekly general neurology clinic and ward liaison service to the Horton General Hospital in Banbury, which also forms part of OUHFT. While this is a clinical post, there are ample opportunities to participate and develop interests in teaching and academic work in this large University Hospitals Trust. Applicants should have demonstrable experience and training to CCT level in General Neurology.
Candidates are highly recommended to visit the department and hospital, and are invited to contact Dr Graham Lennox, Clinical Lead for Neurology and Dr Ursula Schulz, Clinical Director for Neurosciences, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (01865) 221770.
